Coen Brothers Return with 'No Country for Old Men'

Big-screen adaptation of the blood-soaked Cormac McCarthy novel is the latest from the creators of Fargo, The Big Lebowski, and Barton Fink.

It stars Josh Brolin as a hunter who finds a stash of cash, Javier Bardem as the psychopath who wants it back, and Tommy Lee Jones as the sheriff who's trying to find out who's leaving bodies all over his jurisdiction.
