Vacation Remake Walley World header

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.

Vacation Red Band Trailer

We’ve been hearing all sorts of positive buzz from behind the scenes about Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema’s reboot of the comedy classic Vacation. The film was bumped up from an initial fall release to a much more confident summer date, and now the first red band trailer has arrived to show us what all the fuss was about. Surprisingly, this looks absolutely hilarious. Watch the Vacation red band trailer after the jump. Read More »

new Vacation movie Walley World header

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 »

‘Book of Life’ Trailer #2: He’s Just a Friend

The Book of Life trailer

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 »

Anchorman 2 bloopers

As audience members, we’re encouraged to laugh as long and as loud as we can at Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. But as the stars of the show, Will Ferrell and company were obligated to maintain a straight face. Which isn’t always easy when the scenes are this hilarious.

A recently released reel of Anchorman 2 bloopers show the stars screwing up and screwing around on set — riffing on specialty condom brands, bursting into giggles at the phase “frothy ejaculate,” or nearly tearing up with laughter during an awkward romantic scene. Even Brian Fantana’s famous kittens get in on the non-camera-ready action, adorably attacking each other instead of their toys. Watch the video after the jump.

When the first Anchorman hit theaters, we were smack in the middle of the ’00s. Lost and Veronica Mars had yet to hit the airwaves. The Janet Jackson Super Bowl controversy was still kind of a thing. John Kerry looked like a viable option for the presidency. It was a crazy time.

But times have changed for us since then, and so, too, have they for the Channel 4 news team. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues sees Ron (Will Ferrell), Brian (Paul Rudd), Champ (David Koechner) and Brick (Steve Carell) running headfirst into the ’80s and facing the new challenges that come it. Among those are diversity in the workplace (as represented by Meagan Good) and the 24-hour news cycle (as represented by Dylan Baker). Watch the first trailer after the jump.
