‘Sisters’ TV Spot: Get Pumped for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s New Sibling Comedy
As we prepare for our imaginary BFFs Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to host the hell out of the Golden Globes once again during tonight’s awards telecast, Universal has released the first teaser for their upcoming comedy ‘Sisters.’ Like you needed another reason to be psyched for the holiest of comedic and platonic unions.
Former ‘SNL’ co-stars Fey and Poehler are reuniting on the big screen for ‘Sisters,’ the new film from ‘Pitch Perfect’ director Jason Moore about two estranged siblings who return to their childhood home to gather their things before their parents sell it. In a fit of nostalgia, the pair decide to throw one final, epic bash with all their friends from high school, and things predictably get way out of hand.
Fey and Poehler previously co-starred in ‘Baby Mama,’ a comedy that’s been pretty underrated since its release in 2008, but hopefully ‘Sisters’ will be better received when it hits theaters this December. Oh, and it shares a release date with ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ but Fey and Poehler totally aren’t worried about that. Poehler recently expressed the pair’s confidence in an interview with EW, saying:
We said we’d only do the movie if it opened against Star Wars. We’re not scared. It’s what gets us up in the morning: We are going to f—ing crush Star Wars.
Yes, we’re all stoked for ‘The Force Awakens,’ but there’s plenty of room for us to be excited for both films. Watching that first teaser, ‘Sisters’ has the potential to be everything we want from Fey and Poehler. Hopefully this means we’re getting a full trailer pretty soon. You know a great place to premiere new trailers? Awards shows. And I think I know a couple of hilarious ladies who are hosting one tonight.
‘Sisters’ hits theaters on December 18. Watch out, ‘Star Wars.’
