Check Out a Great Vintage Poster for the Coen Bros' True Grit!
Punishment, retribution, it's all there. In Contention has unveiled a new teaser poster for the Coen Brothers' True Grit and damn is it nice. It's very hard to market a western these days, but I love that Paramount and the Coens are still creating the kind of media that fans of westerns love. This poster is one of those vintage Wanted sign one-sheets with names rather than faces. And I love the sole bullet hole with the blood dripping out of it. Kind of reminds me of the original There Will Be Blood teaser poster and we all know how amazing that movie is. With the teaser trailer last week, True Grit is now one of my most anticipated films this year.
The Coen Brothers' True Grit, which is apparently a more faithful take on the Portis novel, is about a young girl (Steinfeld) who's father is murdered. Determined to bring the killer to justice, Mattie enlists the help of a hard-drinking U.S. Marshal (Bridges) to track down the killer before a Texas Ranger (Damon) does. As a fan of the Coen Brothers and someone who can still appreciate a good western, this is one film I'm certainly looking forward to, at the least because we get to see Jeff Bridges kickin' ass on horseback! Paramount has already scheduled True Grit for release on Christmas Day, December 25th. Watch the teaser trailer here.
