The Family Fang Trailer

"We can't fix them, we can only fix ourselves." Starz Digital Media has debuted a trailer for the indie drama The Family Fang, directed by actor Jason Bateman, who also stars in the film which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. Nicole Kidman also stars with Bateman as brother & sister who go home looking for their prankster parents, played by Christopher Walken & Maryann Plunkett. The cast includes Marin Ireland, Josh Pais, Michael Chernus and others. This looks interesting, not what you'll be expecting at first, and potentially like it may be worth seeing if you're wondering what's really happening.

Here's the first official trailer for Jason Bateman's The Family Fang, originally from

The Family Fang Poster

Jason Bateman and Nicole Kidman are a brother-and-sister duo who return to their family home but can't seem to figure out if their eccentric parents have faked their deaths. The Family Fang is directed by actor-turned-filmmaker Jason Bateman, who also directed Bad Words previously. The screenplay was adapted by playwright David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole), based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name by author Kevin Wilson. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and is also playing at the Tribeca Film Festival this year. Starz Digital Media will release Jason Bateman's The Family Fang in select theaters + on VOD starting April 29th, 2016 this spring. Anyone interested in seeing this?

    The concept has potential, but the whole typical indie style with the pop-rock and whatnot makes it seem to fall flat.
      Hopefully that tone was just the trailer and not the entire movie.

        Exactly what I was thinking.
    Walken is always a good time, even in stuff that is not so good. I am looking forward to see what Bateman can do in a directing/starring capacity.
  • Maybe the kids will outrank the parents and start being an incestuous couple and win an art prize at the end and everybody will high five?

      You need Jesus in your life, man.
      • I was into the Jesus when I was a kid, the priest who did my confirmation was arrested for raping two men who were training to be priests, apparently he was headed for some vatican stardom before that. My auntie had her first child taken from her by the local priest in Ireland, with full co-operation of the family, years later it was discovered that the priests were some of the worst child abusers in Irish history, who had also murdered children and buried them in the grounds of the home. Jesus can fuck off.

          Holy balls, Carpola. I was kidding... In Jesus defense though, it was the priests that were doing all the raping and murdering and being all around dicks. Not Jesus.
          • Any God that's down for kids getting raped to death isn't worth the limited time we have on this planet. That goes for any other bearded sky god too. :-)

    This looks nice. It takes guts to compare the movie to The Royal Tenenbaums though, that movie is GOLD!
  • David Diaz
    This looks brilliant and heartwarming. Definitely explores an odd family dynamic.

    Yeah, I'm sold. It's Walken, of course. I hope the whole idea is his and he will be the last man laughing ...
