There wouldn’t be a road trip in Vacation without a reliable vehicle for grown up Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) and his family to take across the country from Chicago to Walley World in California. Well, reliable might be too strong of a word for the 2015 Tartan Prancer, the new family truckster in the comedy reboot.
Touted as the Honda of Albania, it comes with all the latest Albanian technology, like a CB radio, outside door handles that double as cupholders and a removable steering wheel. The Batmobile has nothing on the Tartan Prancer. Meet the new Vacation family truckster after the jump! Read More »
Summer may almost be over, but the latest road trip with the Griswold family in Vacation doesn’t begin until next week. Ed Helms plays a grown up Rusty Griswold, taking his wife (Christina Applegate) and their two sons on a trip in order to help bring them closer together, just like when he was a kid.
Now a final NSFW red band trailer makes one last attempt to get audiences on board the new family truckster for a trip that is more raunchy and rowdy than any of the preceding National Lampoon titles. This isn’t the best trailer for the movie, but it does have some amusing moments, especially from then new Griswold kids.
Watch the final Vacation trailer after the jump!

Late July brings the reboot of the comedy classic National Lampoon’s Vacation. This time it’s Ed Helms leading the new take, simply called Vacation, playing a grown-up Rusty Griswold bent on taking his own family on a trip to Walley World in an effort to bring them closer together.
There are plenty of little references to the original flick, including appearances by Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo, but something else that we were looking forward to in the movie was a mini Freaks and Geeks reunion.
The cult classic NBC series starred a young John Francis Daley, who is now a successful screenwriter with writing partner Jonathan Goldstein, and the two actually make their directorial debut on Vacation. Last fall, Daley said that fellow geeks Martin Starr (Silicon Valley) and Samm Levine (Selfie) would be appearing with him in cameos. But it turns out those cameos didn’t end up in the final cut.

Several decades ago, Clark Griswold had a dream. His dream was to drive across country and take his family to a theme park called Walley World. As we remember, that didn’t go too well. Now Clark’s son, Rusty, who endured several frightening vacations with his father, is trying the same with his family. Vacation is back.
Ed Helms stars as the new patriarch of the Griswold family and though we’ve seen a red-band trailer for this new Vacation, now there’s a green-band. It’s a little tamer, but still really funny look at the sequel/reboot of the classic comedy franchise, directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein.

Walley World is officially open in the first two images from the new Vacation movie. The film, which is out July 31, is both a sequel to and a reboot of the original franchise as Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo reprise their roles as the Griswolds and Ed Helms plays their son, Rusty. Now grown, Rusty wants to take his own family (including wife Christina Applegate) on the Walley World vacation he never got as a child. He tries, but as you can imagine, it probably isn’t going to go so smoothly.
Or is it? As the moose out front probably told you, in the first official photos, you not only see the full Griswold family you get a look at Walley World. A Walley World that’s apparently open this time around. See the new Vacation movie photos below. Read More »

Following her latest out-of-this-world role in Guardians of the Galaxy, Zoe Saldana is allowed to get a little more grounded in the new Book of Life trailer. But just a little.
The Guillermo del Toro-produced epic starts out in our world, but then spills over into the land of the dead and the land of the forgotten. At the center of the tale is Manolo (Diego Luna), a young man who harbors dreams of becoming a musician.
Saldana plays Maria, the object of Manolo’s affections, and Channing Tatum rounds out the lead cast as Joaquin, Manolo’s friend and rival. Ice Cube and Christina Applegate also star. Watch the new Book of Life trailer after the jump.

In theaters this Halloween will be a different sort of ghost story. The Book of Life is a film based on the images and stories about the Day of the Dead, and features a man, recently deceased, who hopes to journey back to the land of the living to be with the woman he loves. The real attraction in the film, which is directed by Jorge Gutierrez and produced by Guillermo del Toro, is the visual design. The lands beyond the living, as seen here, are just stunning to see; the colors and level of detail are almost overwhelming. Watch the Book of Life trailer below. Read More »
