This past weekend, Paramount released a new trailer for the Coen Brothers’ True Grit into theaters and now they’ve made that trailer available online. This new trailer is much more plot heavily (I would say it shows almost too much) but still badass. You also get a nice sense of the Coens’ signature sense of humor and I like that it finishes up by using Johnny Cash’s “God’s Gonna Cut You Down”.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer and click here to see the first trailer, which was much heavier on atmosphere than plot. True Grit stars Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld. It opens December 25th.

Here’s the official synopsis for True Grit:
Fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross’s (Hailee Steinfeld) father has been shot in cold blood by the coward Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), and she is determined to bring him to justice. Enlisting the help of a trigger-happy, drunken U.S. Marshal, Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges), she sets out with him — over his objections — to hunt down Chaney. Her father’s blood demands that she pursue the criminal into Indian territory and find him before a Texas Ranger named LeBoeuf (Matt Damon) catches him and brings him back to Texas for the murder of another man.
