Billy Bob Thornton appears in this first trailer for the Coen Brother's executive produced FX Series. Coming April 15th
Fargo is the 3rd Coen Brothers film to be released on Blu-Ray to date. Not much new in the way of special features but who can resist a little 1080P action especially with Roger Deakins behind the camera. It is available now, check it out on Amazon.
It looks as though A Serious Man will not be ready in time for Cannes in May. Various reports are saying that Joel and Ethan will not be taking their latest film to the Festival that has treated them so well in the past.
Of the Coen Brothers films 8 of 13 went to Cannes. No Country for Old men, The Ladykillers, The Man Who Wasn’t There, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Fargo, The Hudsucker Proxy, Barton Fink, Raising Arizona all appeared at the most respected of film festivals.
The Man Who Wasn’t There earned them the best director award in 2001. Best Director was won again in 1996 with Fargo. In 1991 Barton Fink turned in the best results with 3 wins. The Palm d’Or the most prestigious prize, Best Director, and Best Actor for John Turturro.
With results like that it’s a shame they won’t make it back with A Serious Man. Maybe they’ll be at the Toronto film festival in September which is closer to the release date of October 2nd.
