After their Oscar-nominated western True Grit in 2010, they've gone for another dramatic change in direction with their latest which delves into the world of folk music in 60s New York.
Inside Llewyn Davis follows a week in the life of, well you can probably guess his name, played by rising star Oscar Isaac and we've got our hands on a world exclusive clip.

The film also stars Justin Timberlake and John Goodman.
