How many Mark Wahlbergs are there? I ask because I like the guy who showed up in this week's "Ted 2." I like goofball Mark Wahlberg. I like belligerent Boston Mark Wahlberg. I like dancing silly Mark Wahlberg. I like dim bulb but well-meaning Mark Wahlberg. I do not, however, care for "I'm smarter than I look" Mark Wahlberg. I do not like humorless Mark Wahlberg. I do not particularly care for serious action mode Mark Wahlberg. And when I look at the ones I don't like side-by-side with the ones I like, I find it hard to reconcile that this is all one person. So again… I ask… how many Mark Wahlbergs are there? When Paul Thomas Anderson's "Boogie Nights" was released, it was a breakthrough for the young actor, part of a banner year in his nascent acting career. He had made a few films before that, including »

With Horrible Bosses 2 directors Sean Anders and John Morris at the helm, Daddy’s Home sees The Other Guys co-stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg put their fantastic chemistry to work yet again as Ferrell’s life with his new wife (Linda Cardellini) and her two kids is upended when their dead beat real dad (Wahlberg), uncomfortable with the idea that his off spring have a new step-dad, enters the picture. There is a lot of good will coming off the pairs excellent work together in The Other Guys that will surely help Daddy’s Home, but from what we see from the above trailer, there is a solid comedy here, and the two leads, especially Wahlberg do seem to be having a lot of fun. Released: 25th December (U.S)/ 26th December (Irl/U.K.) »

Daddy’s Home trailer: New comedy reunites The Other Guys stars in a war of the dads, due this December.
When a mild-mannered man (Will Ferrell) becomes stepfather to his new wife’s children, he can’t believe his luck. The kids have some reservations but he’s sure they’ll come around and he’s always wanted to be a dad. Unfortunately for him, bad-boy daddy Dusty Mayron (Wahlberg) suddenly returns to their lives, threatening his new role in the family and leading to a battle for the kids affections involving new pets, motorbikes, treehouses and what looks like a drunken attempt at Basketball.

Daddy’s Home Trailer. Sean Anders and John Morris‘s Daddy’s Home (2015) movie trailer stars Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, Linda Cardellini, and Paul Scheer. Daddy’s Home‘s plot synopsis: “When a divorced guy’s ex-wife re-marries someone way more uptight, he re-enters her life and wreaks havoc.”
Mark Wahlberg has solidified himself as a viable comedic asset ever since Ted blew up the box-office. He was hysterical at various points in Boogie Nights, but that was a far more successful showcase for his dramatic chops than anything else. Bit parts in things like Date Night helped ramp up his official entry to comedy, and Ted just cemented that ability to transition in and out of it. This is now the second time Wahlberg joins Ferrell in a comedy – the two were in The Other Guys together in 2010.
Daddy’s Home reminds strongly of Step Brothers, though this time, »

Here’s the synopsis:
When a divorced guy’s ex-wife re-marries someone way more uptight, he re-enters her life and wreaks havoc.
Mark Wahlberg is the ‘divorced guy’ making things very difficult for Will Ferrell’s character, who just wants to be a good dad to his step-children. While their chemistry worked in The Other Guys, it’ll be interesting to see how they work together as rivals. But from what the trailer gives us, »

Directed by Sean Anders, Daddy’S Home follows a mild-mannered radio executive (Ferrell) who strives to become the best stepdad to his wife’s two children, but complications ensue when their freewheeling and freeloading real father (Wahlberg) arrives, forcing him to compete for the affection of the kids.
Will Ferrell (who also produces) on the movie’s tone: “In terms of the movies that we’ve produced, we don’t have any problem doing heightened movies that get crazy. But this one is kind of in the zone of Meet the Parents in that it’s pretty relatable in terms of the scenarios and relationships in it. »

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg played a pair of mismatched cops in the 2010 action-comedy The Other Guys. This December, the actors will once again join forces in the upcoming film Daddy's Home.

Just when it looks as if a bond is forming in this new family, all hell breaks loose when the children's much cooler biological dad (Wahlberg) turns up for a visit.
The stakes continue to rise as both men compete in the ultimate battle for fatherly supremacy.
Daddy’s Home stars Ferrell as the stepfather to Linda Cardellini’s two young children, who just won’t accept him as being nearly as capable as their own father. Ferrell’s The Other Guys co-star Mark Wahlberg stars as the biological father whose sudden return to the children’s lives finds the two father figures competing for attention.
With Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, we obviously expect their attempts to one-up each other to be hilarious, and based on the trailer they don’t disappoint. In the war for kids’ affection, Ferrell and Wahlberg learn that pony beats out puppy, and cash beats out tickles. We can’t wait to see what other outrageous attempts are made to outdo one another.
Daddy’s Home also stars Thomas Haden Church, »

The fathers wind up competing for the affection of children, culminating in a scene where Wahlberg’s character has scored courtside seats for a Lakers game. The trailer includes footage that’s already gone viral of Ferrell hitting a cheerleader (played by Taryn Terrell) in the face with a basketball.

Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg make a pretty great pair. The comedic duo turned the buddy-cop genre on its ear when Adam McKay cast them as The Other Guys. Now Ferrell looks to explore yet another abnormal family dynamic with Wahlberg for the amusing Daddy.s Home, which just dropped its first full trailer. Check it out! Will Ferrell seems to get a lot of comedic inspiration from uncomfortable family relationships that often put him on the outside of a loving relationship, looking in. I wonder what that says about the comedian.s personal life? But I digress. Here, in Daddy.s Home, Will Ferell is playing a mild-mannered step-father who is trying his best to provide for his girlfriend.s children. Only, his plans of domestic bliss are disrupted when the kids. real father (Mark Wahlberg) returns to the picture. What follows is an increasingly awkward battle of one-up-man-ship »
Just another one of those days where the trailer drops for a movie I didn't even remember writing about just over a year ago. I didn't know Daddy's Home was actually being made and boom, here's a trailer, and it doesn't look half-bad as The Other Guys stars, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg, reunite for another comedy. This time the story centers on two men battling for the love and attention of their children, one the ex-husband (Wahlberg) the other (Ferrell) the uptight step father. Linda Cardellini plays the wife caught in the middle of their stupidity. Thomas Haden Church and Hannibal Buress are among the film's supporting cast. Paramount has set a Christmas Day release date for the film, which is directed by Sean Anders (Horrible Bosses 2) and John Morris (currently attached to direct the Baywatch movie). Watch the trailer below, personally a looks a little too obvious, »

This Christmas, prepare yourself for a battle between Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. The two stars (who first appeared as a duo in 2010's The Other Guys) are going up against each other in Daddy's Home, a new comedy from Ferrell's company, Gary Sanchez Productions. He plays a stepdad who, despite the lukewarm reception from his stepchildren, loves his role. When his wife's (Linda Cardellini) ex (Wahlberg) comes into town, he tries to be friends with him, but things don't go over very well. The movie costars Thomas Haden Church, Alessandra Ambrosio (yes, the model), Paul Scheer, and Hannibal Buress. Check out the trailer below! »
Will Ferrell's already played a grown-up step-brother opposite John C. Reilly, but in Sean Ander's upcoming comedy Daddy's Home, he'll get to play a loving and devoted step-father instead. Complicating his attempts to fit into his new family is the estranged real father, played by Mark Wahlberg. Though they learned to get along in The Other Guys, Ferrell and Wahlberg's characters are quickly at odds, as seen in this first trailer for the film. You can get a more in-depth look at the film thanks to Clarke Wolfe's preview here. If you're a fan of the chemistry between these two and enjoyed the 2010 Adam McKay comedy, then you know what you're in for in this film. I consider myself in the above-mentioned groups so I'll be looking forward to the Christmas 2015 release. I don't expect the film to be anywhere near as family-friendly as Ferrell's holiday classic, Elf »
