Final ‘The Sisters Brothers’ Trailer Teases Venice Winner
Annapurna Pictures has released the final official trailer for Jacques Audiard’s English-language debut, The Sisters Brothers, and it focuses on the old west adventures of two brothers – Eli and Charlie Sisters – who are hired to kill a prospector who has stolen from their boss.
Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly’s new film also stars Riz Ahmed and Jake Gyllenhaal as fugitive chemist Hermann Kermit Warm and learned scout John Morris, respectively.
Based on Patrick Dewitt’s acclaimed novel of the same name, the film first premiered at the Venice Film Festival, and also played at the Deauville and TIFF this month. Audiard penned the script with Thomas Bidegain.
Check out the final trailer below.
The Sisters Brothers is now playing in limited release and will expand to more theaters in the coming weeks.
It is 1851, and Charlie and Eli Sisters (Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly) are both brothers and assassins, boys grown to men in a savage and hostile world. They have blood on their hands: that of criminals, that of innocents…and they know no state of existence other than being gunmen. The older of the two, introspective Eli (Reilly) rides hard with his younger sibling yet dares to dream of a normal life. The younger of the two, hard-drinking Charlie (Phoenix) has taken charge with gusto as lead man on the duo’s assignments. Each increasingly questions, and quibbles with, the other’s methods.
The Sisters brothers find themselves on a journey through the Northwest, bringing them to the mountains of Oregon, a dangerous brothel in the small town of Mayfield, and eventually, the Gold Rush land of California – a journey that will test the deadly family ties that bind. But, can it also be the path to rediscovering what remains of their humanity?
