Warner Bros. has released the first This Is Where I Leave You trailer for director Shawn Levy’s (Real Steel) adaptation of the Jonathan Tropper novel. The story revolves around a dysfunctional family that is forced to come together and sit shiva when their father dies, opening old wounds and reigniting passions that have long-since been repressed. This movie throws a lot of talented actors together, and it looks like they’re playing off each other wonderfully. I was smiling throughout this trailer, and I’m glad that there appears to be so much chemistry among this amazing cast.
Hit the jump to watch the This Is Where I Leave You trailer. The film stars Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Corey Stoll, Jane Fonda, Rose Byrne, Kathryn Hahn, Connie Britton, Ben Schwartz, Timothy Olyphant, Aaron Lazar, Debra Monk, Abigail Spencer, and Dax Shepard. This Is Where I Leave You opens on September 12th.

Here’s the official synopsis for This Is Where I Leave You:
When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.
