When the reboot for Vacation was announced last year we weren’t too surprised. With successful relaunches of just about every relevant horror franchise ever made, remakes are an obvious green light in Hollywood now. The next step is to poach every classic comedy from the 70s, 80s, and at this point, probably the 90s. It won’t be too long until you’re reading about an Animal House reboot or a Groundhog’s Day reboot.
Well the wait is finally over, and we have our first look at the red band trailer for 2015’s Vacation. The movie stars Ed Helms as a grown up Rusty. Rusty decides to take his wife (Christina Applegate) and kids on a road trip across America. The movie also stars Chris Hemsworth and Leslie Mann… and yes, even Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo reprise their roles. Check it out.
Honestly, we had a few laughs…. and a few cringes. Also, what’s with the meta joke that was practically stolen from 21 Jump Street? With a lot of comedy trailers, the funniest lines of the film are thrown at you right out of the gate. So maybe we’ve seen the best this film has to offer already. Vacation hits theaters on July 29th. Let us know what you think? Are you seeing it opening weekend or is it a “wait for Netflix” special?
