New Coen trailer

Jul. 30, 2009by:

The trailer for the Coen Bros. latest film A SERIOUS MAN is online and it's already one of my favorite trailers of the year. Who knows what the film will bring (the trailer sells it as a typical dark Coen comedy) but the trailer itself is constructed so well, I'm already interested.

The movie follows a Jewish man in the 70s whose wife is leaving him, whose daughter is ripping him off, whose son is failing Hebrew school, whose brother is moving into their house and whose job is being sabotaged. Sounds like a Coen Bros. comedy! There's even a scene with Rabbis spoken entirely in Yiddish for a little extra comedic umph. Check it out below or head to Apple's trailer page to see it in HD.

Extra Tidbit: George Clooney recommended his best friend, Richard Kind, to the Coens for one of the leads in the film.

It looks alright.

I wasn't blown away by the trailer. I didn't get any idea of what the story is about and the sounds that they used as beats to the music (head hitting chalkboard, hacking, we're going to make it) were amusing at first, but then got annoying.

So, all of that being said, the trailer didn't do it for me. However, since it is the Coen brothers, I'll be looking forward to this. I might not see it in theaters, but I'll watch it eventually (I saw Burn After Reading on a

Pass my ass

Looks great, another Coen classic. And as for Rohan...you serious man? Do you know their movies? Raising Arizona, Barton Fink, The Hudsucker Proxy, Fargo, The Big Lebowski, O Brother Where Art Thou, Intolerable Cruelty, The Ladykillers, and Burn After Reading are all comedic. That's like 2/3rds of their filmography. Sorry they're not making No Country 2 to please you. Can't wait for this one.

I Pass this one too.

Whats with COEN bros and the comedy lately? Are you going to keep making comedy movies?

I passed BURN AFTER READING and SERIOUS MAN will not be cherished by me. And who cares about me cherish a movie or not, its my opinion. Honestly COEN Bros are perfect making dark serious movies. NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN was classic, I mean timeless classic and I know they can do it again.

SERIOUS MAN does not sound like a serious COEN movie.

LOL...Whatever man, The Coen Bros came up thru the ranks making movies exactly this tone. No Country For Old men was a departure for them.

This was filmed where I live. They wanted to film some scenes at the place i work, which is a classic looking family malt shop, but the owner said No. The producers would have closed the restaurant for 3 months and paid all us employees for 3 months of work. But the owner thought that if we were closed for 3 months people would forget about us and not come back. Pssshh! If people saw our restaurant in a Coen brothers flick, it would be great publicity! So they filmed it across the street at a
