With a little help from The Coen Brothers.
Stretch those chubby vocal chords, gents.
It’s 2012’s hijinksiest film.
Things are going to get loud and sweaty.
Sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you.
Tara Reid will not be in attendance.
‘Gambit’ stars Cameron Diaz and Colin Firth in a remake of a 1986 British heist film. This is a remake that actually looks promising.
The other day when Tara Reid was saying things, just about every person on Earth who is not Tara Reid wisely dismissed it. However, there are two people who were not so quick to dismiss the project. The Coen Brothers!
One thing you’ll notice when you see True Grit is that the dialogue is a little different. Obviously they don’t talk like OMG, WTF in the Old West, but it’s different than even the Clint Eastwood and John Wayne westerns.
It’s a good thing True Grit is a good movie, otherwise the critics would have had a field day rhyming with Grit.
Directors: The Coen Brothers Cast: Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Hailee Steinfeld Synopsis: A tough U.S. Marshal helps a stubborn young woman track down her father’s murderer. Release Date:…
Releasing one bad-ass poster for True Grit just isn’t enough to appease those Coen Brothers. As the film’s December release draws near, the marketing team is beginning their full press.
What is this? ‘The Wicker Man‘? Hot on the heels of last week’s True Grit teaser comes the full length jump off. This time around we see a lot more…
The teaser for Joel and Ethan Coen's True Grit just rode into town, and it looks like a good one. The action follows Hailee Steinfeld's Mattie Ross as she teams with Jeff Bridges to hunt down the coward that killed her pappy. You might be quick to say that the Coens are trying to recapture the magic of No Country For Old Men, but that I really don't see the similarities. For instance, this teaser keeps it fresh with sun-bleached Western scenery, gunfights, Josh Brolin, and dorky haircuts. Oh.
Check out the teaser after the jump…
Yesterday we saw Colin Farrell sporting a combover for Horrible Bosses, and now we've got a first look at Jeff Bridges wearing an eye patch for The Coen Brothers' True Grit. Oh those silly actors and their dress-up make believe fun time. Bridges plays alcoholic U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn in the re-adaptation of the Charles Portis novel.The original adaptation starred John Wayne in the role of Rooster, who teams up with a 14-year old girl to avenge her father's murder. Hailey Steinfeld plays the girl, Mattie Ross, this time around, and Matt Damon and Josh Brolin are also on board as a Texas Ranger and the murderer respectively. The film opens Christmas Day. I just basically wrote the formula for an Oscar nomination. Especially since Bridges has the drunk character thing on lock. If you win an Oscar twice for playing a drunk do you have to go to AAA? That's Acting Alcoholics Anonymous for all you sober non-thespians out there. Don't worry, my writing packet is already in the mail to Leno. Check out more pics of Bridges as Rooster after the jump.
After casting a nationwide net, Joel and Ethan Coen have found an actress to portray the young protagonist in their True Grit remake. Thirteen-year old Hailee Steinfeld will be joining forces with Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon to hunt down Josh Brolin. Though Steinfeld isn't as popular as her co-stars, all of that is going to change. Her character, the fourteen-year old Mattie Ross, is described as a “simple, tough as nails, young woman in post-Civil War Arkansas. Her unusually steely nerves and straightforward manner are often surprising to those she meets. She possessed plenty of true grit and determination."Let's hope that Hailee Steinfeld is every bit as precocious as the character calls for. Remember, fourteen-year olds in Arkansas are considered mature for their age. They're at least mature enough to legally wed. (Deadline)
