Tina and Amy’s new movie opens the same day as ‘Star Wars.’ Never fear, the ladies have a plan.
In TWO SHORT WEEKS one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year lands in theaters. It’ll bring back a ton of familiar faces, all of whom will embark on an out-of-this-world journey. Seriously, I’ve been counting down the days until Sisters opens for months. MONTHS.
Sisters also just happens to open on the same day (December 18) as a little film called Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so let’s just say Amy Poehler and Tina Fey will have a little competition at the box office. Not that our fearless comedy warriors are too worried.
Both of them are well aware that the new Star Wars opens on the same day, and have been joking about the dueling releases for a while (on Late Night With Seth Meyers back in September, Fey quipped that “obviously [Star Wars is] scared” to go up against Sisters. As I imagine it is).
Now as we enter into the final push before both movies are released, Fey and Poehler are playing it cool when it comes to staring down Han Solo. They are also being pretty proactive, and have released a behind-the-scenes featurette, Sisters: The Farce Awakens.
Fey and Poehler hilarious poke fun at the Star Wars hype, while also drumming up hype for their own movie. They’ve also got British accents. And here’s a fun Sisters fact you won’t find ANYWHERE else: R2D2 is Fey’s current bra size!
You’re going to have to watch the whole video to learn some more amazing making-of Sisters facts. And remember friends, #YouCanSeeThemBoth.
