Paramount has finally released the details on the released for the DVD and Blu-ray/DVD combo pack for the Coen Brothers’ film, True Grit. Extras on the DVD will include 4 featurettes (“Mattie’s True Grit”, “From Bustles to Buckskin—Dressing for the 1880s”, “Re-Creating Fort Smith”, “The Cast”), and a digital copy of the film.
The Blu-ray/DVD Combo release will include all of that plus additional featurettes (“Charles Portis — The Greatest Writer You’ve Never Heard Of…”, “The Cinematography of True Grit”, “Colts, Winchesters & Remingtons: The Guns of a Post-Civil War Western”), and the theatrical trailer.
Somehow I forgot to write a review for this movie as well. Just to come out and say it, this is a fantastic western. It was nominated for a number of Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and rightfully so. The cast is uniformly great with some classic direction by Joel & Ethan Coen. The only problem I had with this film was that I felt the ending to be a bit unsatisfying, but other than that, it was one of the most entertaining films of the year. I wrote a short review for it here.
The film will be released on June 7th, check out the artwork below:
