HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – “A great film that will stand the test of time” (Film.com), Academy Award®-winning directors Joel and Ethan Coen’s (No Country For Old Men) “vastly entertaining” (Rolling Stone) and epic tale of frontier justice TRUE GRIT debuts in a Blu-ray™/DVD Combo Pack with Digital Copy and on standard DVD June 7, 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment. The gritty and memorable film has been embraced by audiences and critics alike, earning over $165 million at the U.S. box office, nominated for 10 Academy Awards and named by more than 75 reviewers as one of the top 10 films of the year.

    Done deal.

  2. Brian White

    I’ll come over and watch it at Gregg’s house. I’m hesitant about this one.

  3. Aaron Neuwirth

    just to be clear, you’ve seen Burlesque and The Tourist multiple times, and your hesitant about watching True Grit.

  4. Brian White

    I’m not a fan of westerns or how the Coen brothers resolve their films, hence my hesitancy.

  5. Jiminy Critic

    Really enjoyed this one. Brian, you’re beginning to scare me.
