True Grit
Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy ($39.99)

Jeff Bridges stars as U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn in this acclaimed 2010 remake, directed by brothers Joel and Ethan Coen, of the 1969 Western that won John Wayne his only Oscar. Matt Damon co-stars as a cocky, tag-along Texas Ranger, but the real standout is 14-year-old newcomer Hailee Steinfeld, who steals the show as the story’s plucky young heroine, Mattie Ross, venturing deep into Indian territory on the trail of her father’s killer (Josh Brolin, looking scarily feral). Extras in this all-format bonus pack include documentaries on the cast, costumes and weaponry featured in the film, and a look at little-known author Charles Portis, who wrote the book on which both movie versions were based.
