In the dark action comedy The Family, a Mafia boss and his family are relocated to a sleepy town in France under the Witness Protection Program after snitching on the mob. Despite Agent Stansfield’s (Tommy Lee Jones) best efforts to keep them in line, Fred Manzoni (Robert De Niro), his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer) and their children, Belle (Dianna Agron) and Warren (John D’Leo), can’t help resorting to old habits by handling their problems the “family” way. Chaos ensues as their former Mafia cronies try to track them down and scores are settled in the unlikeliest of settings, in this subversively funny film by Luc Besson.

Nevermind that the first Insidious movie only made $13 million its opening weekend, or that critics declared the sequel, Insidious Chapter 2 to be a poor shadow of its predecessor, or that September is usually when the pre-holiday box office doldrums set in and hardly anything does very well on its opening weekend... set all of that aside. Somehow Insidious Chapter 2 defied its way to the top, banking a number one $41 million debut, earning the second highest September opening of all time and the third highest supernatural horror flick debut of all time.

Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert De Niro have been in two movies together and have been very 50/50 so far. In 2007 they starred together in Stardust, a wonderful, underrated live-action fairy tale that helped introduce American audiences to director Matthew Vaughn. The other, unfortunately, was last year's New Year's Eve, which was an absolutely dreadful piece of work that neither acclaimed star should have had anything to do with.
