What was that familiar adage back then? If you can’t beat ‘em, join em! Right?
Well, that’s what comedians Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are burdening themselves with as the duo’s upcoming comedy “Sisters” will be released on the same day that J.J. Abrams’ juggernaut space opera “Star Wars:The Force Awakens will be unleashed on theaters.
Watch the video of their latest featurette to clarify for yourselves, if the duo has really submitted themselves to the “Force,” especially with their hashtag of #YOUCANWATCHTHEMBOTH.
According to Slash Film, Poehler even said last year as a joke that, “We said we’d only do the movie if it opened against Star Wars.”
The 18th of Dec. 2015 has long been taken over in the calendar by not just Disney, who bought the franchise from Lucasfilm and but also the millions of rabid “Star Wars” fanatics as their day of reckoning for the long-awaited seventh installment of the franchise.
Poehler however continued her yarn saying, “We’re not scared. It’s what gets us up in the morning: We are going to f—ing crush Star Wars.”
The Saturday Night Live veterans have took on the monumental task of Universal Studios plausible tactic of agreeing to take on the movie’s utter fate of being stampede come opening as the said footage leans on being introspective of its unimportance especially with Fey incorporating a sardonic British accent.
The movie is directed by Jason Moore and is about two opposite sisters in their middle age, who organized a send-off party of their childhood home before it gets sold. To further up the ante the video takes a stab on the massive campaign promotion of “Star Wars” (see Fey connect the size of her breasts to one famous android of the movie), “R2-D2 is my current bra size!” and the entire obsession of the movie industry with sequels and reboots.
Movie Insider gave us a list of those so-called “other movies” opening tragically on December 18 alongside “Star Wars:The Force Awakens” which includes Fox Family’s live-action animated comedy “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip” and the Bruce Willis header “Extraction.”
