Warner Bros. has just released the final red band theatrical trailer for the Vacation reboot. Ed Helms stars as an all grown up Rusty Griswold, who carries on the Griswold tradition of unnecessarily taking his family on a cross country vacation to Walley World, in order to bring his family together, just like in the first film. Christina Applegate plays his wife, Debbie.
As the red band card suggests, this is a very NSFW trailer, so if you really want to see it, put some headphones on, or just wait until you get home. But if you do choose the latter, check out the trailer below.
The psychical humor, foul language, and overall raunchiness in the trailer is only a tiny portion of what we will see in the film. But it doesn’t make it any less funny. Helms seems to have captured the spirit of Clark Griswold, who was just as naive in the previous Vacation films. Speaking of which, Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo appear in the reboot as Clark and Ellen Griswold. Leslie Mann stars as Rusty’s sister, Audrey (Griswold) Crandall. Keegan-Michael Key (Key and Peele) and Regina Hall (Scary Movie 1-4) will play neighbor friends.
The idea that Chris Hemsworth is branching out into comedy with Vacation is great. Based on previous trailers and stints as SNL, he doesn’t seem like he is out of place, plus he has a part in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot.
Directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, Vacation arrives in theaters next Wednesday, July 29th.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
Following in his father’s footsteps and hoping for some much-needed family bonding, a grown-up Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms) 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.
