Watch Amy Poehler and Tina Fey Reveal Their Darkest Secrets on The Tonight …

‘Sisters': Amy Poehler and Tina Fey team up again for the upcoming comedy.

The Tonight Show staged a mini-Saturday Night Live reunion Tuesday as Jimmy Fallon invited his fellow Weekend Update anchors Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to debut the trailer for their new comedy Sisters. The movie centers on siblings Jane (Tina Fey), the ne’er-do-well of the family, and Maura (Amy Poehler), the rule-following sister, who decide to have one big party before their childhood home is sold. The film co-stars Ike Barinholtz of “The Mindy Project,” “Big Hero 6” actress Maya Rudolph, John Leguizamo of “John Wick,” and “Saturday Night Live” actress Kate McKinnon.

Each player takes turns confessing something from their past — and the other people have 60 seconds to interrogate them and determine if they’re telling the truth. Fey and Poehler have hosted the Golden Globes together multiple times and also both starred in the 2008 comedy “Baby Mama” as well as the 2004 film “Mean Girls.” The traditional thinking is that December is the month for Oscar bait (see last year’s pile-up on Dec. 25 which included the releases of the movies “Unbroken,” “Into the Woods,” “Big Eyes,” “Selma,” and “American Sniper”) or films that will appeal to a wide audience like 2008’s “Marley & Me,” which was released on Dec. 25 and became the 14th-highest grossing movie of the year. The closest analogues in the R-rated category are last year’s Chris Rock R-rated comedy “Top Five,” which came out in December and performed reasonably well, and the 2012 R-rated comedy “This Is 40,” which drew fairly well at the box office.

During Fey’s turn, the actress tries to convince everyone that she was once mistaken as a prostitute in Monaco, while Poehler reminisces about the time she helped Yoko Ono cross the street. However, Fallon shares the craziest story: Getting robbed by a drug dealer with a sawed-off shotgun in college. 2015 may not bring everything that Back to the Future II promised it would: flying cars, self-lacing shoes, we don’t see ’em happening over the next 12 months. (Then again, don’t bet against Nike.) But this year will definitely pack plenty of punch when it comes to cultural happenings.

Mad Max will roar back out of the apocalypse while Mad Men rides off into the sunset, rock’s Antichrist Superstar and hip-hop’s Yeezus will rise again. One minute they’re showcasing their Southern roots with covers from the Marshall Tucker Band (“Can’t You See”) and the Charlie Daniels Band (“The Devil Went Down to Georgia”), then doing an ocean-hopping about-face the next with takes on Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir” and Van Morrison’s “Into the Mystic.” Of course, the 10-piece band’s set list is full of their radio-friendly hits, too, including “Toes,” “Colder Weather,” “Chicken Fried” and “Homegrown.” But one of the show’s highlights on nearly every stop along the trek has been a cover of the Beatles’ “Let It Be.” With Brown at the piano, leading the charge, the tune becomes a swaying, arm-waving sing-along, just as it has at nearly every Sir Paul McCartney performance over the past 40-plus years. The song’s theme offers a perfect description of the Grammy-winning band’s own creative philosophy, allowing whatever is meant to happen next to be fully embraced and celebrated without reservation.

Months before Jekyll & Hyde was released, Brown hinted that the group would be stepping up their game when it came to taking risks and keeping fans guessing what they’d be doing next. “We’re all continuing to grow up and get better as musicians and the chemistry as a band continues to deepen,” he told Rolling Stone Country late last year. “Our boundaries have dissolved and we’re going to still do things that are somewhat familiar that people like, but we’re also going to stretch out and take chances beyond what we’ve done before.
