First Look: New Photos Of 'We're The Millers' Starring Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis & Emma Roberts

It's an underrated little gem, but the director of "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story," starring Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller, is back. Truthfully, Rawson Marshall Thurber didn't really go anywhere, but 2008's indie “The Mysteries of Pittsburgh” wasn’t terribly well received. He's now back in studio comedy mode -- studio action comedy mode, to be specific -- with "We're The Millers." Starring Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts, Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn, Will Poulter, and Ed Helms, Thurber's latest has a bevy of strong comedic talent and centers on a veteran pot dealer (Sudeikis) who creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico.

It's an underrated little gem, but the director of "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story," starring Vince Vaughn and Ben Stiller, is back. Truthfully, Rawson Marshall Thurber didn't really go anywhere, but 2008's indie “The Mysteries of Pittsburgh” wasn’t terribly well received. He's now back in studio comedy mode -- studio action comedy mode, to be specific -- with "We're The Millers." Starring Jennifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts, Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn, Will Poulter, and Ed Helms, Thurber's latest has a bevy of strong comedic talent and centers on a veteran pot dealer (Sudeikis) who creates a fake family as part of his plan to move a huge shipment of weed into the U.S. from Mexico.

Here's the official synopsis.

David Burke (Jason Sudeikis) is a small-time pot dealer whose clientele includes chefs and soccer moms, but no kids—after all, he has his scruples. So what could go wrong? Plenty. Preferring to keep a low profile for obvious reasons, he learns the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished when he tries to help out some local teens and winds up getting jumped by a trio of gutter punks. Stealing his stash and his cash, they leave him in major debt to his supplier, Brad (Ed Helms). In order to wipe the slate clean—and maintain a clean bill of health—David must now become a big-time drug smuggler by bringing Brad's latest shipment in from Mexico. Twisting the arms of his neighbors, cynical stripper Rose (Jennifer Aniston) and wannabe customer Kenny (Will Poulter), and the tatted-and-pierced streetwise teen Casey (Emma Roberts), he devises a foolproof plan. One fake wife, two pretend kids and a huge, shiny RV later, the "Millers" are headed south of the border for a Fourth of July weekend that is sure to end with a bang.

Written by Bob Fisher & Steve Faber and Sean Anders & John Morris, two of the guys behind “Wedding Crashers” and the duo behind “Hot Tub Time Machine,” respectively, "We're The Millers" is due in theaters on August 9, 2013. Here's your first look at the film courtesy of Warner Bros.
