Asa Butterfield Cast as the New Spider-Man

14 May 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The folks at are reporting Asa Butterfield (Hugo, Ender's Game) has been cast as the new Spider-Man for Sony Pictures and will have his first appearance as the webslinger in next year's Captain America: Civil War followed by a new Spider-Man feature in July 2017. Butterfield was reported as the front-runner back at the end of April and other than a brief report saying Tom Holland ("Wolf Hall," The Impossible) was still in the mix that never changed. Word is the new Spider-Man will keep Peter Parker a lot younger, a lot longer, focusing on his high school years and word is they plan to go with a tone matching that of a John Hughes (The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller's Day Off). Other names that were once on the short list of contenders for the Spidey role included Nat Wolff (Paper Towns, The Fault in Our Stars), Timothee Chalamet »

'Vacation' Poster: Rusty Is Ready for Walley World!

8 May 2015 4:23 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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, »

Rusty is ready for his return to Walley World in the first Vacation poster

8 May 2015 1:20 PM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

The concept of a remake/reboot/sequel to National Lampoon's Vacation seemed like a pointless endeavour and I'll admit that I've had zero faith in the project since day one. Then, Paul Shirely gave us our first bit of news out of CinemaCon and suddenly it seemed as though there may be hope for Vacation after all. Yesterday saw the release of the first trailer and it was received much more favourably than I thought it would be. Consider me intrigued. Our first poster »

Chris Hemsworth's Insanely Gigantic Bulge Is All You Need (Yes, Need) to Know About the Vacation Trailer

8 May 2015 12:57 PM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

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 — [...] »

26 Nicknames We Came Up With for Chris Hemsworth's Mighty Penis in the Vacation Trailer

8 May 2015 12:08 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Warning: So many GIFs of a giant prosthetic penis and lots of immature penis puns ahead. Probably Nsfw due to the penis-ness of it all. We feel really bad for everyone in the trailer for National Lampoon's Vacation sequel who wasn't Chris Hemsworth. Sorry, let us rephrase. We feel bad for everyone in the trailer who wasn't Chris Hemsworth's giant penis. No one was talking about Ed Helms or the gorgeous, funny Christina Applegate after seeing Hemsworth walk onscreen wearing nothing but boxer briefs and carrying a package in his pants so big that it was actually insulting. But in the best way possible, of course. Since our mom raised us right, we first focused on his perfect torso when we »

Written and directed this time around by Horrible Bosses and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 duo John Francis Daley and Jonathan M.

First 'Vacation' Trailer Is Way More Nsfw Than The One You Grew Up With

7 May 2015 5:05 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

National Lampoon's Vacation is a classic family movie. Some of its humor is a touch darker and off color, but even with strapping Aunt Edna's dead body to the roof of the car it is still the kind of movie that parents and their kids can watch together without things getting awkward. That's probably not going to be the case with its latest sequel, however. Titled simply Vacation, the new movie stars Ed Helms as the grown up Rusty Griswold who decides the only way to get his family out of the rut they're in is to recreate his favorite road trip from childhood. So after some advice from papa Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo do reprise their roles), Rusty, his wife (Christina Applegate) and two kids head off to Walley World. Along the way...

Watch Ed Helms Court Family Fun, Disaster in 'Vacation' Red Band Trailer

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 »

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?

Vacation Trailer Features a Shirtless Chris Hemsworth With a Giant Penis and You Need to Watch Now!

7 May 2015 12:14 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Yes, the trailer for the upcoming Vacation movie is hilarious. Yes, it has all the wild and wacky antics you love and remember from the original 1983 classic National Lampoon's Vacation. But the only thing you need to know about the just-released red band trailer for Vacation is that it features a shirtless Chris Hemsworth and his giant, long, enormous penis (giant prosthetic penis to be more specific). The trailer starts off with Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) all grown up with a wife (played by Christina Applegate) and two sons. Rusty decides to take the family on a vacation to Walley World (sound familiar?). The foursome gets into lots of hilarious hijinks along the way, including unknowingly taking a bath »

Vacation Trailer: Chris Hemsworth Shows Off His . . . Er, Abs?

7 May 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

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. »

The Griswolds return to Walley World in ‘Vacation’ red-band trailer

7 May 2015 11:07 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

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:
