‘Vacation’ Trailer: No One Wants to Sing ‘Kiss From a Rose’
What at first seemed like a silly idea for a reboot/sequel has already proven itself as incredibly promising with just a couple of trailers — a new trailer for Vacation has arrived, and it’s just as funny as the previous ones (although it features less of Chris Hemsworth’s, um, area). A new generation of Griswolds hit the road for Walley World, and the results appear to be even more disastrous than the original gang’s vacation attempts.
The new trailer for Vacation opens with what will surely be one of my favorite moments from this film: Ed Helms’ Rusty Griswold attempts to lead his family in a sing-a-long of Seal’s “Kiss From a Rose” (and he even gets the lyrics right!), but no one wants to sing and one of his kids is trying to murder the other one. It’s kind of great.
There’s also lots of other hilarious stuff in there amid all the wacky physical comedy bits — the hot springs scene, which we’ve already seen, along with a dinner involving Key and Peele star Keegan-Michael Key, and a really superb moment with Chris Hemsworth getting a little too hands-on with his new friends.
In addition to Christina Applegate, Vacation boasts an amazing supporting cast, including Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Michael Pena, Charlie Day, Regina Hall and Nick Kroll. Vacation hits theaters on July 29.
