Amy Poehler and Tina Fey are an unstoppable duo. They were great together on SNL, Baby Mama is a pretty enjoyable movie, and whenever they host the Golden Globes, they knock it out of the park. Now the two are teaming up again for the new comedy Sisters (formerly “The Nest“), which has them playing “estranged siblings who reunite to clean out their childhood home before their parents sell the family house, during which they decide to throw one final blow-out party.” And if you don’t have enough reason to admire Fey and Poehler, they’re not afraid to have their movie share the same weekend as Star Wars: The Force Awakens. ”We said we’d only do the movie if it opened against Star Wars,” Poehler tells EW. ”We’re not scared. It’s what gets us up in the morning: We are going to f—ing crush Star Wars.”
Hit the jump to check out the Sisters image. The film opens December 18, 2015, and also stars Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors).
Here’s the official synopsis for Sisters:
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reunite for Sisters, a new film from Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore about two disconnected sisters summoned home to clean out their childhood bedroom before their parents sell the family house. Looking to recapture their glory days, they throw one final high-school-style party for their classmates, which turns into the cathartic rager that a bunch of ground-down adults really need.
