Cinematical was just handed four exclusive images from the upcoming (and might I add, highly-anticipated) No Country for Old Men, directed by Joel and Ethan Coen. Their first feature-length film since 2004's The Ladykillers, No Country for Old Men is based on the book by Cormac McCarthy and has already received tons of praise ("the best Coen Bros. film in years!") since first premiering last May at the Cannes Film Festival. As James put it ever-so-simply in his Cannes review of the film: "An ordinary man stumbles across a ring of corpses surrounding a fortune in cash and a mountain of heroin. A bad man follows in search of the money; a good man follows in search of the man." That's the set-up for No Country for Old Men; from there, I take it a whole mess of trouble creeps into the lives of each man, played by Josh Brolin (the hunter), Javier Bardem (the villain) and Tommy Lee Jones (the Sheriff trying to figure out what in God's name is going on).
These images were released in conjunction with a brand new Red-Band trailer which you can currently check out on the film's official website, http://www.nocountryforoldmen.com/. I'll be seeing the film for myself next week when it screens at the New York Film Festival, and let's just say the geek in me fantasizes about that upcoming screening at least three times a day -- what can I say, I can't wait to see this film. You can check out all four images in our gallery below, and make sure you head on over to www.nocountryforoldmen.com for the Red-Band trailer once you're done. No Country for Old Men arrives in theaters on November 9.
