Vacation (wot no proper title this time?) sees Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms – The Hangover I, II & III) taking his own family on a road trip to “Walley World” in order to spice things up with his wife and reconnect with his sons.
Also starring Christina Applegate, Leslie Mann, Elizabeth Gillies, Beverly D’Angelo, Skyler Gisondo, Nick Kroll, Charlie Day, Keegan-Michael Key and Chris Hemsworth, the original films were classics and this looks great from the trailer but to go the full distance, it has a lot to live up to.
The trailer also shows Chevy Chase very briefly. I hope he’s in the film a lot more than that, although it’s usually a good indicator that he won’t be.
Pointless trivia: The Vacation Franchise began in 1983 and had a sequel (2 years later) another sequel (4 years later) and another sequel (8 years later) and development for the current sequel started in 2013 (16 years later).
Vacation is due for release in the UK on November 13th. It also has two directors (John Francis Daley and Jonathan M Goldstein) which is never a good sign.
