The trailer for Vacation has just been released. It's worth waiting until the end of the trailer for a glimpse of Chris Hemsworth looking his best.

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. The film marks Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley’s directorial debut.

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 “favourite family fun park,” Walley World.

Rounding out the cast are Leslie Mann (The Other Woman) as Rusty’s sister, Audrey; Chris Hemsworth (the Thor films) in the role of Stone Crandall, Rusty’s irritatingly successful brother-in-law; and Skyler Gisondo (Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, Hard Sell) and Steele Stebbins (A Haunted House 2), who play Rusty’s sons, James and Kevin. Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo reprise their roles as Clark and Ellen Griswold from the classic Vacation comedies.

Vacation is scheduled for release in Australian cinemas on August 20.
