The True Grit Teaser Trailer has been released. True Grit (2010) is directed by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen and stars Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Barry Pepper, and Hailee Steinfeld. True Grit (2010)’s plot synopsis: based on the book by Charles Portis, “The story follows a young girl (Steinfeld) who acquires the assistance of aging, drunken U.S. Marshal Rooster J. Cogburn (Bridges) and young Texas Ranger, La Boeuf (Damon) to track down her father’s killer, Tom Chaney (Brolin), who has taken to a gang led by “Lucky” Ned Pepper (Pepper).” Good westerns these days are few and far between. Hollywood has no faith in them the way they had back in the day. The Coen brothers show why the genre is still viable, full of vitality, and intriguing stories. The Proposition and There Will Be Blood are also other recent Westerns that have proved that the genre was still alive. Even though this is a remake of the 1969 film of the same name that starred John Wayne, there is no doubt which version will look more authentic and be more violent. True Grit (2010) will be released on December 25, 2010.
