Two generations of Griswolds hit the red carpet Monday for the Los Angeles premiere of "Vacation" with Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo, Christina Applegate, Steele Stebbins, Skyler Gisondo and selfie-taker Ed Helms.

The Griswolds packed up the car a couple days early and made a few million dollars along the way.

“Vacation” debuted Wednesday (with some late-night Tuesday screenings) and collected a respectable $3.8 million despite mostly bad reviews and a paltry 28 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The latest in the franchise, starring Ed Helms and Christina Applegate, is expected to finish with about $30 million after five days.

By opening mid-week, the comedy got a head start on “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” which arrives in theaters Friday. The well-reviewed fifth go-round with Tom Cruise leading his Impossible Missions Force is forecast to bring in $40 million this weekend.

Cruise, who also is a producer, says a sixth “Mission: Impossible” is already in the works and could be shooting by next summer.
