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, »
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!”

As someone who still doesn’t really see the point in a Vacation reboot, I can at least acknowledge that the first red-band trailer for Warner Bros.’ new take on the classic comedy seems to have its head in the right place.
After Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms), now a father, announces his plans to take his family on a cross-country road trip back to Walley World, his wife (Christina Applegate) wryly asks, “So you want to redo your vacation from 30 years ago?” He promises, “This time it will be totally different.” Quips son James (Skyler Gisondo): “I’ve never even heard of the original vacation.” Rusty assures him,”Doesn’t matter, the new vacation will stand on its own, Ok?”

"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, »

Some good news for a great film out of the Sundance Film Festival. Director Jim Strouse, who last played Sundance with the films The Winning Season and Grace Is Gone, returned this year with a film called People, Places, Things starring Jemaine Clement as a graphic artist/illustrator. The charming film was quite enjoyable, I would actually recommend it and I hope people get a chance to see it, a very amusing little romantic comedy. Deadline is reporting that up-and-coming distributor The Film Arcade has picked up People, Places, Things for a Us release, sometime this summer. The indie distributor is also releasing Sundance faves A.C.O.D., Song One, The Voices, They Came Together and Dinosaur 13. So keep an eye out. People, Places, Things stars Jemaine Clement along with Stephanie Allynne, Regina Hall, Jessica Williams, Derrick Arthur and Celia Au. I saw the film at Sundance and enjoyed it quite a bit, »
