Vacation Sequel Trailer

"I've never even heard of the original Vacation…" Back to Walley World they go! Warner Bros has finally debuted the first official trailer, thankfully a red band to show you how vulgar this R-rated sequel is, for the raunchy comedy Vacation. From writers-turned-directors John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein, this continuation of National Lampoon's Vacation series picks up with Ed Helms as Rusty Griswold when he's older, now with his own family, taking a return trip vacation to Walley World just like he did when he was a kid. Oh boy. I wish there was more footage in this, but it still looks like fun and I love the connection to the original throughout. Christina Applegate, Chris Hemsworth, Leslie Mann, Regina Hall also star.

Here's the first red band trailer for Warner Bros' new Vacation, direct from Comedy Central:

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. Warner Bros will open Vacation on July 31st.

    I don't like Ed Helms. I can't tell if it's because I can't stand his acting or his teeth, both of them bother me though.
  • CaptainOrgasma
    A fool and his money...
  • Well I feel like they're taking a page right out of 21/22 Jump Street's playbook. The meta-tongue-in-cheek stuff will attract the oldies.

      Yeesh. Not so sure. (source: "oldie")

    A big load of dumb fun.....I'm in.
  • I didn't know there will be a sequel.
  • Brandon Moss
    I don't know, the first had the genius of Harold Ramis. Christmas Vacation had the holiday-John-Hughes thing. This? Another thing, does the same person edit all the trailers for comedy films? They are near identical. Same awful music and dancing too, I swear If it's not "Ridin' Dirty" it's Lil John or Sir Mix-a-lot. Can we just stop it already? Any laughs I could possibly have are immediately gone when I hear the same awful music in every trailer.

    Nothing against Ed Helms, I totally dig his shtick, but Anthony Michael Hall would have been a solid choice as the original returning Rusty.....oh well.
    • Erockian
      Maybe he put his dignity in front of a paycheck.
  • Jason Scarpelli
    The first two words in the article's title should be changed to "Must not watch". This is friggin dumb as shit.
  • backwardsprogress
    Oh who cares.... I'm in!
  • Nielsen700
    Looks fun enough. Big fan of the original and Christmas Vacation.
    Goofy. Helmsian. Glad to see they are not road tripping with grandpa.
  • Miguel Garay Boszeta
    It looks OK.
  • Sempai
    "MUST WATCH"??? this looks terrible.
  • grimjob
    I'm sure it'll do its job and be good for some laughs. But you know its impossible to touch the original, so low expectations can actually help this flick.
  • Mr Chatterbox
  • Adam
    This looks hilarious!
  • Trey
    looks funny....
  • ff
    Looks dumb. Raunchy sex jokes done not = genuine comedy.
  • shiboleth
    Ok, the end of the trailer was funny, but, really, wtf?
  • Ty Webb
    I didnt have high hopes for it and this stays right in line with that.
  • Erockian
    Wow. So terrible. They may as well spend the entire movie reading definitions straight out of UrbanDictionary. And seriously, who didn't know the truck was coming?! Every setup was predictable. "Awkward comedy" is so easy. And so tired.
