We told you last Friday that a new, extended version of the True Grit trailer would be released earlier this week and here it is! Over at Yahoo Movies they got their hands on the new trailer that features more footage, more characters, and more story. This will definitely be a heavy contender come Oscar season. Watch the trailer below…

The story of True Grit centers on a U.S. Marshal (Jeff Bridges), his sidekick (Matt Damon), and a 14 year old girl named Mattie (Hattie Steinfeld) who tags along as they try and track down her father’s killer. The original film’s point of view was taken from that of  Cogburn, while the Coen’s remake we will follow the vantage point of the young girl. The cast also includes Josh Brolin and Barry Pepper in supporting roles. The film is scheduled for release on December 25, 2010.

This movie looks amazing and in typical Coen Brothers fashion it manages to include comedic elements without diluting the drama. The crack Damon makes about Bridges’ eye was delivered with perfection. It’s a nice break amongst all the seriousness that the film entails.
