Paramount has released the teaser trailer for the Coen Brothers’ new film, True Grit. I listed the film as my most-anticipated movie for the rest of 2010 and this teaser does nothing to change that. While using the 23rd Psalm in voiceover is a little cheesy, the choir music that plays over the trailer is beautiful and Roger Deakins’ cinematography looks (unsurprisingly) gorgeous.
Hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer. The film stars Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, and newcomer Hailee Steinfeld. True Grit opens December 25th.

Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
