Warner Bros.’ “American Sniper,” the controversial war drama from Clint Eastwood that grossed nearly $350 million in U.S. theaters, easily topped the national home video sales charts its first week in stores, snagging the No. 1 spot on both Nielsen VideoScan’s overall disc sales chart and dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart for the week ending May 24.
In its third week of release, the film – based on the sexually charged novel of seduction and dominance – sold just 13% as many units as “Sniper.”
Anchor Bay’s family-friendly “Paddington” repeated at No. 3, also on both charts, while the No. 4 spot went to another new release: Paramount’s “Hot Tub Time Machine 2,” a raunchy ‘R’-rated comedy that took in just $12.3 million at the domestic box office. The 2010 original grossed more than $50 million and »

David Letterman stepped down as the host of the Late Show this week with an amazing all-star episode featuring everybody from Bill Murray to Tina Fey to the Foo Fighters. It was the end of an major chapter of pop culture history that began 33 years ago when NBC put him on following Johnny Carson.
The youtube channel The Hillywood Show has made a name for itself by recontextualising popular songs to double as homages to well-known tv shows, with costumes and sets to match, along with dances. They have previously done parodies of Doctor Who and The Walking Dead, repurposing “The Time Warp” and “Another One bites the Dust” respectively.
For their latest video, the duo behind the channel took on the CW series Supernatural, setting the storyline of the show’s just-ended tenth season to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”. In addition to getting a Chevy Impala much like the one driven in the series, the show tapped Osric Chau, who played Kevin Tran on the series and has appeared on previous Hillywood Show videos, to play Sam Winchester. In addition, the video managed to snag Rob Benedict, who played Chuck Shurley on Supernatural, to take on the role of Cain, with »

With his off-kilter sensibility (Stupid Pet Tricks?) and his penchant for the oddball (what other host runs across the stage in silhouette before starting a show, or strikes up a telephone relationship with a woman who works in an office across the street?), David Letterman has left everyone who enjoys latenight television in stitches. Now, he’s about to leave them in splinters.
When Letterman signs off CBS’ “Late Show”for the last time early Thursday morning, he will deprive TV of its last direct link to Johnny Carson and an era when just one, then two, hosts could dominate the period. The arrivals of Jimmy Kimmel at ABC, then Jimmy Fallon at NBC, and, soon, Stephen Colbert at CBS have given rise to talk of a third generation of late-night talent (if Carson, not Jack Paar or Steve Allen, is to be seen as the root of this particular »

The Griswolds go on the road, Tyler Perry's studio goes on the market, and NeNe Leakes goes off the rails in this week’s Atlanta News Roundup. Trailer for Atlanta-Filmed “Vacation” Remake Is Released The Griswolds are on the road again, though since Chevy Chase is now closer in age to Imogene Coca’s Aunt Edna, Ed Helms will be in the driver's seat.

Chase and “Vacation” wife Beverly D’Angelo cameo as Clark and Ellen Griswold, and Leslie Mann takes over the role of Cousin Audrey.

Just one day after the Vacation red band trailer debuted, Warner Bros. has released the official poster for the upcoming summer reboot. This one-sheet features Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) proudly showing off his love for the theme park Walley World, where he took his first ill-fated road trip with the entire Griswold clan in the 1983 classic Vacation. As we saw in yesterday's trailer, Rusty's family isn't exactly on board with his plan, but it will surely be one memorable Vacation.
The next generation of Griswolds is at it again-and on the road for another ill-fated adventure. Following in his father's footsteps and hoping for some much-needed family bonding, a grown-up Rusty Griswold surprises his wife, Debbie (Christina Applegate), and their two sons with a cross- country trip back to America's "favorite family fun park," Walley World. The cast includes Leslie Mann as Rusty's sister Audrey, Skyler Gisondo and Steele Stebbins as Rusty and Debbie's sons, »
Major, serious peen alert! Chris Hemsworth’s probably — okay, obviously — fake penis in the new Vacation trailer has taken over the Internet and you need to take a minute with the Nsfw-moment. The trailer — which brings National Lampoon’s Vacation back to life — features everyone from Chevy Chase to Leslie Mann and Christina Applegate, but it’s Hemsworth’s manhood that really matters. In fact, you could probably just fast-forward the trailer — which, of course, offers a promising Walley World return to the original 1983 classic — [...] »
Ed Helms and Christina Applegate and Chris Hemsworth pick up where Chevy Chase left off in a new “red band” trailer for a reboot of “Vacation,” the comedy road-trip movies Chase made in the 1980s, with John Candy, Christie Brinkley and Randy Quaid. The latest movie includes a whole new cast as a new generation of Griswolds, find themselves in all kinds of predicaments. Helms plays Rusty, who was a child in the original National Lampoon movies. Like his dad, he’s determined to take the wife and kids to Walley World. [...] »
Embedded within the flurry of renewals and new series orders issued by ABC on Thursday night was the non-announcement that the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff had died on the vine.

By the looks of it the Griswolds are at it again on holiday road but it’s Rusty Griswold and family heading to Walley World this time in the red band trailer for Vacation just released by Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema.
Written and directed this time around by Horrible Bosses and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 duo John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein based on the characters of John Hughes, the rebooted Griswold comedy sees Ed Helms as Rusty Griswold take his wife Debbie (Christina Applegate) and their two sons James (Skyler Gisondo) and Kevin (Steele Stebbins) on a cross-country road trip to America’s ‘favourite family fun park’ Walley World.
And just like Rusty’s childhood adventure, things don’t go quite as planned.

Ed Helms sets the record straight in the new red band trailer for Vacation, in which he stars as a grown-up version of Rusty Griswold who's dragging his family back to the site of one of his best childhood memories: Walley World. "I've never even heard of the original vacation," Rusty's teenage son says. "Doesn't matter," the father replies. "The new vacation will stand on its own."
While the clip showcases the new Vacation's commitment to the original's national lampoonery, it's also packed with plenty of gags straight out »

Holiday Road here we come again.
Vacation stars Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Lesley Mann and Chris Hemsworth are the next generation of Griswolds who set off on a good old family road trip to Walley World in the new red-band trailer.
The next generation of Griswolds is at it again. New Line Cinema’s Vacation starring Ed Helms (“The Hangover” films) and Christina Applegate (the “Anchorman” films), takes the family on the road for another ill-fated adventure. The film marks Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley’s directorial debut.
Following in his father’s footsteps and hoping for some much-needed family bonding, a grown-up Rusty Griswold (Helms) surprises his wife, Debbie (Applegate), and their two sons with a cross-country trip back to America’s “favorite family fun park,” Walley World.

The red band trailer for Warner Bros.’ “Vacation” has hit the web, and writer-directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein pay due homage to the Chevy Chase original with a cavalcade of meta references and in-jokes, opening the trailer with a nostalgic trip down memory lane courtesy of footage from the 1983 comedy.
The sequel stars Ed Helms as Rusty Griswold — son of Chase’s Clark and Beverly D’Angelo’s Ellen — who now has his own family to drag on an ill-conceived vacation to Walley World: wife Debbie (Christina Applegate), and two sons, James (Skyler Gisondo) and Kevin (Steele Stebbins).
“I’ve never even heard of the original vacation,” scoffs older son Kevin, to which Rusty retorts, “Doesn’t matter, the new vacation will stand on its own!”

New Line just released a red band trailer for Vacation, the reboot of the 1983 comedy that Harold Ramis directed from a John Hughes script. That’s a tall order to top but an opportunity to rediscover the Griswolds and the Walley World theme park. How does Ed Helms compare to Chevy Chase and Christina Applegate to Beverly D’Angelo? This one was written and directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, and the movie must be pretty good because it put those guys… »
It's time to go back to Wally World, people. Pictures of the Vacation reboot sparked our interest in the movie, and now an Nsfw trailer has arrived. Ed Helms plays a grown-up Rusty Griswold, who decides to take his family (including his wife, played by Christina Applegate) on the same road trip he went on as a kid. "I've never even heard of the original vacation," complains his kid. "Doesn't matter," Rusty responds. "The new vacation will stand on its own." Get it? It's so meta! There are the typical hijinks included, but the best part is that Audrey (Leslie Mann) is now married to Thor, aka Chris Hemsworth. He's definitely shirtless, and he definitely shows off his man parts to Rusty and Debbie. Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo make appearances as their original characters, and Charlie Day, Nick Kroll, and Keegan-Michael Key are just some of the members of the impressive cast. »
Harold Ramis, John Hughes and Chevy Chase helped take the family road-trip comedy and, with National Lampoon’s Vacation, turned it into an R-rated, ’80s institution that carried on with three additional sequels. As the trend of updating old characters and checking in on them several years later continues, Ed Helms is now a grown Rusty Griswold, complete with his own dysfunctional family. He and Christina Applegate lead the latest R-rated installment, Vacation, arriving this summer.
And while the original film was plenty dark (a troublesome dog is dragged for miles tethered to a rear bumper, the Griswold grandmother dies while sitting in the backseat, etc.), this first red-band trailer for Vacation shows just how much further writers and directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (Horrible Bosses screenwriters) are willing to go. Here’s the official synopsis:

Warning: This trailer contains explicit language and a Nsfw shot of Chris Hemsworth's Big wang! Warner Bros. released the first red-band trailer for "Vacation," the reboot/sequel to National Lampoon's classic 1983 comedy. The highly-anticipated flick stars Ed Helms as a grown-up Rusty Griswold, who opts to redo his childhood vacation to Walley World with his own family. Christina Applegate plays his wife, while Leslie Mann fills the role of sister Audrey. But, don't worry, "Vacation" veterans Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo reprise their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold. In true Griswold form, the family trip is filled with not-so-family-friendly hiccips, including a dip in a sewage pond, conversations about glory holes and a close encounter with Hemsworth's abs and Thor's huge, uh, hammer. You don't want to miss the trailer above -- just make sure your boss isn't watching! "Vacation" opens in theaters on July 31st. Read »
