A new, age-restricted trailer for the Coen Brothers’ “No Country for Old Men” have arrived online (scroll down to see it below if you just can’t wait). Set in West Texas, a man on the run (Josh Brolin) with a suitcase full of money is pursued by a number of individuals, including Javier Bardem, who looks like a reject from the ’80s, and goes through people like Rambo on ritilin. Starring Tommy Lee Jones, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, Beth Grant, Garret Dillahunt, and written and directed by the Coen boys, Joel and Ethan, the men responsible for “Fargo” and “Blood Simple”.
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.
