Amy Poehler and Tina Fey tear up the dance floor in the first trailer for Universal Pictures December 18 comedy “Sisters.”
The “Saturday Night Live” alums appear as siblings returning to their family home only to find their parents have sold it out from under them. A trip down memory lane while packing up their childhood mementos sparks the brilliant idea to throw the epic house party they never had.
“Pitch Perfect” director Jason Moore helms “Sisters” with a screenplay by “SNL’s” Paula Pell. Maya Rudolph, John Cena, Dianne Wiest and James Brolin are among the stars who will appear.
The release will top off a stellar year for Universal Pictures, which sped past $1 billion in June and shattered the domestic box office mark in record time on the same weekend that “Jurassic World” broke the record for the biggest U.S. box office opening ever. The dinosaur sequel passed the $1 billion mark at the global box office in just 13 days, breaking the record set by the the studio’s “Furious 7,” which crossed the milestone in 17 days back in April.
With an outstanding overseas debut of “Minions” along with “Jurassic World’s” dominance, Universal’s 2015 overseas box office grosses have crossed $3 billion, the fastest that any studio reached the milestone in history.
