Red Band We're The Millers Trailer Drives Up
Jason Sudeikis' drug smuggler needs a fake family...

When Empire attended CinemaCon last month, one of the films that struck our fancy, based on an extended trailer, was Dodgeball director Rawson Marshall Thurber’s new comedy We’re The Millers. Now a version of that trailer is online via Warners’ YouTube account for you all to watch. Warning: it’s a Red Band promo, so expect swearing and gross-out gags… 

We’re The Millers finds small-scale pot dealer David Burke (Sudeikis) getting into a spot of bother when Ed Helms' sleazy kingpin offers him a potentially lucrative job: smuggle a batch of pot across the border from Mexico back into the US and Burke will score $100,000.

There’s a hitch, however. If he goes across alone, he’ll look suspicious. So Burke nabs an RV and starts to recruit a fake family to hide the fact that he’ll be transporting several kilos of marijuana. Neighbourhood no-good nerd Kenny (Will Poulter) will be his son; crafty Casey (Emma Roberts) his daughter and stripper Rose (Jennifer Aniston) is the woman he asks to be his fake wife.

When they reach Mexico, they discover the haul is significantly bigger than they thought; and that’s just the start of their problems, which include randy fellow travellers (Nick Offerman and Kathryn Hahn on good form) and a nasty tarantula bite that leaves Kenny with some trouble in the trouser department.

While there are moments that might make you roll your eyes – of course Aniston’s stripper history is going to come into play at some point – there are enough genuine chuckles to have us anticipating this one. It’ll find its way into cinemas on August 23.
