Who would have thought after seven years Diary of a Wimpy Kid could still be going strong and reaching out to younger audiences all over the world? With the fourth sequel in the seven-year run set to be released on the 20th of May a new trailer for Diary of the Wimpy Kid The Long Haul has arrived.
In the fourth sequel, we have a brand new generation of wimps lead by the Zachary Gordon lookalike Jason Drucker, who plays Greg, venturing off on a problematic road trip with his friends and family were nothing but trouble looms on the horizon. From feeding a lone seagull from the car roof to winning a pig who quite clearly has intestinal issues and even the predictable embarrassing parents moment of singing the Spice Girls Wannabe in the car. From the looks of the trailer, we have seen this all before, »

20th Century Fox has released a new trailer for Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul! Based on the record-breaking book series by Jeff Kinney, a family road trip goes hilariously off course, thanks to Greg's newest scheme to (finally!) become famous. Check out the latest trailer below and get ready for Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul to hit theaters May 19th!
This new trailer starts off the exact same way as the first trailer, which arrived in earlier February. But Wimp fans, don't be so quick to turn away. There is a ton of new footage here and plenty of fresh jokes as a squad of seagulls attack the Heffley family en route to grandma's house.

20th Century Fox has debuted the first teaser trailer and poster for Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, which is set to hit theaters on May 19. This trailer pokes some fun at the superhero genre, in its own unique way, teasing that none of the caped crusaders, galactic guardians or amazing web slingers over the past decade dared to be "wimpy" like the title character Greg, portrayed by Jason Drucker. This trailer gives fans a better look at the brand new cast that has been assembled for this fourth Wimpy Kid movie.
Back in November, 20th Century Fox unveiled a preview that gave fans a behind-the-scenes sneak peek at the new cast members, who replace all of the stars from the first three Wimpy Kid movies. Jason Drucker replaces Zachary Gordon as Greg, with Charlie Wright replacing Devon Bostick as his older brother Rodrick and Owen Asztalos replacing Robert Capron as Rowley. »
One of those conspicuously talented comics who nonetheless can be tricky to cast, Jack Black has rather surprisingly found some of his best big-screen roles portraying liberally dramatized versions of real people, à la “School of Rock” and “Bernie.” (No, “Drunk History” doesn’t count.) Featuring Black’s most eccentric true-life character yet, “The Polka King” amply plays to its star’s strengths, yielding a hilariously tough-to-believe biopic that should easily prove one of the bigger commercial breakouts of Sundance’s 2017 edition.
Co-directors Maya Forbes and Wallace Wolodarsky’s affectionately farcical comedy is based on a loopy 2009 documentary about Jan Lewan, a colorful Polish émigré turned “Polka King of Pennsylvania” turned convicted Ponzi-scheme felon. Perfectly cast down the line, this bizarre tale of the American Dream gone kitschily awry introduces Black’s Jan in 1990, when he’d be well on his way to realizing that dream, if only the finances would cooperate. »
