4th Row Films To Produce National Lampoon Documentary
space
The Movie God   |  @   |

4th Row Films has announced that they have acquired the rights to develop a feature-length documentary that will share tell the complete story of one of the more beloved banners in comedy history, National Lampoon.

National Lampoon began in 1970 as a comedy magazine, branching out from the Harvard Lampoon (which was started at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1876). Since then, the name has gone on to spawn many books, albums, shows, and of course movies — most notably of which were Animal House and all of the Vacation movies with Chevy Chase and friends. Since those great early days, sadly, many complications, financial troubles, and exchanges in ownership have resulted in the steady decline of quality and a pile of straight-to-DVD movies that don’t deserve to wear the National Lampoon title.

Writers Hired For New Line’s ‘Vacation’ Reboot; Chevy Chase To Return
space
Empress Eve   |  @   |

VacationJonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley have been hired to pen the script for New Line’s planned Vacation sequel/reboot, according to Variety.

While the trade is reporting that New Line is doing a franchise reboot as if that’s new information, this project was actually already confirmed back in early October 2009 with David Dobkin (Wedding Crashers) to produce (read Are We Ready For A Sequel To ‘National Lampoon’s Vacation’?).

Back in October, New Line announced their intentions for the new Vacation, with Dobkin producing and possibly directing. The new film will be a reboot of the franchise, but also a type of sequel, since it will be about a now-adult Rusty Griswold — the son in the original films — and his own road trip, this time with his own wife and kids. Where to? Wally World theme park, the destination of the first film, which is closing its doors forever.

Chevy Chase, who played dad Clark Griswold in the film series, is reportedly returning as the grandfather for the new film. No confirmation yet if Beverly D’Angelo will be “grandma,” though initial reports stated that there was room for her in the film. (Chase and D’Angelo did just recently reprise their roles as the Griswolds for a Home Away commercial and short – Watch Now: Chevy Chase In ‘Hotel Hell Vacation’ Film Short).

Watch Now: Chevy Chase In ‘Hotel Hell Vacation’ Film Short

Hotel Hell Vacation

If you were watching the Super Bowl last night, then you most likely saw the Home Away commercial with Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo reprising their roles from the Vacation franchise.

The commercial is presented as if it’s a teaser trailer for a short film — the film itself is online at the Home Away site. You can watch the 14-minute short, titled Hotel Hell Vacation, here below. I’ve also embedded the Super Bowl commercial, but I recommend skipping it in favor of watching the entire short film (the commercial just doesn’t do it justice).

At first the mini-movie seems like it’s a dud, as one of the early scenes with the Valet is not so funny. But stick with it, trust me, it gets quite humorous after that.

I’ve traveled a lot, so I can relate to the ludicrous scenarios presented in the movie. Plus, it’s great to see Chase and D’Angelo back on screen as the vacation-jinxed Griswolds.

Are We Ready For A Sequel To ‘National Lampoon’s Vacation’?

Vacation

It’s being reported that a new movie in the National Lampoon series is now on the way, but it’s not quite the mindless processed generic college movies they have been making the last few years. No, this movie actually isn’t involved with the National Lampoon name at the moment, and will bring us right back to their roots with those lovable simpletons, the Griswold family. This new movie is planning to actually focus on the son in Vacation and its sequels, Rusty, and his family now going on a road trip of their own with references to his old family adventures. Wacky hijinks are sure to ensue.

New Line Cinema is currently meeting with writers to get a script going as soon as possible, and it is noted that places will be left wide open for the main draw Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) and his wife (Beverly D’Angelo) to appear in some fashion as the now grandparents. The movie is aiming to be more like Planes, Trains and Automobiles and Little Miss Sunshine instead of other road trip movie trash like and Are We There Yet? and RV.

Deal: Amazon DVD Box Set Blowout: X-Files, Angel, Alien, Harry Potter, and Much More!

Empress Eve   |  @   |

Amazon is having a big Box Set Blowout, which has lots of great deals on DVD box sets, so I’ve listed several items that I thought might be of interest.

But first, let me tell you what just happens to be the Gold Box spotlight item of the day: The X-Files: The Complete Collector’s Edition, which you can get for only $123.99. That’s 62% off the regular price and let me tell you, I’ve have been waiting for this item to not only go on sale, but to even be available at all — most times you can’t even get this, so I’m thinking that I might just need to gift this item to myself. It’s just too good to pass up. This comprehensive box set includes all nine seasons of the television series, the original feature film Fight The Future — another typically hard to find item — plus, the Mythology Threads featurettes.

And speaking of The X-Files, it looks like they’re selling a 2-pack of both movies — Fight The Future and I Want To Believe — in Blu-ray for $39.99: The X-Files Movie 2-Pack [Blu-ray]. (By the way, there’s still a chance to win a DVD or Blu-ray copy of the recently released I Want To Believe in the Geeks of Doom X-Files Contest.)

Feel free to let me know what you think about these offers and if you’re planning on taking advantage of them! See list of noteworthy items here below.
