That’s the overriding message at the heart of the hilarious first clip from the upcoming sequel, Daddy’s Home 2, which you can watch exclusively above.
The first Patriots Day teaser ended — ominously — just as the explosions went off in the docudrama’s depiction of the real-life events surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013. On Monday morning, we got a full trailer that gives some hints about the desperate aftermath, including the manhunt for the two brothers who set that catastrophe in motion. In his second movie for director Peter Berg this year (after Deepwater Horizon), Mark Wahlberg plays a Boston police officer who’s patrolling the finish line that morning when the bombs hit the crowds of spectators. ...
Deepwater Horizon from director Peter Berg and starring Mark Wahlberg is still playing in theaters, but their next collaboration isn’t far behind. Patriots Day, a dramatic re-telling of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, is a ripped-from-the-recent-headlines story that remains fresh in many people’s minds. As a new featurette debuting exclusively at Yahoo Movies (watch it above) makes clear, the filmmakers are doing everything they can to remain as faithful as possible to the facts of the event.
Peter Berg’s upcoming disaster thriller Deepwater Horizon gives faces to the men and women who were aboard the titular drilling rig when it was rocked by an explosion. Chief among those faces in the film version is Mark Wahlberg, who plays Deepwater Horizon’s southern-drawled crewman Mike Williams. Deepwater Horizon is the first of two films this fall from Berg and Wahlberg, along with the Boston marathon bombing drama Patriots Day, which examine real-life tragedy through the lens of a suspenseful actioner.
The stars of the hit comedy Daddy’s Home, which made a very solid $40 million in its opening weekend (just behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens), spoke with Yahoo Movies earlier this month about their own child-rearing philosophies. Will Ferrell — who plays a dopey stepdad to Mark Wahlberg’s badass biological father in the movie — jokingly embraced the age-old tactic of spanking. Appropriately for their characters in the film, his costar Wahlberg did not find Ferrell’s threats all that intimidating. (Watch the video above.)
Ho, ho… oh no. In this exclusive clip from the forthcoming Christmastime comedy Daddy’s Home, Will Ferrell plays a bad Santa. He stars as a radio exec named Brad who has just married the woman of his dreams: Sara, played by Linda Cardellini. The thing is, she has two children from a previous relationship with a freewheeling guy named Dusty (Mark Wahlberg), who hasn’t been around much… until now. Trying to shake off Dusty, Brad vies for the attention of his stepkids — at the expense of their unreliable birth dad.
They’ve built a full-scale suburban household — complete with a surrounding white picket fence — within the dark confines of a large soundstage at NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility in suburban New Orleans. Sure, the lawn is Astroturf, but the whole setup feels so homey you half-expect someone to start firing up burgers and dogs in the fake house’s fake backyard barbeque.
Glimpses of a silly stoned-out sing-along between Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and John (Mark Wahlberg) have surfaced online, and now we can see the whole bit.
The Other Guys are about to turn on each other. Five years after their hit buddy-cop comedy, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg reunite in the new comedy Daddy’s Home. Watch the exclusive trailer.
In their next smoke-filled adventure, Ted (voiced by writer-director Seth MacFarlane) declares to thunder-buddy-for-life John Bennett (Wahlberg) that he and his human girlfriend Tami-Lynn (Jessica Barth) want to have a baby.
When Will Ferrell acted like a drunken fool and drilled a cheerleader in the head (more on that below) with a basketball at an NBA game last month, he didn’t expect it to be that big of a deal. “For some reason, I still have blinders on when we do things like that,” Ferrell told Yahoo Movies last week when we asked if the production had anticipated fan footage of the scene going viral. In the movie, Ferrell plays Brad, a sweet-natured radio exec who treasures being a stepfather to his new wife’s two children.
