    We were in the minority of folks who were pleased by the original teaser for the Coen Bothers' "True Grit" remake, but the new full-length trailer should satisfy even those of you who aren't gushing, a-critical CB fanboys.

    Not only is it twice as long as its predecessor, this new clip also gives a better sense of the film's plot and tone. Bridges appears to be borrowing heavily from his "Crazy Heart" playbook, Brolin goes dark again -- something he does rather well, and Matt Damon's mutton-chops are still ridic. And hats off to newcomer Hailee Steinfeld who appears to hold her own against these heavyweights.
