Here’s a new red band trailer for Luc Besson‘s mafia action-comedy,The Family (a.k.a. Malavita). Everybody loves Robert De Niro to move back in the world of gangsters. But this is not quite in the way that many of us were most hoping for.
Beside the master of the art of dropping f-bombs, Michelle Pfeiffer in another comedy role is a very welcome.
The Family comes to theaters September 13th, 2013 and also stars Tommy Lee Jones, Dianna Agron, Ricardo Cordero, Dominic Chianese, Domenick Lombardozzi and Vincent Pastore.
The script is adapted by Besson and Michael Caleo from the book ‘Badfellas’ authored by Tonino Benacquista. The film revolves around a mob family who are taken into witness protection in Normandy while struggles to conceal its true identity even in the idyllic rural setting.
Despite a comedy, the flick is quite a violent, which accounts for the fact that this is a red band trailer, so don’t watch it if you’re young and impressionable.
A mafia boss and his family are relocated to a sleepy town in France under the witness protection program after snitching on the mob. Despite the best efforts of CIA Agent Stansfield (Tommy Lee Jones) to keep them in line, Fred Manzoni (Robert De Niro), his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer) and their children Belle (Dianna Agron) and Warren (John D’Leo) can’t help but revert to old habits and blow their cover by handling their problems the “family” way, enabling their former mafia cronies to track them down. Chaos ensues as old scores are settled in the unlikeliest of settings in this darkly funny film by Luc Besson (Taken, Transporter).
