We’ve all had awkward moments with our families, but Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda, Adam Driver and Corey Stoll are having a weeklong moment. The first trailer for the star-studded “This Is Where I Leave You” is here, starring all of the above as the Foxman clan (Fonda is the matriarch). After their father dies, the siblings are reunited for the funeral and the Jewish tradition of sitting shivah.
Based on the novel by Jonathan Tropper (who adapted his own work for the script), “This Is Where I Leave You” so far is a showcase for its cast’s comedic reality. Fey gets to punch a guy in the face, dubbing it a “princess cut,” and pinch Driver in the nipple. Fonda displays a pair of “bionic” chest accessories and gushes about her late husband’s nether regions, and so on and so forth.
Oh, and there’s a nice family listening session to a sexytimes marathon transmitted via baby monitor. Yowza.
Suffice to say, we can’t wait for this one.
“This Is Where I Leave You” hits theaters September 12. Kathryn Hahn, Ben Schwartz, Rose Byrne, Connie Britton and Dax Shepard also star.
