John C. Reilly & Joaquin Phoenix in Final 'The Sisters Brothers' Trailer
"Are you forgetting somethin'? We're the Sisters Brothers, and we finish the job." Annapurna Pictures has debuted the final official trailer for Jacques Audiard's western The Sisters Brothers, which is playing in theaters in NY & LA now (and more cities later this month). The film won Best Director at the Venice Film Festival, and earned some rave reviews from critics. 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 Rebecca Root. Ride on.

Whoa, I didn't know they were already adapting Dewitt's novel. I remember critics saying it was a matter of time before they made a film out of it. I wanted to read the book before they made a movie out of it, but I guess I forgot to get around to it D: The direction looks very promising, and the two leads are of the highest level, so I am looking forward to this.
