First look at the new Griswolds in the new Vacation outing

April 13th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Well, we’ve known it’s been coming for a while now… and here’s our first look at the Griswolds from the new Vacation movie. 

The picture features Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo as Clark and Beverly, the characters we know and love form the five previous Vacation movies with Ed Helms as the grown up Rusty and Christina Applegate as his wife.

The movie will also star Chris Hemsworth, Leslie Mann, and Charlie Day. We’re still not sure what to make of all this, but it can’t be any worse than Vegas Vacation… can it?


Clark’s son Rusty (Helms) decides to take his wife (Applegate) and kids on a cross country trip to the family’s favorite stomping grounds, Wally World. Along the way, Rusty meets up with his sister Audrey (Mann), her husband (Hemsworth), and their parents Clark and Ellen (Chase and Beverly D’Angelo).

Vacation is expected to start on July 31st, 2015

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
