First Trailer for Jacques Audiard's Western Comedy 'The Sisters Brothers'
"Alright - you're not going to like what comes next…" Annapurna has debuted the first official trailer for a new western from French filmmaker Jacques Audiard, titled The Sisters Brothers, adapted from Patrick Dewitt's acclaimed novel of the same name. The film is about two brothers, Eli and Charlie Sisters played by Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly, who are hired to kill a prospector who has stolen from their boss. It's set in Oregon in 1851 and is a dark comedy in addition to being a western thriller, which is a good blend of genres for Audiard (of The Beat That My Heart Skipped, A Prophet, Rust and Bone). The full cast includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Riz Ahmed, Rutger Hauer, Carol Kane, and Niels Arestrup. This is a wacky, but amusing trailer that certainly introduces this film in a way that will get your attention. Enjoy it.
