Warner Bros has released the red band trailer for Vacation. The reboot sequel stars Ed Helms (The Hangover) as a grown up Rusty Griswold, who decides to take his family on a vacation to Wally World. Note that Vacation is not a complete reboot, but partially more of a sequel as Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo are reprising their roles from the original.
Writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses) are making their directorial debut. I thought they did an excellent job in the trailer at addressing how audiences may have their doubts on this whole idea. You’ll see what I mean when Helms is having a conversation with his son at the dinner table. There are certainly more laughs then I expected, especially from Thor. Overall, its a much better trailer than I expected, which is very good for a film trying to sell us on a Vacation reboot/sequel.
Christina Applegate plays Rusty’s wife, while Leslie Mann fills the role of sister Audrey. The film also stars Steele Stebbins, Skyler Gisondo, Nick Kroll, Charlie Day, Kaitlin Olson, Regina Hall, and Keegan-Michael Key.
Vacation hits theaters on July 31st
