    While I was a bit confused with the ending to No Country For Old Men, it was a marvelous movie to me anyways, and True Grit looks to be a great Western. It's a great genre, I hope to see more westerns in the future (with Cowboys n Aliens coming, that'll be great, too, albeit sci-fi western).

    The last coen brothers film that i liked was "no country for old men" after that they fell. I really hope they can bring it back

    @The Narrator: I could definitely see that winning as well. We'll probably have a much better idea after this weekend.

    Looks great, and seems to be a well deserved remake. Fingers crossed.

    @babyH, this will definitely get nominated, along with The Town and Hereafter, but I have my money on The Social Network for winning Best Picture.

    Loving it, loving it. Haha great trailer, looks great thus far. Can't wait to see this. Coen brothers are amazing at what they do this should be awesome.

    The trailer basically sets up the plot, but reveals little to nothing else. But it's like I said when I picked it to win Best Picture earlier this year; It's the Coens and it's True Grit. What more you need to know?

    Western goodness. Maybe up there with Tombstone for me.

    Who is playing Strother Martin's part? Now that's a hard one to follow. And if they make Rooster Cogburn will he reappear as the Ferryman?
