The new Red Band Trailer is out for the reboot of National Lampoon’s Vacation. In the new film, Ed Helms plays the latest “Rusty.” He and his wife, played by Christina Applegate decide to take their kids (and Rusty’s parents who are still played by Chevy Chase and Bevery D’Angelo) to Wally World.
From the trailer, it looks like this movie is more concerned with trying to one-up it’s predecessor as opposed to trying to be a good movie on it’s own merit. Then again, who doesn’t love a good rim job joke.
The next generation of Griswolds is at it again. New Line Cinema’s “Vacation,” starring Ed Helms (“The Hangover” films) and Christina Applegate (the “Anchorman” films), takes the family on the road for another ill-fated adventure. The film marks Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley’s directorial debut.
Following in his father’s footsteps and hoping for some much-needed family bonding, a grown-up Rusty Griswold (Helms) surprises his wife, Debbie (Applegate), and their two sons with a cross-country trip back to America’s “favorite family fun park,” Walley World.
Rounding out the cast are Leslie Mann (“The Other Woman”) as Rusty’s sister, Audrey; Chris Hemsworth (the “Thor” films) in the role of Stone Crandall, Rusty’s irritatingly successful brother-in-law; and Skyler Gisondo (“Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb,” “Hard Sell”) and Steele Stebbins (“A Haunted House 2”), who play Rusty’s sons, James and Kevin. Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo reprise their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold from the classic “Vacation” comedies.
