Released to rapturous reviews in the US last year (you can read our review from the London Film Festival here), viewers on this side of the pond have quite a wait for Jacques Audiard's western The Sisters Brothers, which doesn't arrive in UK/ROI cinemas until April.

Adapted from Patrick DeWitt's novel, The Sisters Brothers stars Joaquin Phoenix and John C. Reilly as the titular siblings, a pair of Old West gunslingers. Jake Gyllenhaal and Riz Ahmed also star.

The first UK trailer has just been released. Check it out below.

The Sisters Brothers is in UK/ROI cinemas April 5th.

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?
