TEFB TRAILERS: TRUE GRIT
I've decided to start a new section of TEFB called "TEFB TRAILERS." Each week we'll bring you a few new trailers to check out, mostly ones that interest us the most or look to be films worth spending your money on.
The impetus behind this section is the trailer you'll see linked to below: The Coen Brothers' new film True Grit. Yes, that True Grit. Based on the information gathered thus far, it's more of a straight adaptation of Charles Portis's 1968 novel of the same name than the 1969 John Wayne version (which, sadly, I have not seen - I know, I know).
The trailer discloses its roots within the first thirty seconds, and spends the rest of its minute and fifteen seconds highlighting gorgeous scenery, Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn, Matt Damon, and Josh Brolin as...I Don't Know and No Idea, respectively. I've decided to go into the film half-blind, and forgo watching the original film or reading the novel before I see it.
True Grit comes after your daddy's killers this Christmas.
