BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Ed Helms recently headlined the Vacation sequel for Warner Bros., but he was also announced in the lead role of another ‘80s resurgence: Naked Gun. It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything on that front, but Helms recently spoke about the film and it turns out its future is not as secure as we might have thought.
Tradition dictates that Ed Helms would be recast as Rusty Griswold should Warner Bros. move ahead with yet another Vacation movie. If this does in deed happen, however, Helms wouldn’t be too happy.
Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, a solid summer action flick, debuted at number one while making one of the stronger openings for the franchise.
Back in 1983, director Harold Ramis and writer John Hughes teamed up to make National Lampoon's Vacation - what would end up being a rather legendary comedy about an ordinary family's road trip to a Los Angeles amusement park called Walley World.
During the summer season we don’t get too long to wait between big action movies and R-rated comedies. As such, this weekend we have the return of Mr. Ethan Hunt and a return for the Griswold family to the ever-elusive Walley World. We’ve got Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation and Vacation hitting theaters.
The 2015 Tartan Prancer is the vehicle for the world citizen of action, and it can be yours for an affordable sticker price! At least, it sounds affordable in its native country's currency. Take a look at the next step in vehicular comedy, after the jump.

Late last year, Vacation co-director John Francis Daley revealed to the world that he would be using his directorial debut to reunite with his former Freaks and Geeks co-stars Martin Starr and Samm Levine. Sadly, it turns out that the trio actually wound up being cut.
Ed Helms doesn't have to be in the zone as Andy from The Office to get his Princeton a capella jams on. The latest Vacation trailer, featuring the actor as an all-grown-up Rusty Griswold, kicks things off with his rendition of Seal's "Kiss From A Rose."
What you’ll notice, right off the bat, is that this new Vacation, written and directed by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, embraces the legacy of the original National Lampoon’s Vacation, opening with footage from the 1983 comedy. We then learn that this will be a natural sequel to the original, and not a reboot, as some might have thought.
With the annual expo known as CinemaCon off and running in Las Vegas, Warner Bros. showed off a ton of footage from their upcoming slate last night during a special presentation - including an early look at some brand new stuff from John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein’s upcoming comedy Vacation.
You can take some movies from the 1980s, pop them on now, and enjoy them as excellent films, regardless of their release year. That’s not the case with every beloved 80s movie.
The further adventures of the Griswold family will arrive much sooner than expected as the studio moved the release of the upcoming Vacation from October to July.

Back in 1999, John Francis Daley, Martin Starr and Samm Levine teamed up to become one of the greatest nerd trios in the history of the television medium when they starred together on the short-lived but beloved series Freaks & Geeks. Fifteen years later, it looks like the band is coming back together - but they're doing so in a rather unexpected way.
A funny cast doesn't guarantee a funny movie, but it sure does help. In that respect, the reboot/remake of the classic 1980s comedy Vacation is headed in the right direction, as Leslie Mann is reportedly in talks to join previously cast Ed Helms and Christina Applegate. If all goes well, the This is 40 star would play Audrey Griswold.
Vacation begins shooting next month after a delay over the intended rating (some want an R rating, while producers likely fought for PG-13). Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo are down for cameos. Does the new casting make you more, or less, excited?

Crammed inside a Metallic Pete Truckster and hopped up on forced optimism, thirty years ago the Griswold Family trekked across the country in hopes of seeing Wally World. Along the way, they committed felonies, lost several members of their crew and almost strangled each other. In some ways, their journey feels a bit dated.
