The newest trailer for "Inside Llewyn Davis," released Monday, hooks up stars Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman and an orange cat  -- with a little help from director-writers Joel and Ethan Coen.

The film -- a hit at the Cannes Film Festival where it won the Grand Prix -- follows a week in the life of singer-songwriter Davis (Isaac) as he navigates New York's folk music scene during the 1960s. He finds neither success nor respect in his chosen profession.

Still, Davis can't think of a life without music or a life outside Greenwich Village -- even if his current one involves trudging through snow, being slapped in alleyways and hitchhiking -- and he disses a fellow singer for wanting the classic suburban dream. 

"Inside Llewyn Davis" also stars Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund and Adam Driver. The film comes out Dec. 6.
