No Country For Old Men (or, Javier Bardem Is Giving Me Nightmares)

I’ve not read Cormac McCarthy’s No Country For Old Men (though I’m in the middle of The Road). But I am very familiar with the work of the Coen Brothers, and their involvement would be reason enough for me to see their upcoming adaptation of McCarthy’s novel. And everything I’ve heard of the film — for example, its reception at this year’s Cannes festival — has me thinking this film is something special.

Sealing the deal, however, is this recent trailer, which is not only full of haunting sights and sounds, but also features Javier Bardem (Collateral, The Sea Inside) being such a malevolent bad-ass, he could probably make Death himself pee his pants.

No Country For Old Men will be released here the States on November 21, 2007.
