Jason Sudeikis Smuggles Drugs In First Trailer For ‘We’re The Millers’


You know what family roadtrip movies have been missing? Fake families and drug deals.

The debut trailer for Rawson Thurber’s We’re The Millers has found its way online with a story that may actually be a first of its kind. Jason Sudeikis stars as a low-rent drug dealer who, after being told he must complete a mission from a drug lord, recruits a band of misfits to pretend to be his family for a wild roadtrip to the heart of Mexico. Jennifer Aniston, Will Poulter, and Emma Roberts round out the family, with Ed Helms and Nick Offerman making appearances as well.

Thinking back, I cannot think of another movie with a plot quite like We’re The Millers. The first trailer has all the makings of a run away laugh riot, but it also appears to give away a number of major plot points. You can view the red band trailer, as well as the slightly less graphic family-friendly cut, at the end of this post.

We’re The Millers opens nationwide August 9.

Synopsis: 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.
