First Official Pictures from New National Lampoon's 'Vacation' Movie

14 April 2015 3:20 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Ed Helms is heading up the next generation of Griswolds in New Line's Vacation and the first two official pictures have just arrived featuring not only Helms as a grown-up Rusty Griswold, but Christina Applegate as his wife Debbie and their two sons -- Skyler Gisondo as James and Steele Stebbins as Kevin -- with plans for a cross-country trip back to America's "favorite family fun park," Walley World. As you can see from the pic above, Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo reprise their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold from the classic Vacation films and the cast also includes Leslie Mann as Rusty's sister, Audrey, and Chris Hemsworth as Stone Crandall, Rusty's irritatingly successful brother-in-law. Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley are making their directorial debuts on the flick, which is hitting theaters on July 31. Check out one more picture below. »

First Look At Vacation Features A Griswold Family Photo

14 April 2015 1:41 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The beloved National Lapoon's Vacation is getting the reboot treatment with the simply titled Vacation, which has the strange distinction of also being a sequel, and sees Ed Helms step into the shoes of Rusty Griswold as he takes a new generation of the accident prone clan on their own disaster filled trip to America's favorite family fun park, Walley World, before it closes forever. Warner Bros. have shared the first look at the continuing misadventures of the Griswolds, and it looks like Helms and Christina Applegate won't be the only Mr. and Mrs. Griswold, with Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo also making an appearance (as does the iconic Wagon Queen Family Truckster Station Wagon). The Vacation movies is a franchise a lot of people grew up with, so it will be interesting to see if this new version will live up to expectations. Released: 31st July (U.S)/ 13th November (Irl/U. »

All hail the return of the Griswold family!  In this first image from the upcoming reboot/sequel, simply titled Vacation (in theaters July 31), we get our first look at the grown-up Rusty (Ed Helms), his wife (Christina Applegate) and two sons alongside the Og Griswolds, Clark (Chevy Chase) and Ellen (Beverly D'Angelo).  But wait! There's another character there, too! You'll notice the family posing in front of a station wagon, which happens to look exactly like the old Wagon Queen Family Truckster from the original Vacation.  Remember this scene?   And this one?   Seeing as the new Vacation finds Rusty taking his own family on a cross-country trip to Walley World, we're guessing he's looking to recreate that original...

The Griswolds are at it again!  New Line Cinema just released the first photos of the cast from the new "Vacation" movie, which will follow the next generation of the Griswold family.  Ed Helms plays the now grown-up son of Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase), Rusty Griswold, while Christina Applegate joins the pack as Rusty's wife, Debbie Griswold.  This time around, Rusty and his family will find themselves on another family vacation gone awry, as they take to the road for some "much-needed family bonding" time to visit Walley World. Yep, Walley World is back!  The movie boasts a pretty impressive cast too -- Leslie Mann will play Rusty's sister, Chris Hemsworth stars as Rusty's annoying brother-in-law and Skyler Gisondo and Steele Stebbins appear as Rusty's sons in the sure-to-be funny flick.  Chevy and Beverly D'Angelo will also reprise their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold from the beloved National Lampoon's "Vacation" movies. »

It's been 32 years since Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) took his family on a cross country trek to visit the most popular theme park of the 80s, Walley World.

The duo decides to take the family on the road for another ill-fated adventure. The film marks Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley's directorial debut.

13 April 2015 3:37 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

When we featured our list of the 20 Most Anticipated Films of 2015, one of the comedies on the list was the reboot of the 1983 classic comedy National Lampoon's Vacation. Now the film is simply called Vacation, but there are still solid ties to the original franchise with Ed Helms leading the film as a grown up Rusty Griswald, getting ready to take his own family out on a vacation just like his father (Chevy Chase) and mother (Beverly D'Angelo) did when he was a kid. The two original stars of the four-film comedy franchise reprise their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold, and now we have an official first look at the film. Here's the first photo from John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein's Vacation (via USA Today): 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. »

From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.

Last week, some new images from a slew of upcoming films were unveiled in the spirit of previewing the impending Summer Movie Season. Today, even more new images have been released from three very interesting—and very different—Warner Bros. films. Director Joe Wright (AtonementHanna) re-envisions the classic J.M.

The film opens in theaters on July 24th. The highly anticipated sequel Magic Mike Xxl finds director Steven Soderbergh steeping back into the roles of cinematographer, camera operator, and editor while Gregory Jacobs takes the helm.

Meet the next generation of The Griswolds in the first images from Vacation

13 April 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Like Ghostbusters and Gremlins, a sequel/reboot to the National Lampoon Vacation series was inevitable. Some find it to be ill-advised since the movies have not been all that great since Christmas Vacation even though Vegas Vacation is a bit underrated. So, when word came down that Ed Helms would play an adult version of Rusty, fans were divided. When Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo agreed to return, more people were convinced. In the first official image from the new Vacation, we see Ed »
