'True Grit' trailer: Three reasons the clip makes us want to see this Coen Brothers film

A short trailer for the Coen Brothers' version of "True Grit" has arrived online, revealing three things (at least) that reinforce the film's must-see status.

1. The epic, Western sweep and gorgeous cinematography are reminiscent of the Coens' " No Country for Old Men ." No surprise, since the director of photography is Roger Deakins, a frequent Coen collaborator who also set the visual tone for the aforementioned Anton Chigurh saga.

2. Matt Damon appears in his first major Coen Brothers role -- and he's brought a mean pair of sideburns and a killer 'stache with him.

3. Best of all, Jeff Bridges -- aka the Dude -- is deliciously scraggly as U.S. Marshal Reuben J. "Rooster" Cogburn, the role played by John Wayne in the 1969 original. He doesn't have a White Russian in his hand. But he has an eye patch. And that's almost as good.

Watch and enjoy -- the movie is set for release on Christmas Day, a calendar date that sits smack at the intersection of "Award" and "Worthy."
