‘True Grit’ Saddles Up For Blu-ray Release

True Grit Blu-ray and DVDOne of the best films of 2010 will soon be in a nice little, gritty package to take on home. True Grit, the Coen Brothers’ western masterpiece starring Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon and Hailee Steinfeld, hits Blu-ray and DVD on June 7 and comes with a host of special features sure to satisfy any further curiosities you have about the film’s setting but there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot about the making of the film itself. The Blu-ray/DVD combo pack includes featurettes on 1880s traditional garb, post-civil war guns, the man who wrote the novel True Grit (Charles Portis), and the re-creation of Fort Smith. It also includes a bit about the cast, the heroine Mattie Ross, and the cinematography of the film, but it looks like the features are mostly steeped in history. Either way, it sounds like a good bunch of features for any western-lover.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
