If I got anything from the first trailer for the Vacation reboot/sequel, it’s exactly that, it’s a reboot/sequel. It’s very much trying to continue and recreate the original movies, but also make a name for itself. I for one walked away from the first trailer not disappointed, but a little hesitant. I wasn’t surprised that I didn’t like it, but I was really hoping I would.
Now a new trailer has been released and although I’m still pretty tentative, I like what I saw in the latest trailer. I’m still not sold on someone like Ed Helms leading this new generation Vacation, but I really like what I see from the supporting cast, specifically Chris Hemsworth, who I think is going to steal the movie, and Steele Stebbins (the younger brother).
Take a look for yourself:
Here’s the new teaser poster, too:
Vacation opens in theaters on July 29th, 2015. Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein starring Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Leslie Mann, Chris Hemsworth, Skyler Gisondo, Steele Stebbins, Beverly D’Angelo, and Chevy Chase.
