Vacation

If you've been skeptical about Warner Bros. Pictures' reboot of the classic comedy Vacation, this news might change your tune. The studio is placing a lot of confidence in the comedy starring Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Leslie Mann and Chris Hemsworth because THR reports they've just bumped up the film from its original release date in October to a much better opening on July 31st this summer instead. That should make for some decent counter programming for anyone who isn't interested in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, which was also bumped up from its original Christmas Day release.

Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo are also back as Clark and Ellen Griswold, but this time it's Helms taking his own family on vacation as a grown up Rusty Griswold. Applegate plays his wife, with Mann playing his sister Audrey, and Hemsworth playing the latter's husband. This comedy reboot was one of my most anticipated films of 2015, and I'm happy to hear that we'll get to see it sooner, and that the studio has confidence enough to give it a summer release. The film is directed by Horrible Bosses writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, making their feature directorial debut.

I know this could be said for %98 of all reboots/remake, but..... what an unnecessary reboot !!!

It's a sequel, not a reboot. I think it's a logical place to take the franchise as well.

The better have smuggled Randy Quaid back into the US to film some scenes as Cousin Eddie. Otherwise, I'm not interested.

Going into this with low expectations will suredly make this film good.

How is a film a reboot if characters from the first film are adults and their parents are older. Wouldn't that constitute as a sequel?
