Saddle Up with Jeff Bridges in True Grit This June

Mar 10, 2011

The Coen Brothers' remake of True Grit—the film that won John Wayne his only Oscar—is the best Western in years. Jeff Bridges plays Rooster Cogburn, a crusty U.S. Marshal hired by a 14-year-old girl (Hailee Steinfeld) to bring the hammer of the law down on her father's killer (Josh Brolin). Matt Damon co-stars as a Texas Ranger who is also tracking Brolin for a different murder.

True Grit took in over $165 million at the box office and was nominated for 10 Academy Awards. The acclaimed dusty drama moseys home on DVD and Blu-ray on June 7. Both versions contain "Mattie’s True Grit," "From Bustles to Buckskin: Dressing for the 1880s," "Re-Creating Fort Smith" and "The Cast." The Blu-ray corrals some exclusive extra nuggets, including "Colts, Winchesters & Remingtons: The Guns of a Post-Civil War Western," "Charles Portis—The Greatest Writer You’ve Never Heard Of…," "The Cinematography of True Grit" and the theatrical trailer.
