We just posted about Joel and Ethan Coen‘s True Grit an hour ago, to announce that there will be a longer trailer in theaters today and online very soon. But from what little we’ve seen of the film so far it already has the potential to be one of the films of the year, so at this point I’m comfortable giving the film another post hot on the heels of the last.
Besides, this first poster for the film is just too good not to highlight on its own. Check out the full image after the break.
In Contention got the exclusive on the image, and you can see it there in higher resolution. Paramount has great people working on this film, and this poster is just about perfect. There’s a lot going on in this one-sheet, but it isn’t typography overload. The broadsheet style is just right, and that tagline is chilling. As if the trailer didn’t already call to mind No Country For Old Men, that line ‘punishment comes one way or another’ definitely does.
