The Sisters Brothers

“The Sisters Brothers” Get Final Poster Ahead of Venice Premiere

Just a few days before its premiere at the Venice Film Festival, Jacques Audiard’s The Sisters Brothers has a new poster.

The film, which is being released by Annapurna Pictures, is set in 1951 and centers around Charlie and Eli Sisters, two brothers and assassins.  The duo has a monstrous amount of blood on their hands:  that of criminals and the innocent, but neither has known a life outside of being gunmen.  But as they grow older they are beginning to realize that their personalities don’t line up quite like they used to, with each questioning the other’s methods.

As they travel the rough terrain in search of fugitive chemist Hermann Kermit Warm they will have time to themselves to unearth their current state of mind.  Their family ties will be tested, as will their connection to one another - all of which will lead them down a path of rediscovery.

The film’s new poster, simple in both context and presentation, does succeed in bringing the comedic side of the film to light.  The tagline “Brothers by Blood, Sisters by Name” offers up a tongue-in-cheek approach to the storyline, an important distinction for the highly anticipated western comedy.

Starring Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly, Jake Gyllenhaal and Riz Ahmed, The Sisters Brothers will travel from Venice to Toronto before hitting theaters on September 21.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
