The Family Trailer

"Let's talk about the complaints I have received…" Relativity has unleashed the first trailer for Luc Besson's The Family (what a boring title), previously Malavita, starring Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer as a mafia family relocated to France. The rest of the cast in this action comedy includes Dianna Agron & Joseph Perrino as their kids, plus Tommy Lee Jones, Ricardo Cordero and Jon Freda. This almost seems like Taken meets RED meets every other double-agent spy comedy from Hollywood in recent years, but it looks fun. I usually like everything Besson directs, even if it's more ridiculous French action. Enjoy!

Here's the first official trailer for Luc Besson's The Family, originally from Yahoo:

The darkly comedic action film The Family is about the Manzonis, a notorious mafia family relocated to Normandy, France under the witness protection program. While they do their best to fit in, old habits die hard and they soon find themselves handling things the "family" way. Relativity's The Family, formerly known as Malavita, is directed by French filmmaker Luc Besson (La Femme Nikita, Leon: The Professional, The Fifth Element, Angel-A, Arthur and the Invisibles, The Lady) from a script co-written by Besson and Michael Caleo, based on Tonino Benacquista's novel. Co-produced by Relativity Media and Europa Corp, The Family will be released in US theaters starting September 20th this fall. See the trailer. Interested?

    Its a gangster flick, Alex. I guess i can see where your coming from with all the explosives and crap... but all the beatings look straight up from a gangster movie. I say mor like RED and Sopranos (If Tony squealed, and entered witness relocation). Taken i dont see to much of in this, except for BOOMs

    What is that song playing in the trailer?

        Sounds more like Muse.

      Elbow "The Seldom Seen Kid" and "Feeling Good"
  • What a weird story.
    • Dude Duden
      What a weird reaction. Good weird or bad weird?
      • I just found it a little strange, that the whole family were trained in hand to hand combat and were able to create improvised explosives on the fly. The mafia are a bunch of fat bullies, not Navy Seals. :-) I think it will be funny, but I just found the trailer a little weird.

          go watch "kill the irishman" and tell me the mob doesn't understand explosives.
          • I'm sure they can blow stuff up, just not usually the wife and kids at it too, but maybe I'm wrong, maybe there are multi-tasking witness protected ninja mafia folks out there. I've heard that 'Kill the Irishman' is good, I just watched the trailer and looks like some super plastic Paddy action. Though to be fair, the mob seems pretty rubbish at actually blowing him up from the trailer.

    how do think this resembles "taken"?
    Great mix of humor and action.
  • Linkfx
    Odd choice for him to direct it
  • MisterSix
    More like Lilyhammer meets Married… with Children.
  • R81
    wow this looks badass and fun, I'm actually interested. Must see for me.
  • Nielsen700
    Looks OK.
  • Jon Odishaw
    Luc Besson the producer of taken? How about the director of such masterpieces as Leon and The Fifth Element.

    Anyone spot David Belle pulling out some blades ?
  • Terry Craig
    I'm willing to bet that some wealthy teenager, whose favorite film is GoodFellas, with Hollywood connections wrote this film.
    • Dude Duden
      I'm willing to take that bet. Look it up on imdb. I win. Give me your moneeeey.
      • Dude Duden
        All kidding aside. Who cares if the plot is a bit childish. Its a kick ass cast in a movie with a kick ass director where no one is taking themselves seriously... Just that shot where Tommy Lee Jones is pouting makes me wanna see this movie. Think about it. Tommy Lee Jones pouting!
