Returning after 2010′s True Grit, we’ve been highly anticipating the latest film from Joel and Ethan Coen. While it skipped out on a rumored late 2012 release, the film is confirmed to bow this year considering it recently had a private screening, and we’ve finally got our first look in the form of the first full trailer.

Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
