First Look at Coen Brothers’ “True Grit”!!!

Well, it took long enough, but the first teaser trailer for the highly anticipated Coen Brothers film, True Grit was finally released! The movie, a bold remake of the classic 1969 film, comes out Christmas day. The mega-awesome Jeff Bridges (that is “The Dude” to you and me) steps in the mighty big boots left by John Wayne, in his Oscar-winning role as Rooster Cogburn. Matt Damon, Barry Pepper, and the young Hailee Steinfeld co-star. Interesting to notice here how this 1-minute teaser is edited. Not much focus is on Bridges at all. Rather, the spotlight is placed on newcomer Steinfeld and her story of revenge. As is always the case with the films of the Coen Brothers, the music here sets the mood/tone quite brilliantly. I also love the click of the gun as the title of the release date appears at the very end. Do I smell Oscar nominations? I can’t wait!!!

  1. I’m not positive where you’re getting your info, however good topic. I must spend a while finding out more or figuring out more. Thanks for excellent information I was on the lookout for this information for my mission.

    It looks pathetic. Bridges can’t act. What were they thinking?

    • “Bridges can’t act…” OK so at least I know that you know very little about performance or film. Surprised that someone with such little knowledge of film would bother coming to a film blog.

    I was disappointed in the amount of information that was provided in the trailer before The Social Network. But I’m still gonna see it. I’m just not sure if I’m going to rent the original before seeing this remake.

    • If you haven’t seen the original, it may be better to see this one blindly. I am excited for this — the Coens have a strong track record. I think they just gave the basic story/outline here and not much else….

    Just what I wanted, Bridges for Christmas!!! I can’t wait!

    The movie looks great and much better than I anticipated. It seems Hailey is the main character though so it’s a bit foggy how much Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Josh Brolin have in terms of screen-time.
