Full length True Grit trailer truly grittier than the first

Oct. 4, 2010by: Paul Tassi

Last week, we saw the first teaser trailer out of TRUE GRIT, the Coen Brothers latest attempt to land a few more Oscars, and it did impress. But now we have a full length spot for the film (via Yahoo!) and it looks even better now.

A young girl (Hailee Steinfeld) assembles a two man team of a bounty hunter (Jeff Bridges) and a Texas Marshall (Matt Damon) to track down the man who killed her father (Josh Brolin). But when she's kidnapped by the same man, the two must decide whether finish the job and save her on their own.

Jeff Bridges looks exceptionally badass here with an eye-patch and guns blazing. It's a bit jarring to see Damon in a role like this, but I expect he'll do a fine job. Check out the trailer below and see what you think for yourself or head over to Yahoo! for HD.

Extra Tidbit: This is a remake of a 1969 John Wayne movie in case you didn't know.

This IS a remake

Having read the Coen's script, I will say that this is a remake of the original film. Only about 15% of the original film has been changed (for the better), with the rest playing out almost exactly the same, word for word (on paper anyway).

I'm a die hard John Wayne fan, but I always thought TRUE GRIT was a stale film, and the Duke's performance is nowhere near that of Ethan Edwards (THE SEARCHERS of John T. Chance (RIO BRAVO).

That being said, although this film is a blatant remake, it

That being said, although this film is a blatant remake, it definitely has something to offer. And it's sure to be fucking spectacular!

Strange that you read the screenplay and the impression you got was: "blatant remake". When in this version, the story is told completely from Mattie's P.O.V., much of the humor from the novel is restored, it is much more violent, we see Mattie at age forty and the end is ENTIRELY different. Seems much more like the novel than the 1969 film.

Fantastic trailer. Too bad the girl didn't get any billing seeing as how she appears to be one of the main characters in the movie. However, the film looks like another home run for the Coen brothers and wouldn't be surprised if they cleaned up at the Oscars.

Looks good but I'm always disappointed by the Coens. The Big Lebowski is one of my favorite films but I really don't like the rest of their stuff. Fargo and Barton Fink are good but No Country for Old Men and Burn After Reading are so overrated its ridiclous. However I'm always willing to give their films a chance and Jeff Bridges looks like he will make this one worthwhile.

Exciting To Be Sure...

but is it "Grit"...."True Grit"? Hey, I like what I'm seeing so far (although I still say that Matt Damon looks like Brian Fellows), but damn it's hard seeing anyone else in that role but the Duke.

Not a remake.

It's an adaptation of a book, that just has an earlier adaptation. That's like saying The Prince Of Egypt was a remake of The Ten Commandments.

Exceptional use of Johnny Cash's God's Gonna Cut You Down but what the fuck's up with that same old gun cock sound sample being used 4 times.
I have that exact sample on my phone set as my text message ringtone.

This is adapted from the 1968 novel by Charles Portis. As was the 1969 film. And Let the Right One In and Let Me In are adapted from the 2004 novel.

Wow looks like Unforgiven might get some competition in the upper echelon of great Westerns. To add to the tidbit, if my memory is correct John Wayne won on Oscar for said performance.

Let Me In gets bashed for being a remake, but this movie gets all the praise in the world?

this film looks amazing no doubt, but some people on here confuse the shit out of me.

True Grit came out when I was -16-years-old. Let the Right One In came out when I was 23-years-old. In the forty-one years since John Wayne's Oscar-winning turn, a lot has changed. So just as John Wayne was a man of his time, I'm sure the movie was too (though, to be fair, the western was either hitting its peak with The Wild Bunch and Once Upon a TIme in the West, or on its own way out). All I've heard about Let Me In is how it's a recreation of the Swedish film, whereas Bridges alone is a far

I think its more because Let Me In is a remake of a film that came out about 3 yrs ago and its still fresh on everyones mind... Its kinda like what there doin with The Girl with The Dragon Tatoo, but fincher is makin tht one soo theres really no room to complain.... As for True Grit its a remake of an old western movie that alot of todays movie viewers are not familiar with and the fact that the Coen Brothers made it makes people more excited.. Matt Reves is a talented director who will do

Matt Reves is a talented director who will do great things but he is not at the Coen bros level yet which is another reason why Let me In wasnt as accepted as this will be... I understand where your coming from cuz the same thing crossed my mind, but just think about the people behind the movies and when the originals were realesed and its acctually a much different situation.. good point though

HoyleHaw, you basically just said the original True grit came out in 1999...

and yeah i understand that people are more willing to see a remake done by the Coens than by Reeves but it all seems a little hypocritical.

The Coen Brothers have a bigger reputation than Matt Reeves. They could make a biopic of Russell Brand and people would still look forward to it.

Also, The Coens have said that their film isn't a remake, more of a different adaptation of the same book.

Looks Amazing

The movie looks amazing. The trailer was fantastic and gives us a much better tone of the movie and all I can say is that I can not wait for this movie. Everyone here looks great and on top of their game. I was dieing at the part when Damon said Bridges missed the shot because of the sun got in his eyes. I can easily see this movie being awarded come awards time. December is going to be a great month with this and Tron: Legacy.
