"One of the most talked about hits of the summer, New Line Cinema’s We’re the Millers has surpassed $100 million at the U.S. box office, it was announced recently by Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures. The movie crossed the $100 million mark on Friday, August 30, and is still climbing.
"The film has a staggered release pattern internationally, and the performance in the few early markets has been quite strong. Cumulative international box office is an estimated $33 million, with many territories yet to release, including such key markets as France, Italy, Spain, Mexico, Brazil and the Philippines where it is scheduled to open on Wednesday, September 18.
"In making the announcement, Fellman stated, "'We’re the Millers' fake family is a genuine hit, and their hilarious road trip, combined with strong word of mouth, have been driving audiences to theaters across America since its release. We expect this incredibly funny cast, led by Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis, to continue providing moviegoers with big laughs in the weeks to come.”
"From New Line Cinema comes the action comedy We’re the Millers, starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis. The film is directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber.
"In the film, David Clark (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), as well as 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.
"The film also stars Emma Roberts, Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn, Will Poulter and Ed Helms.
"A New Line Cinema Presentation, We’re the Millers is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
