The trailer for the new Robert De Niro mobster movie, The Family, has just been released.

Co-written and directed by Luc Besson, The Family stars De Niro as a mobster who must go into witness protection after his mafia family turn on him. Somehow his family find themselves relocated to Normandy in France where all efforts to hide out fail.

The black comedy, which is based on the novel Malavita by Tonino Benacquista, also stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Glee’s Dianna Agron and Tommy Lee Jones.

The film is set to open in the US in September and is expected to be on Irish cinema screens in November.
