New trailer and character posters for Jacques Audiard's western.


Acclaimed French filmmaker Jacques Audiard (Rust and Bone, A Prophet) makes his English language debut with an adaptation of Patrick DeWitt's novel The Sisters Brothers.

Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly are the titular siblings, a pair of Old West gunslingers. The film also stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Riz Ahmed, Rutger Hauer, Carol Kane and Rebecca Root.

The Sisters Brothers doesn't have a UK/ROI release date yet, but you can check out the new trailer from its US distributor Annapurna Pictures, along with a set of character posters below.


The official synopsis reads:

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?
