Earlier this year the first trailer for Sisters, the forthcoming comedy film reuniting Poehler with former Saturday Night Live co-star Tina Fey, was released.

The film's official plot synopsis teases: "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."

Sisters is set to open in UK cinemas on March 11, 2016. Fey and Poehler previously starred together in the 2008 comedy film Baby Mama, while Poehler also appeared in Fey's cult 2004 teen comedy Mean Girls. They also co-hosted the annual Golden Globe Awards together in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
