Paramount Pictures has debuted the trailer for Joel and Ethan Coen’s True Grit starring Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Barry Pepper and Hailee Steinfeld.
In the film, opening Christmas Day 2010, 14-year-old Mattie Ross’s (Steinfeld) father has been shot in cold blood by the coward Tom Chaney (Brolin), and she is determined to bring him to justice. Enlisting the help of a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. Marshal, Rooster Cogburn (Bridges), she sets out with him — over his objections — to hunt down Chaney. Her father’s blood demands that she pursue the criminal into Indian territory and find him before a Texas Ranger named LeBoeuf (Damon) catches him and brings him back to Texas for the murder of another man.
