Some folk don't need much encouragement to see True Grit, a Coen Brothers movie starring Matt Damon and Josh Brolin, as well as Jeff Bridges as a drunken, vengeful, eyepatch-wearing U.S. Marshall named Rooster J. Cogburn...

We are those people.

True Grit promises gunfights, snake bites and boundlessly funny banter, and judging from this glorious-looking trailer, we will be counting the days for the film's release.

But if you do need a nudge, let us say this: True Grit  is based on the sad and hilarious novel by the way-underrated Charles Portis (and yes, it was a Oscar-winning John Wayne movie, too). The story features one of the best female characters you'll ever read in Mattie Ross (played by Hailee Steinfeld), a 14-year-old girl who just wants to see justice done for her dead father. She is single-minded, relentless and kind of a badass. Hope they do her story justice.
