Coen's No Country For Old Men trailer

JavierBardem.jpgThe trailer for the Coen Brothers new film No Country for Old Men is out and about, and I've got it right here for you to see. It's pretty dark and it looks pretty damn good.

I'm not usually a Coen Brothers fan of late, for me Blood Simple, Raising Arizona, Miller's Crossing, Barton Fink, The Hudsucker Proxy and Fargo mark the best films of their careers to date, but now we're getting some more serious stuff.

First up they have a segment in Paris, je t'aime - a film I'll be seeing next week - before we get to No Country for Old Men, then they have another segment in To Each His Cinema, before the thriller Burn After Reading. It all seems like they are having a serious moment, which I think is an excellent thing.

Back to No Country For Old Men though. The film his getting good things said about it in Cannes, and from the looks of the trailer it's no wonder. Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones, Woody Harrelson and Kelly Macdonald star in this dark thriller.

The story sees a Josh Brolin's character come across some dead bodies, a stash of heroin, and $2 million in cash. While he heads off with it a vicious killer, played by Javier Bardem, tracks him down to regain the cash, and on his tail is a tough Sheriff played by Tommy Lee Jones.

Bardem plays a complete psychopath, something he talked about previously. He said that he wasn't keen on being in a film that had this much violence, but then there was something about the Coen Brothers script that attracted him to it.

The cast are strong, particularly the idea of Bardem as a killer, and with the Coen Brothers doing a dark thriller, I'm totally attracted to it. Now more so because of the trailer.

Okay, the trailer doesn't reveal the entire story and it could do with a little more explanation, but it looks superb. See what you think. Which part of the Coen's career are you a fan of?

The trailer comes through Cinema Blend.



It's now in downloadable quick time over at Rotten Tomatoes, instead of that crappy bad-aspect ratio flash encode over at variety.

Ah, thanks Kurt. Here it is for everyone:
