The previously-released trailer for Luc Besson’s The Family (still titled Malavita overseas) promised a dark, quirky action-comedy along the lines of Analyze This. This new international cut provides a decidedly more serious tone and almost comes across as a straight-up mob movie. The Family centers on the Manzoni family, who are relocated to France as part of the Witness Protection program, but soon find that old habits die hard.
Starring Robert De Niro, Tommy Lee Jones, Michelle Pfeiffer and Dianna Agron, The Family opens stateside on September 13th. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.

Here’s the 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.
