Relativity Media has released the first trailer for director Luc Besson’s (The Fifth Element) action comedy The Family (previously known as Malavita).  At first it looks like a remake of My Blue Heaven (an underrated film), but the movie shows it has more to offer.  The movie manages to get the whole family in on the dark humor as they bring their own brand of American mafia justice to the French countryside.  Besson’s signature blend of action and quirky comedy are on display, so for fans of his previous films – and films like Red, True Lies and The Whole Nine Yards, which seem to have a similar vibe – The Family should be on your radar.

The film stars Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Tommy Lee Jones,Dianna Agron (Glee), and John D’Leo (Wanderlust).  The Family opens on September 20th.

Official synopsis for The Family:

The darkly comedic action film The Family is the story of the Manzonis, a notorious mafia family who gets 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.
