Been having a bad, mean bastard of a day.
In fact, I started smiling from the very first shot of this trailer. True Grit is the Coen brothers’ remake of the John Wayne movie (from a novel by Charles Portis); it stars Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, and perennially underrated character actor Barry Pepper; it’s a Western photographed by the living legend Roger Deakins; and it’s been my single most awaited movie of 2010. Having a trailer means it’s getting close.
