The first trailer for Robert De Niro's action-comedy "The Family" has arrived.

De Niro goes back to his mafia-movie roots in this film, playing an ex-mobster who is relocated to Normandy, France, under the witness protection program after snitching on his mafia pals. There, he and his family have some trouble adjusting to their new home.

Michelle Pheiffer stars as De Niro's wife, and Dianna Agron ("Glee") and John D'Leo play their kids. Tommy Lee Jones plays a CIA agent tasked with keeping the family safe and in line.

Based on the Tonino Benacquista book "Badfellas," directed by Luc Besson and executive produced by Martin Scorsese, "The Family" is scheduled for release on Sept. 20.
