Vacation

When we featured our list of the 20 Most Anticipated Films of 2015, one of the comedies on the list was the reboot of the 1983 classic comedy National Lampoon's Vacation. Now the film is simply called Vacation, but there are still solid ties to the original franchise with Ed Helms leading the film as a grown up Rusty Griswald, getting ready to take his own family out on a vacation just like his father (Chevy Chase) and mother (Beverly D'Angelo) did when he was a kid. The two original stars of the four-film comedy franchise reprise their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold, and now we have an official first look at the film.

Here's the first photo from John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein's Vacation (via USA Today):

Vacation is written and directed by John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein, the writers of Horrible Bosses and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, making their directorial debut. In the follow-up to the original comedy franchise from National Lampoon, this new installment finds a grown up Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) planning a road trip to Walley World in order to spice things up with his wife (Christina Applegate) and reconnect with his sons. Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo return as Clark & Ellen Griswold and Chris Hemsworth and Leslie Mann also star in the film which Warner Bros. releases on July 31st.
