True Grit - Jeff Bridges

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.

    not really feeling these, think a more dated/out fashioned look would have been more suited.

    Oh yeah!
  • ted
    just great!
  • twipious
    zzz,looks like a movie only really old people could get into.thoroughly lacking in any sex appeal.
  • grizzled badassery!
  • Voice of Reason
    Damn, even down to the typography, the Coen Brothers are nailing this. NAILING THIS. Cannot wait.
  • Xerxex
    twipious you are exactly what's wrong with American cinema these days, exactly what's wrong. These banners are great.
  • Big Boss
    @ #4: It's a goddamn western! It's called "True Grit!" Is it SUPPOSED to have sex appeal?
  • SuicidalOptimist
    Pfft, the sheer manliness radiating from Bridges and Brolin beats any level of sex appeal someone like Megan Fox (as an example) could bring to the table.
  • These posters are styling. Sex appeal, honestly why even bother with wanting sex appeal in movies? There is a type of movies that have sex appeal Twipious and they are called Pornos. If I did have a complaint, which I really don't is that the photography could be a bit more gritty looking, kindo like what Lego said. I'd actually get one of these if they existed in reality and were available.
  • Emma
    It kinda sucks how they made the four character posters but only listed the three names on the posters...I know Hailee Steinfeld is new, but she's still a main character.
  • Cracky
    I, uh... I think #4 was kidding. If not, fuck um. Emma, I know what you mean, but even the Coen Bros need a bit of star power, you know?
  • Cracky
    And holy shit, did anyone notice the bloody bullethole in the big poster? Neat little touch.
  • dustin fuston
    Why does it say 2011? Isn't it this year? Oh well, cool poster though. Bridges for presidents!
  • Corran Horn
    Really like the Deadwood-esque feel of these banners, though I do agree that Hailee Steinfeld deserves at least some billing. Maybe not above the title, but below it maybe?
  • Chazzy
    @14 The bigger poster with everyone isn't the US poster. Yes, it comes out this year in the US, though.
  • CLAW
    Man this film can't come fast enough I need to see this right now but that's not an option so sadly I'll wait and be slightly sad about it.
  • LA
    Only the DUKE ........ these pilgrims need to create their own ideas for motion pictures, but then that would take excessive effort.
