Four new character banners have been released for Joel and Ethan Coen’s latest film True Grit. The film is an adaptation of the novel from Charles Portis of the same name, and not so much a remake of the 1969 feature which won John Wayne his long awaited Oscar. These posters include stars Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, and Hailee Steinfeld both together and apart. Check them out below…
The story of True Grit centers on a U.S. Marshal (Bridges), his sidekick (Damon), and a 14 year old girl named Mattie (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.
From the looks of these posters everybody’s got a gun — well, almost. Young Mattie is just holding her hat but she’ll pick up a weapon at some point in the film. The character posters come courtesy of IMDB, and are some of the first ones we’ve seen in promotion of the film. So how do you like them?
True Grit is scheduled to hit theaters on December 25, 2010. Merry Christmas to you!
