New ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ Trailer Explains That Cat He’s Been Carrying (Video)

Oscar Issac has a bad, bad week in New York City in the highly-anticipated drama from the Coen brothers

A new trailer for Joel and Ethan Coen‘s upcoming drama, “Inside Llewyn Davis,” gives a little more insight into the title character — and that orange cat.

Oscar Isaac stars as a struggling folk musician navigating New York City’s Greenwich Village folk scene in the Cannes Film Festival hit.

Apparently, he wasn’t always walking the streets alone.

“I had a partner,” Isaac says. “Threw himself off the George Washington Bridge.”

His new partner — an orange tabby cat — accompanies Isaac throughout most of the film.

MINOR SPOILER ALERT: Though previous trailers never revealed it, it turns out that he just takes temporary custody of the cat after it escapes from a neighbor’s locked apartment.

“Inside Llewyn Davis” debuts in theaters on Dec. 6. Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Justin Timberlake, Adam Driver and Garrett Hedlund co-star.
