New posters have gone online for the American Pie sequel American Reunion and for the delayed Mel Gibson thriller How I Spent My Summer Vacation. While I’m still not that interested in a new American Pie movie, I like how the Reunion poster is based on the poster for the original movie. Except…this time Michelle (Alyson Hannigan) is holding a baby bottle instead of a flute…and the flute went in her…oh, sweet God. If that’s a joke in the movie, then they have taken gross-out humor to a whole new level. It’s a disturbing level that may fall out of the comic realm.
As for How I Spent My Summer Vacation, I didn’t even remember this movie existed. It turns out Gibson made it with Adrian Grunberg who served as the first assistant director on Apocalypto. Gibson plays “a career criminal who gets caught by Mexican authorities and is sent to a drug- and crime-filled prison, where he learns how to survive with the help of a 9-year-old boy.” If it turns out the “help” the 9-year-old boy provides is as a human shield, I would absolutely believe that for a Mel Gibson movie. Hit the jump to check out the posters. American Reunion is due out April 6, 2012. How I Spent My Summer Vacation is due out “Summer 2012” but who knows if that will be in theaters or straight to DVD (if that date even holds).

Here’s the synopsis for American Reunion:
In the comedy American Reunion, all the American Pie characters we met a little more than a decade ago are returning to East Great Falls for their high-school reunion. In one long-overdue weekend, they will discover what has changed, who hasn’t and that time and distance can’t break the bonds of friendship. It was summer 1999 when four small-town Michigan boys began a quest to lose their virginity. In the years that have passed, Jim and Michelle married while Kevin and Vicky said goodbye. Oz and Heather grew apart, but Finch still longs for Stifler’s mom. Now these lifelong friends have come home as adults to reminisce about—and get inspired by—the hormonal teens who launched a comedy legend.
