Following on from the release of the film’s red band trailer, the first TV spot has been released for the upcoming Griswold family holiday film Vacation, and features Ed Helms channeling his inner Vin Diesel.
The next generation of Griswolds is at it again. “Vacation,” starring Ed Helms (“The Hangover” films) and Christina Applegate (the “Anchorman” films), takes the family 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 (Helms) surprises his wife, Debbie (Applegate), and their two sons with a cross-country trip back to America’s “favorite family fun park,” Walley World.
Vacation is set for release on July 29th in the US and August 21st in the UK, with John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Horrible Bosses) making their directorial debut alongside a cast that includes Ed Helms (The Hangover), Christina Applegate (Anchorman), Skyler Gisondo (Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb), Steele Stebbins (A Haunted House 2), Leslie Mann (This Is 40), Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses 2), Chris Hemsworth (Thor: The Dark World), Tim Heidecker (Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie), Nick Kroll (The League), Kaitlin Olson (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) and Michael Peña (American Hustle).
