When it comes to the Blake family, old habits certainly die hard. In The Family, Robert De Niro plays Fred Blake, a mobster forced to move to France under witness protection with his family. But from the looks of the new international teaser trailer, Fred, his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer) and children Belle (Dianna Agron) and Warren (John D’Leo) have a hard time lying low. Poor Tommy Lee Jones has to try and pick up the pieces and keep this mobster family under wraps.
Though the premise might be a little familiar – My Blue Heaven? Lilyhammer? – the cast certainly has piqued my interest. Who wouldn’t want to see Tommy Lee Jones and a scruffy Robert De Niro face off? Or Michelle Pfeiffer blowing things up? Plus, I’m a bit curious to see if Glee’s Dianna Agron has the makings of a film star.
There’s plenty of violence, one-liners, and beautiful surroundings – clear marks of director Luc Besson’s handiwork. The Family (or Malavita, as it’s being called in Europe) is due in theaters on Sept. 13. Check out the trailer below:
