Coen Brothers Adapt ‘True Grit’ by Charles Portis: Trailer

Directors Joel and Ethan Coen have adapted True Grit, a stark Western written by Charles Portis. The movie comes out in December, but the full trailer is embedded above.

The film stars Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and Josh Brolin. The goosebump-inducing trailer has already earned well over 426,000 views on YouTube. What do you think? In 1969, the novel was adapted into a classic John Wayne movie.

Here’s Gawker’s take: “There’s definitely a fear there that the whole thing will feel like too much of a rehash of No Country for Old Men, just with the clock set back a hundred years or so, but even it if it does, who cares? That movie was great! Jeff Bridges is great! And, most importantly, longtime Coen collaborator Roger Deakins, America’s greatest living cinematographer, is so, so great.”
