CBS Films announced today that Joel and Ethan Coen’s Inside Llewyn Davis will see a limited release December 6 and expand out December 20 — during the heart of awards season. Oscar Isaac stars in the pic, which takes place in the folk-music circuit in New York’s Greenwich Village in the 1960s. Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, Murray Abraham and Justin Timberlake co-star. Scott Rudin and the Coen brothers produced. The film will also play in competition at Cannes this year.

CBS Films landed domestic distribution rights to the heavily buzzed-about film in February. Its first screening on the Sony lot drew a music crowd, a lot of movie stars and numerous studio execs, resulting in a ton of interest. Word is CBS Films got the U.S. rights for close to $4 million after beating out two other bidders.
