Four Awesome New Character Banners for The Coens' True Grit!
Oh hell yes - I can't wait to see this! IMDB has debuted an absolutely stunning set of character banners for the Coen Brothers' True Grit, their upcoming "family" (PG-13) western based on the Charles Portis' novel, starring Jeff Bridges, Hailee Steinfeld, Josh Brolin and Matt Damon. The official trailer was debuted a few months ago, but every time I see it I still think it looks incredible. Everyone in this - especially the four on the banners below - looks fantastic, each as unique characters with a probability for multiple Oscar noms. This is one of those films left this year that I truly can't wait to see. Check out all four of the banners below!
Update: After these posters debuted, Empire unveiled another official poster with the same shots grouped on one tall poster. This isn't he official US poster (which will probably look similar) but it is awesome to see!
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 least because we get to see Jeff Bridges kicking ass on horseback! Paramount will be bringing True Grit to theaters starting on December 22nd just before Christmas. Watch the official trailer.
