New Line Cinema has released a red-band trailer for We’re The Millers, featuring a goofy introduction by the film’s stars Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston. The film is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber whose previous work includes Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story and the hilarious “Terry Tate, Office Linebacker” commercials.
This new trailer suggests the film is much more vulgar than the previous had made it out to be. With humour centred around plenty of swollen testicle jokes, We’re The Millers feels more like an R-Rated version of National Lampoon’s Vacation.
The film also stars Will Poulter and Emma Roberts as the hired offspring to fill out Sudeikis’ fake family, as well as Ed Helms as a drug dealing king pin, with Kathryn Hahn and Nick Offerman as a do-gooder family with a kinky side.
We’re The Millers opens August 9th.
From New Line Cinema comes the action comedy “We’re The Millers,” starring Jennifer Aniston (“Horrible Bosses”) and Jason Sudeikis (“The Campaign”). The film is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (“Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story”).
David Burke (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 (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.
Thurber directs “We’re The Millers” from a screenplay by Bob Fisher & Steve Faber (“Wedding Crashers”) and Sean Anders & John Morris (“Hot Tub Time Machine”), story by Bob Fisher & Steve Faber. The film also stars Emma Roberts (“The Art of Getting By”), Nick Offerman (“21 Jump Street”), Kathryn Hahn (“The Dictator”), Will Poulter (“The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader”) and Ed Helms (the “Hangover” films).
