Annapurna Pictures has released an official trailer for The Sisters Brothers, an upcoming western directed by Jacques Audiard (A Prophet, Rust and Bone) and starring Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly, Jake Gyllenhaal, Riz Ahmed, Carol Kane, and Rutger Hauer.
The movie is based on the novel of the same name by author Patrick Dewitt, and follows two brothers who have been hired to kill a prospector. You can read an official synopsis for The Sisters Brothers and watch the trailer below.
Based on Patrick Dewitt’s acclaimed novel of the same name, 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.
Any week we get a trailer for a new western movie is a good week in my eyes. Including the release of the trailer for Damsel a couple of days back, that makes two this week (that I’m aware of). That’s one mighty fine week.
The Sisters Brothers is set to be released in theaters sometime this fall.
