New Line has released another red-band trailer for “Vacation,” the upcoming sequel/minor reboot of the “National Lampoon’s Vacation” comedy franchise. Ed Helms plays a grown-up version of Rusty Griswold in this take and he opts to take his own family on a trip to Walley World.
The new trailer puts the focus squarely on the Griswold family themselves rather than the supporting characters of the piece such as Chris Hemsworth’s scene-stealing brother-in-law character.
Hemsworth’s prosthetic penis was all the talk of the first trailer, and the film’s directors spoke with ET Online about the already infamous scene. Co-director John Francis Daley says:
“We had a choice between an 8-inch and a 10-inch, and we tried them both on him in a room above the bedroom we were shooting. Just the three of us alone in a room sampling penises was a very strange experience for us.”
Christina Applegate, who stars in the scene, revealed that many of the cast just couldn’t help but stare – though not at the prosthetic:
“It could have been vulgar. Someone would have messed that up, because they would be thinking, ‘This is so funny what I am doing with my thing, and I am going to be really, super funny with it.’ He wasn’t. He was playing it as if he was fully clothed. The rest of the time, we all just spent talking about his abs. Not in a lascivious way. Just in like how, that’s not… I have never seen… and the skin quality looks like – Come on, that looks so soft. What moisturizer do you use, that’s incredible. We all would watch and be like, ‘Mhm. Amazing. Wow.’ Men, women, children, animals, everyone stopped.”
“Vacation” opens in cinemas on July 29th.
