True Grit Preview: Trailer & Posters

Posted by Grey Monday, November 22, 2010

The magnificent Coen brothers, reunited with Jeff Bridges, working on an adaptation of a 1968 novel renowned for earning John Wayne the Academy Award for Best Actor in a 1969 film adaptation?

Yes, this is true.


With a star-studded cast including Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld, Coen Brothers’ new film, True Grit, is scheduled to be released this Christmas. In an interview with IGN, Ethan Coen indicated that the film will be a more faithful adaptation of the novel than the 1969 film adaptation featuring the Duke.

It's partly a question of point-of-view. The book is entirely in the voice of the 14-year-old girl. That sort of tips the feeling of it over a certain way. I think [the book is] much funnier than the movie was so I think, unfortunately, they lost a lot of humour in both the situations and in her voice. It also ends differently than the movie did. You see the main character — the little girl — 25 years later when she's an adult. Another way in which it's a little bit different from the movie — and maybe this is just because of the time the movie was made — is that it's a lot tougher and more violent than the movie reflects. Which is part of what's interesting about it.

The plot synopsis, courtesy of Collider.

Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross’s (Hailee Steinfeld) father has been shot in cold blood by the coward Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), and she is determined to bring him to justice. Enlisting the help of a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. Marshal, Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), she sets out with him — over his objections — to hunt down Chaney. Her father’s blood demands that she pursue the criminal into Indian territory and find him before a Texas Ranger named LeBoeuf (Matt Damon) catches him and brings him back to Texas for the murder of another man.

Check out the trailer and the posters of the film after the jump.
