First Trailer For ‘The Sisters Brothers’!

First Trailer For ‘The Sisters Brothers’!

The first official trailer ‘The Sisters Brothers’, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Joaquin Phoenix, John C. Reilly and Riz Ahmed, has been released. The film, with the tagline “Brothers by blood, Sisters by name,” is expected on the fall festival circuit.

Based on Patrick Dewitt’s acclaimed novel of the same name, The Sisters Brothers follows siblings Eli and Charlie Sisters who are hired to kill a prospector who has stolen from their boss. The story, a genre-hybrid with comedic elements, takes place in Oregon in 1851.

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 having a taste for a tipple. Gyllenhaal is their prospector prey and Ahmed the chemist who’s developed a formula for finding gold.

First Trailer For ‘Wildlife’!!!

First Trailer For ‘Wildlife’!!!

The first trailer for “Wildlife” was released by IFC FilmsPaul Dano’s directorial debut, “Wildlife,” has been making the rounds with major film festivals in early 2018, premiering at this year’s Sundance and also having a marquee spot during the Cannes Film Festival, recently.

“Wildlife” follows a quote-unquote nuclear family in 1960s Montana. With the father, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, recently losing his job and venturing away from the family to find work, his wife Jeanette, played by Carey Mulligan is left to figure out everything else, with their 14-year-old son. As seen in the trailer, “Wildlife” is very much a drama, as you see the young boy witnessing the dissolution of his parents’ marriage right before his eyes.

The film was co-written by Dano and Zoe Kazan, and also stars Ed Oxenbould and Bill Camp.

“Wildlife” is set to hit theaters on October 19.

Here’s the official synopsis:

IFC Films presents WILDLIFE, the directorial debut of Paul Dano (THERE WILL BE BLOOD, LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE), co-written along with Zoe Kazan (THE BIG SICK). Elegantly adapted from Richard Ford’s novel of the same name, Carey Mulligan (MUDBOUND, AN EDUCATION) delivers one of her finest performances to date as Jeanette, a complex woman whose self-determination and self-involvement disrupts the values and expectations of a 1960s nuclear family. Fourteen-year-old Joe played by newcomer Ed Oxenbould, is the only child of Jeanette (Mulligan) and Jerry (Jake Gyllenhaal)—a housewife and a golf pro—in a small town in 1960s Montana. Nearby, an uncontrolled forest fire rages close to the Canadian border, and when Jerry loses his job—and his sense of purpose—he decides to join the cause of fighting the fire, leaving his wife and son to fend for themselves. Suddenly forced into the role of an adult, Joe witnesses his mother’s struggle as she tries to keep her head above water. With precise details and textures of its specific time and place, WILDLIFE commits to the viewpoint of a teenage boy observing the gradual dissolution of his parents’ marriage. The film premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, and will also screened as the opening night film in La Semaine de la Critique at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival. WILDLIFE will be released by IFC Films on October 19, 2018.
