The Sisters Brothers Trailer Offers Up An Irreverent Look At An All-Star Western

Annapurna Pictures has released the first trailer for The Sisters Brothers, the upcoming dark-comedy-western from director Jacques Audiard! The story, a genre-hybrid with comedic elements, takes place in Oregon in 1851 and based on Patrick Dewitt’s acclaimed novel of the same name.

Check out the first trailer for The Sisters Brothers below:

The trailer, set to a variation on Soft Cell’s 1980s classic “Tainted Love,” introduces the brothers with Eli (Reilly) ready to hang up his six-shooter and “open a store.” Charlie (Phoenix) is skeptical and likes their current gig — as well as having a taste for a tipple. Gyllenhaal is their prospector prey and Ahmed the chemist who’s developed a formula for finding gold. The film is Jacques Audiard’s follow-up to his Palme D’Or Winning Dheepan, which premiered at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.

Starring as the title pair are Joaquin Phoenix (Walk the Line, Her, The Master) and John C. Reilly (Step Brothers, Wreck-It Ralph), and joining them in the film are Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler, Prisoners), and Riz Ahmed (Rogue One, Venom).

Audiard’s longtime collaborator Thomas Bidegain co-wrote the script with him and finally brought this long-in-development project to the screen. John C. Reilly originally optioned the novel and will act as one of the produces on the film. Incidentally, Budegain directed Reilly in the 2015 film Les Cowboys.

Her Trailer: Spike Jonze’s new Sci-Fi Romance

Spike Jonze is back in the spotlight after about four years of no feature films, with his new flick Her. The story is about a heartbroken man who finds solace in an A.I computer that acts as his girlfriend, and it looks to be a cool blend of Sci-Fi over the basic falling in love storyline. The film stars Joaquin Phoenix as the loner, who on paper sounds similar to his previous character in The Master as he looks to be disconnected and awkward in society. However, the portrayal in the trailer seems to be totally different, which goes to show Phoenix’s tremendous range. Accompanying him is a killer cast including Scarlett Johansson (The Avengers) as the computer voice Sarah, Rooney Mara (The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo), Amy Adams (The Master), Olivia Wilde (The Change Up), and Chris Pratt (Parks and Rec.). Check out the Her trailer below.

The film looks great, and it’s sure to be one in contention for awards later this year. What most excites me is the Sci-Fi Romance tone that Jonze seems to be getting at, akin to Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind. Keeping the heart, and using the Sci-fi as simply a mechanism is what makes me excited for this.

Also, a neat note, this is Spike Jonze’s first solo screenwriting credit on a film, which hopefully proves to be a good thing as Sci-Fi is done best with a clear vision from start to finish.

Her opens November 20, just two days before the major blockbuster which is bound to make big bucks, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
