‘Daddy’s Home 2’ Review: Mel Gibson Proves to Be One Daddy Too Many in Queasy Holiday Comedy
Daddy’s Home 2” isn’t sorry. It doesn’t care about your stupid feelings. Don’t remember what happened at the end of the last movie, or which home belongs to which daddy? Too bad. Don’t want your festive family comedies to star Mel Gibson as a serial womanizer with a flair for violence? Well, “The Man Who Invented Christmas” isn’t out until next week, so you’re shit out of luck. Don’t understand how Will Ferrell could re-team with Mark Wahlberg when a sequel to “Step Brothers” is possibly the only thing that could pull civilization back from the brink? Get in line.

A follow-up to one of Sofia Coppola’s favorite movies of all time, “Daddy’s Home 2” literally ends with its characters snowbound in a multiplex and forced to watch some limp Hollywood garbage because they don’t have anything better to do. In a better world,

Will Ferrell To Star In Adaptation Of ‘The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared’

Will Ferrell‘s filmography has been, more or less, stacked with his popular brand of outrageous, improv-style comedy. The classics are well-known (“Anchorman,” “Old School” “Step Brothers,” “Talladega Nights,” “Elf“) but duds have happened as well (“Semi-Pro,” “Land of the Lost,” “Bewitched,” “Casa De Mi Padre” “Get Hard,” “The Campaign“).

Will Ferrell still keen on Step Brothers sequel, but not Elf, Old School or Night at the Roxbury

During an appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live to promote his new film The House [read our reviews here and here], Will Ferrell has revealed that he’s still keen on a sequel to 2008’s Step Brothers.

After shooting down the possibility of sequels to Elf, Night at the Roxbury and Old School, Ferrell was asked whether he is keen on revisiting any of his past films, responding that: “We talked a little bit about Step Brothers and… so who knows. At the same time, you like to create new things.”

A sequel to Step Brothers has been rumoured for many years now, although back in February Ferrell seemed to rule out the possibility, stating that: “You have to resist the temptation. It’s just tough because the things everyone wants you to do sequels of are special because there’s not a sequel of it. I guess we’ll see, but as

Step Brothers 2 May Happen, But Will Ferrell Says No to Elf 2

Step Brothers 2 May Happen, But Will Ferrell Says No to Elf 2
Will Ferrell reveals that the only original movie that he and Adam McKay created together, that he would think about doing a sequel for, is Step Brothers. Ferrell is out promoting his new comedy The House, which unfortunately took a pretty big hit during its debut weekend. Critics were pretty brutal on the movie, some claiming that, while the movie has two great comedic stars, it has zero laughs. It may very well go down as Will Ferrell's weakest at the box office since 1999's Superstar. A lot of Ferrell's movies are torn up by critics, but later go on to cult status, which could very well be the case with The House.

Will Ferrell was recently on Watch What Happens with Andy Cohen to promote The House. During the after show, Ferrell was asked by a fan about the possibility of a sequel for Elf and A Night at the Roxbury.

‘Step Brothers’ Sequel: Will Ferrell Says There’s Still a Chance for More Activities — Watch
If you’re hoping for a “Step Brothers” sequel, don’t give up hope just yet. Will Ferrell appeared on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” a few nights ago, and as part of the After Show he fielded questions about follow-ups. It took him a while to get serious, of course: “I’ve got great news for you: no,” Ferrell responded after being asked about future installments of “Elf” and/or “Night at the Roxbury.”

After the actor also replied in the negative to “Old School,” Cohen asked whether there’s any movie Ferrell would like to see get a follow-up. He rubbed his chin for a bit before finally responding, “I’d love to see a sequel of ‘Kramer vs. Kramer.'”

‘The House’ Review: Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler’s Unfunny Comedy Is a Bizarre Endurance Test
Anyone who thinks the house always wins hasn’t seen “The House.” Not that anyone who goes to see this movie, ostensibly a comedy but in reality a bizarre endurance test, wins either — Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler’s latest is a zero-sum game in which the odds are never in your favor.

After learning that the scholarship that was going to send their daughter to college no longer exists, the happily married couple played by Ferrell and Poehler do what any caring parents would do: start an illegal casino in their friend’s (Jason Mantzoukas) house. That most of the patrons they aim to get rich off of are their neighbors and friends never seems to be an issue, nor is it the source of either comedy or tension.

Han Solo Firing Proves Studios’ Franchises Don’t Want Directors To Be Storytellers
Oh, the irony: As TV creators seek inventive ways to adapt the visual language of cinema, Hollywood’s big-budget, big-screen movies are increasingly becoming more like television.

With serialized TV shows, control needs to be in the hands of writers and showrunners. That’s because the story is still unfolding and the production is built from episode to episode. The director can’t be the principal storyteller, which makes it challenging to put a premium on visual storytelling.

Remembering The Flash TV Series That Never Was

If anything, this has certainly been an interesting week when it comes to superhero trivia. For example, not only have we learned nifty things such as Batman & Robin director Joel Schumacher wishing he’d gotten the opportunity to direct a movie focused squarely on Arkham Asylum, but we’re also about to look back at a forgotten attempt to bring The Flash to the small screen.

By now, the current series’ reputation most certainly precedes it and many of you are no doubt aware of the show that featured John Wesley Shipp as the lead, which aired nearly three decades ago. But what you may not have heard about was when the now defunct WB network tried to bring the Scarlet Speedster to television back in 2003.

At that time, Smallville was still in its infancy and, while it’s fairly well known that those working in WB’s TV division were so close to bringing an Aquaman spinoff to fruition – and later Justice League, believe it or not – there were other DC properties they had their eye on, namely The Flash. In fact, Daily Variety broke the story the very same day Christian Bale was announced as having been cast as Batman.

Basically, Todd Komarnicki (Resistance, Elf) was tasked with writing and executive producing this drastically different take on the iconic hero that’d have seen him as a citizen of Gotham City who was fresh out of college. What’s more is that he wouldn’t have worn any type of slick costume, mirroring Smallville’s “no tights, no flights” mandate. These days, many would scoff at such a notion, but it’s important to remember that when this project was taking off, superheroes weren’t yet fully considered cool in the eyes of the mainstream (I’d argue that our current Golden Age didn’t kickoff until 2008 with the releases of The Dark Knight and Iron Man.)

Komarnicki had this to offer before the endeavor hit a dead end:

“This is a story about a guy who’s aimlessly drifting through life and barely moving at the speed of life when he discovers his calling is to move at the speed of light.”

What remains unclear to this day is who’d have taken on the mantle, be it Jay Garrick, Barry Allen, Wally West, or Bart Allen. Based on what WB’s Carolyn Bernstein had to say though, it may have been one of the younger iterations:

“It’s a big, fun, adventure series. There’s also a mentor character who’ll train him, and there’s a legacy of Flashes before him.”

While it’s fun to ponder what could have been – also because time travel would’ve been a core element – it’s for the best this never took off because we would’ve never seen Smallville’s version of The Flash (Bart Allen), who was the first major DC hero to guest star on that series. Furthermore, the dominoes leading to the Arrowverse as we know it today likely wouldn’t have fallen, either.
