The 2010 adaptation of True Grit by the Coen Brothers is a masterwork of modern filmmaking that handles the original source material with reverence and justice. Accompanied by a cast that collectively puts in stellar and memorable performances, and coupled with some breathtaking camerawork, True Grit is a must-see film.

Following an incident in which her father was murdered by a brigand named Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), Mattie, being the most forward-thinking of the remaining family members, takes it upon herself to address her father’s final businesses including his funeral – and her quest for both retribution and justice.

A teaser trailer for the Joel Coen and Ethan Coen‘s new adaptation of the classic novel, True Grit, was released last week. It was a great teaser, showing off brilliant old west cinematography, but not too much dialogue. No time is being wasted in keeping the buzz going, and now the full trailer for the movie is online. This time around you’ll get quite a bit of dialogue, a lot of great new shots, and maybe a little Johnny Cash…if you’re good.

The movie tells the story of young Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfeld), a girl whose father is murdered, leading her on a mission to find the man who killed him, Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), and get her revenge.

The announcement of Ethan Coen and Joel Coen making a new adaptation of the Charles Portis novel, True Grit, was exciting to all fans of movies.

We’ve heard plenty about the movie along the way, but the real joy would only come when we saw the first trailer. That day has finally come. Paramount Pictures has released the very first teaser trailer for all to see, and it’s just as good as we’ve all hoped.

The trailer shows that this new True Grit — which is not a remake of the 1969 John Wayne movie of the same name, only an another adaptation of the original book — looks like it could be a fantastic new western movie, and it definitely shows off some of that Coen Brother tone. It also shows off some great cinematography and the expected strong performances of its impressive cast.

Be sure to click on over to the other side for a synopsis and to check out the trailer now!

Some pictures from the set of Joel Coen and Ethan Coen‘s upcoming western, True Grit, have found their way onto the internet.

These images, taken from across the street of where filming was taking place, focus mainly on recent Oscar winner Jeff Bridges. Bridges is of course taking on the role of Rooster Cogburn, which is the character made famous by the legendary John Wayne in the 1969 film. This new movie will not be a remake of that film, but it will actually be a new adaptation of the classic 1968 Charles Portis novel of the same name.

Not too much is going on in the pictures, but it’s cool to see Bridges as Rooster Cogburn, eye patch and all. You can also catch a peek at young Hailee Steinfeld, who plays the lead role of Mattie Ross. Be sure to click on over to the other side to check them out now, and head here for more set pics.

True Grit

It’s been a while since we’ve covered Joel Coen and Ethan Coen‘s adaptation of Charles Portis‘s 1968 novel, True Grit. It was a year ago that the project was announced, and about six months ago that recent Oscar-winner Jeff Bridges joined the cast.

At some point along the line, superstars Matt Damon and Josh Brolin also joined the cast, and just a few weeks ago 13-year-old Hailee Steinfeld grabbed the all-important lead role of Mattie Ross after an intense audition process that saw the likes of 15,000 or so teenage girls trying their luck.

Now, according to the trades, Barry Pepper is the latest to join in on the party. The actor has been cast as “Lucky” Ned Pepper. Pepper hasn’t been around very often lately, but he has certainly made his mark appearing previously as a talented sniper in Saving Private Ryan and as a prison guard in The Green Mile. Ryan director Steven Spielberg will act as an executive producer on this project as well.

Oscars

As always, we like to have the results of the big awards ceremonies here for all to see, and tonight was the biggest of them all: the 82nd annual Academy Awards.

This, the king of all awards shows, has faced much criticism the last few years, and their nominations this year did not help bring validity to their cause. Many of the films and actors were very deserving of their nominations, but many others were passed over in lieu of some big box office successes of questionable overall quality. And though they made a valiant effort to increase the excitement of the show with 10 Best Picture nominations, the end result was frustrating to we the film lovers of the world?

In the end, some fantastic films and performances were justly awarded, and as always, there were a few that rubbed the wrong way. Continue on over to the other side to see all of the final results!

82nd Oscars

For we the movie fanatics of the world, the Academy Awards are just as exciting as the Super Bowl. Many of us throw or attend Oscar parties, and even go so far as to print out that ballot and lock our picks into place.

Over the past few years, this and a lot of other awards shows have kind of lost their flare. It has become apparent that deciding nominees and voting for winners is not about who is the best and who is most deserving, but about what has the best side-story and what the popular names and titles are. This massive flaw is hard to swallow, and the appeal of the whole event is bordering on non-existent.

To help bring more appeal to the game, the folks behind the Academy Awards chose to make a few changes in the format of the show. The biggest of these alterations was of course changing the amount of Best Picture nominees from 5 to a whopping 10, which meant that all of the deserving but not-so-traditional contenders (The Dark Knight) could get their chance to be underdog heroes.

Continue reading on for more and to check out the full list of this year’s nominees!
