Paramount Pictures has released the full-length trailer for True Grit, starring Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld.
Following the murder of her father by hired hand Tom Chaney, 14-year-old farm girl Mattie Ross sets out to capture the killer. To aid her, she hires the toughest U.S. marshal she can find, a man with “true grit,” Reuben J. “Rooster” Cogburn. Mattie insists on accompanying Cogburn, whose drinking, sloth, and generally reprobate character do not augment her faith in him. Against his wishes, she joins him in his trek into the Indian Nations in search of Chaney. They are joined by Texas Ranger LaBoeuf, who wants Chaney for his own purposes. The unlikely trio find danger and surprises on the journey, and each has his or her “grit” tested.
The film, directed and produced by Coen brothers (Joel and Ethan), the team that brought you the Oscar-winning No Country for Old Men, and is a remake of the classic John Wayne western.
True Grit opens on December 25th.
