Trailer Alert: True Grit

December 2, 2010

With the start of December comes a lot of films that I am very excited to see.  From big mainstream fares like Tron Legacy and The Tourist to small films that I might have to work very hard to find on a screen in eastern Washington like Black Swan, 127 Hours, The Fighter, and Somewhere I hope that I will have a chance to make up for the fact that I didn’t visit a theatre in November (I know I can’t believe it either).  But none of the aforementioned films excite me nearly as much as the new Coen Bros. film True Grit.  I am a hard core Coen Bros. fan and believe them to be the best working filmmakers, so without knowing any details this would probably be my most anticipated film of the month.  Fortunately I do know some details like the fact that it is a remake of a pretty good John Wayne film (the only film that earned him an Oscar) and it starts Jeff Bridges in the Wayne role of Rooster Cogburn along with Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Barry Pepper, and a newcomer Hailee Steinfeld.  The trailers just look phenomenal and I can not wait for Wednesday the 22 to arrive.
