Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has just added the gritty Western drama The Sisters Brothers to its roster, preparing a Blu-Ray Disc and DVD version for release first thing in February.
Based on Patrick deWitt’s acclaimed novel, The Sisters Brothers is set during the 1850’s gold rush and follows two brothers earning a living as hired guns as they hunt down a chemist who has stolen a valuable formula from their employer. Charlie Sisters (Joaquin Phoenix) is a violent drunkard with a penchant for the hard life he and his brother have grown into, while Eli Sisters (John C. Reilly) is torn between the desire for a simpler, more peaceful life and the guilt-ridden responsility to stick by his brother’s side, despite the trouble it brings. While the two brothers pursue the chemist (Riz Ahmed) and his unlikely companion John Morris (Jake Gyllenhaal) across the Oregon Territory, director Jacques Audiard takes viewers on a cathartic exploration of what it means to be a man in a world contrasted by violence and opportunity.
Offering up a number of bonus features alongside the feature film itself, the release will also contain the Featurette ”Striking Gold: Making a “Modern Day” Western”, as well as a Q&A Panel and the Promo Featurettes ”Brothers Forever” and “Wanted Dead or Alive”.
The release is rounded out by a Photo Gallery and the movie’s Theatrical Trailer.
The Sisters Brothers will arrive in stores on February 5 for $34.99 on Blu-Ray Disc and $29.99 on DVD.
