Finally, the long wait for a True Grit trailer is finally over. At last we can see what it is that Joel and Ethan Coen have been slaving over. Well actually, if you’ve already seen the 1969 version of the movie starring John Wayne then you already know the story.
Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld) is a stubborn young woman who’s determined to see that her father’s killer is hanged for his crimes. Helping her navigate the unforgiving terrain of the Old West is U.S. Marshall Reuben J. Cogburn (Jeff Bridges).
Matt Damon also stars as LeBouef, a Texas Ranger and Jonah Hex’s Josh Brolin plays Tom Chaney, the wanted man. While the trailer doesn’t show its hand, the movie looks set to be a massive serving of Oscar bait with Jeff Bridges having won last year and Damon and Brolin both looking for a win.
You can see True Grit when it’s released on 14th January. In the meantime, check out the first teaser trailer.
