"We're the Millers" (R)
Jason Sudeikis is a small-time drug dealer who gets his stash stolen. His supplier, Ed Helms, tells him that in order to set things right, he'll have to personally smuggle their latest shipment across the border from Mexico. Jason doesn't want to get caught so he gets a stripper, a runaway, and a horny virgin to pose as his family while he makes the trip. Jennifer Aniston is his stripper "wife", Emma Roberts is his runaway "daughter", and Will Poulter from the Narnia movie "Voyage of the Dawn Treader" is the kid posing as their son.
Matt Damon stars in this sci-fi movie that was written and directed by "District 9's" Neill Blomkamp.

Jodie Foster is in charge of Elysium's security and "District 9's" Sharlto Copley is her hired killer.
