Robert De Niro is getting back in the family, and no, we don't mean another 'Fockers' movie. Rather, he's getting back in the organized family way, once again entering the game of legitimate business dealings, and starring in the latest from Luc Besson, "The Family" (which you probably knew about under it's previous title "Malavita"). For both director and star, they've had a patchy last few years, with both highlights ("Silver Linings Playbook" and "Stone" for De Niro) and lowlights (wait, what was the last good movie Besson directed?). Can they form a power pairing here?

Well, the first trailer is here for you to find out. Michelle Pfeiffer, Tommy Lee Jones and Dianna Agron co-star in the movie that follows a mafia boss and his family how are relocated to a sleepy town in France under the witness protection program after snitching on the mob. But old habits die hard, and it isn't long before Fred Manzoni (De Niro), his wife Maggie (Pfeiffer) and their children Belle (Dianna Agron) and Warren (John D’Leo) are back to their criminal ways, and CIA Agent Stansfield (Jones) has to try and keep them in line. Ha, ha?

Are Besson and De Niro bringing the juice or is this another toss away for both of them? Let us know your thoughts below. "The Family" gets together on September 20th.

    Can somebody please tell me the song at the end of the trailer. I think it's radiohead. But it'd take so long to listen to every song by them

    @bobby, i think you are referring to the song: "feeling good" by Muse

    Sunshine In a bag - gorillaz

    If you are referring to the "ain't happy, I'm feelin' glad.......," song, it was bugging me too. ended up googling the lyrics. Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood. Turns out I have the CD, just been too long since I've listened to it. As for the movie, meh....I'll wait for redbox......maybe.

    This looks awesome, I love Besson's movies, the guy is always so funny & way more talented than what people think.

    Finally a movie where the women kickass too. Executive producer Scorcese had me intrigued. I'll watch this.

    Guess I'm the one person who actually thinks this looks great.

  • Mustang55 | June 5, 2013 7:59 AMReply

    So... it's the live-action, criminal version of The Incredibles?

  • G.T.O. | June 5, 2013 2:50 AMReply

    Terrible

  • PLuke6 | June 5, 2013 8:51 AM

    Really? I think it looks great and fun. I can't wait to see it honestly.

  • Susie | June 4, 2013 11:11 PMReply

    Looking forward to seeing Michelle Pfeiffer.

    Sadly, this looks awful.

    "From executive producer Martin Scorcese".... I feel like I saw most of the movie in the trailer but I'm intrigued.

  • Real | June 4, 2013 7:53 PMReply

    Will watch for Pfeiffer, Deniro and Jones but verrrry sneaky using the Stones music from the "Casino" trailer to start this off!

  • CB | June 4, 2013 7:32 PMReply
