In exactly one week, fans will see a new generation of Griswold's journey to Walley World in New Line Cinema's Vacation reboot. The studio has released a second red band trailer which makes it clear that this is definitely not a "family-friendly" trip, chocked full of R-rated language, most of which comes from the youngest cast member. We've seen in the previous trailers that there is a unique reversal of the sibling dynamic, with the younger brother Kevin (Steele Stebbins) bullying his older, more sensitive brother James (Skyler Gisondo). This trailer takes the bullying to a new level, in hilarious fashion, with Kevin physically abusing the bigger James and even threatening to shoot him off a horse.
The next generation of Griswolds is at it again-and on the road for another ill-fated adventure. 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. In the original Vacation, Walley World was closed when the Griswold's arrive, but we'll have to wait and see if this plot device will be used again in the remake.
This Vacation trailer also gives us a glimpse at Debbie's wild past, who realizes she's been "idolized" by a group of college girls for her hard-partying ways. We also see a river rafting excursion that goes terribly wrong and the Griswold's strange encounter with another family, which shows how much work Ed Helms' Rusty needs on his "comebacks." If this new footage is any indication, this R-rated road trip will certainly be a memorable one.
The supporting cast is rounded out by Chris Hemsworth, Leslie Mann, Charlie Day, Elizabeth Gillies, Kaitlin Olson, Keegan Michael Key, Regina Hall, Nick Kroll, Samm Levine and Tim Heidecker. Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo also reprise their roles as Clark and Ellen Grisworld from the original Vacation. New Line has yet to announce a sequel, but provided the reboot is successful when it hits theaters, a follow-up announcement will likely come in the days and weeks that follow.
John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein wrote the screenplay and make their directorial debut with this comedy movie reboot, which is set to hit theaters nationwide on July 29. The directors also recently signed on to write the script for Sony Pictures' new Spider-Man reboot, which has Tom Holland attached to star. We'll hear more about that highly-anticipated project in the months to come, but, for now, take a look at the new red band trailer for Vacation.
