Watch the first trailer for the upcoming dark-comedy-western The Sisters Brothers below.
Based on Patrick Dewitt’s acclaimed novel of the same name, The Sisters Brothers follows two brothers – Eli and Charlie Sisters – who are hired to kill a prospector who has stolen from their boss. The story, a genre-hybrid with comedic elements, takes place in Oregon in 1851. The film is Jacques Audiard’s follow-up to his Palme D’Or Winning Dheepan, which premiered at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
The film stars Joaquin Phoenix (Walk the Line, Her, The Master) and John C. Reilly (Step Brothers, Wreck-It Ralph) as the Sister Brothers, and joining them in the film are Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler, Prisoners), and Riz Ahmed (Rogue One, Four Lions). Audiard penned the script with Thomas Bidegain.
The Sisters Brothers will arrive in theaters later this year.
