'The Family' trailer: Robert De Niro goes back to his movie-mafia roots

Well… sort of. Think of The Family as the mafia comedy that follows the events of Analyze This and Analyze That. (Analyze The Other Thing?)

De Niro plays an ex-mobster who snitches on his old pals and is then relocated to Normandy, France under the witness protection program. (Normandy is so much different than Lilyhammer.) The first half of the trailer plays like a classic fish-out-of-water tale with a violent twist: De Niro’s wife (Michelle Pfeiffer) gets back at some snooty Frenchmen by burning down their grocery store! His daughter (Dianna Agron, looking pleased to be free of the Glee-verse) uses her tennis racquet to beat up a guy who hit on her! His son (John D’Leo) is running some sort of mini-crime ring at the high school!

And then, in the second half, everything starts exploding. Director Luc Besson and executive producer Martin Scorsese really know how to give the people what they want.


Join The Family this fall — the movie hits theaters Sept. 20.
