Picture 3

Honestly, how many of us all felt that Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal needed to play brothers in a movie? The team up was bound to happen and it did at the hands of director Jim Sheridan. Brothers is the aptly titled film about a young wife and mother (Natalie Portman), who tries to put her life back together after her husband (Maguire) goes missing in Afghanistan. With the help of his younger brother (Gyllenhaal) things begin to fall back in place, that is until her husband makes a surprise return from the presumed dead!

Check out the trailer for Brothers after the jump.

I have to admit I’m kind of disappointed that they showed the “dead” soldier return in the trailer. That would have been a great twist in the film. This cast is ridiculously strong, and Gyllenhaal and Maguire are beyond believable as siblings.

What do you think of the trailer for Brothers?
