National Lampoon’s European Vacation takes the Griswalds to high definition

Warner Home Video has just added the hilarious comedy National Lampoon’s European Vacation to their Blu-Ray line-up, scheduling the movie for release in August 2010 to celebrate the movie’s 25th Anniversary.

The first time the Griswalds took a trip – in “National Lampoon’s Vacation”” – moviegoers everywhere went along for the ride… and went bonkers! Now, they’re into even zanier sightseeing in “National Lampoon’s European Vacation,” directed by Amy Heckerling.

Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo return as Clark and Ellen, winners of a European tour on which their teenagers Rusty (Jason Lively) and Audrey (Dana Hill) join them. Deluxe accommodations… aren’t. Clark tries left-sided English Driving, leaving Stonehenge unhinged. In Bavaria a slap-dancing polka turns into a slaphappy free-for-all. It’s holiday road havoc for the Griswalds – and your high road to hilarity!

The release will serve up the movie in 1080p high definition with a Dolby Digital 5.1 TrueHD audio track. As the only extra, only a Commentary Track with Chevy Chase is being listed, but considering that there is still plenty of time, additional supplements may still be added to the mix at a later date.

Keep your eyes open for this “European Vacation” on August 10, 2010 when the Griswalds roll in on Blu-Ray.
