The roof blows off the Weston family house in the first poster for "August: Osage County," the star-studded motion picture filmed in Oklahoma and opening in November.

"Misery Loves Family," reads the poster tagline for the film based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Tulsa native Tracy Letts. The roof teeters upward from the left side of the house as the cast's names - all 12 principal players, with Meryl Streep followed by Julia Roberts at the top - explode out of this house full of dysfunctional family members.

Expectations for the Weinstein Company movie are sky-high as well - "August: Osage County" has already been anointed as an awards- season favorite.
