Got these two new images in the mail today, for the Coen Brothers’ new movie “No Country for Old Men”. I haven’t heard about it until a few weeks ago when Tom posted about the movie when the trailer for the film surfaced (here). It’s the Coen Brothers, so how could it go wrong? Anyways, two new images. “No Country for Old Men” opens November 21st, 2007. So what’s it all about? Violence. Guys. More violence. More guys and more violence.
The company line goes something like this:
NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN is a mesmerizing new thriller from Academy AwardÂ® winning filmmakers Joel Coen & Ethan Coen, based on the acclaimed novel by Pulitzer Prize winning American master Cormac McCarthy. The time is our own, when rustlers have given way to drug-runners and small towns have become free-fire zones. Featuring a cast that includes Academy AwardÂ®-winner Tommy Lee Jones (“The Fugitive,” “Men in Black”), Josh Brolin (“Grindhouse”), Academy AwardÂ®-nominee Javier Bardem (“The Sea Inside”), Academy AwardÂ®-nominee Woody Harrelson (“The People Vs. Larry Flynt”) and Kelly Macdonald (“Trainspotting”), NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN is written for the screen and directed by Joel Coen & Ethan Coen, produced by Scott Rudin, Ethan Coen & Joel Coen and executive produced by Robert Graf and Mark Roybal.
The story begins when Llewelyn Moss (BROLIN) finds a pickup truck surrounded by a sentry of dead men. A load of heroin and two million dollars in cash are still in the back. When Moss takes the money, he sets off a chain reaction of catastrophic violence that not even the law – in the person of aging, disillusioned Sheriff Bell (JONES) – can contain. As Moss tries to evade his pursuers – in particular a mysterious mastermind who flips coins for human lives (BARDEM) – the film simultaneously strips down the American crime drama and broadens its concerns to encompass themes as ancient as the Bible and as bloodily contemporary as this morning’s headlines.
