When it was announced that the Coen brothers would be taking on a remake of the classic western True Grit as their next project, many people looked at the story cockeyed. Without a doubt two of the most creative filmmakers working today, it's one thing to adapt a story, but to remake a film that earned John Wayne an Oscar? That's just damn peculiar. Lesson learned: always trust Joel and Ethan Coen.

Apple has premiered the first teaser for the film, which is due out in December, and it's nearly impossible not to anticipate something incredible. Clocking in at only a little over a minute long, it looks like No Country For Old Men with the music of O Brother Where Art Thou? We hear very little dialogue - with the exception of voice-over from newcomer Hailee Steinfeld - but the visuals are enough to knock you on your ass.

Check out the trailer below or in HD over at Apple.


As it has been pointed out many times, the film isn’t actually a remake of the 1969 film, but, rather, a closer-to-the-book adaptation of Charles Portis’ novel of the same name (though, according to our own Josh Tyler, that’s not necessarily the case). The film also represents the first time that Jeff Bridges has worked with the Coens since The Big Lebowski, though it’s fairly obvious that this will have a slightly different tone. True Grit is due out on Christmas this year, and for stills, plot synopsis and everything you could possibly want to know about the movie, head over to our preview page.
