In Universal Home Entertainment’s 2 Guns, when an attempt to take down a drug cartel blows up in their faces, two undercover operatives are forced to go on the run together, though neither knows that the other is a federal agent. Suddenly, everyone on both sides of the law wants them dead, and their only hope is to trust each other. Featuring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, we celebrate the Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD release on November 19, by revisiting some of the most memorable buddies in blue.
Axel Foley & Detective Rosewood – Beverly Hills Cop
While Eddy Murphy and Judge Reinhold have made names for themselves in today’s pop culture, it’s easy to argue that Beverly Hills Cop launched their now successful film careers. With Axel as the mouth behind the duo, and Rosewood as the partner getting him out of trouble each time, there match up is as timeless as the film. »

But if we absolutely had to pick favorites, »

Met with mixed reviews and a love-it-or-hate-it response from audiences, the Will Ferrell-starring, Adam McKay-directed comedy "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" didn't make much of a splash when it was first released in 2004. Now, nearly 10 years later, the comedy has legions of fans, is one of the most quoted movies of the last decade, and is marking its hard-won success with a sequel: "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues." In the follow-up, venerable newsman Ron Burgundy confronts the future of television journalism, leaving San Diego with the Channel 4 News Team for a stint on the spankin' new, 24-hour cable news network, Gnn, in New York City.
Everyone from the original cast is back. This time, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David, Koechner, Christina Applegate, and Ferrell are joined by some familiar faces. Harrison Ford, Kristen Wiig, Liam Neeson, James Marsden, and Meagan Good are just some of the »

We look at 20 former A-list actors, and the interesting film choices they've made...
There comes a time in every A-list actor's life when they gather their thoughts and take a step back into smaller budget or more leftfield fare - and for a variety of reasons. They may want to work with a certain director or an emerging directing talent. They might be taken by a fantastic script. They might fancy a new artistic direction. They may even have a spiritual epiphany and decide to eschew Hollywood and all its decadent trappings, or they may simply just not have a choice, since the big roles have long since dried up for them.
The reason for this list then, is to look at some of those shining lights, the household names, and at the films they took up as proof of their artistic integrity. »
The pairing of actors Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly has always proved popular, with their previous two collaborations – Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby and Step Brothers– bringing in a combined box office total of over $290 million.
Head honchos at Sony seem keen to build on that, as news of a third collaboration trickled out of Hollywood this week. Yes Man writers Andrew Mogul and Jarrad Paul are confirmed to have penned the original script for Devil’s Night, which Sony and Gary Sanchez Productions (run by Ferrell and Adam McKay) are pulling together for Ferrell and Reilly to star in.
The story focuses on Leonard and Gabe, who became the very best of friends in childhood having bonded over Devil’s Night traditions. For the uninitiated, Devil’s Night is the night before Halloween, when pranksters get up to all manner of neighbourhood mischief – and such mischief »

The Dodge brand and Paramount Pictures have teamed up in a groundbreaking co-branded marketing collaboration that casts legendary news anchor “Ron Burgundy” as the new face of the new 2014 Dodge Durango as the automotive brand launches a multifaceted advertising and marketing campaign in advance of the holiday release of the upcoming film Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. Will Ferrell reprises his comedic role as Ron Burgundy, the boastful news anchorman, in a robust campaign which debuted from Dodge on Saturday, October 5.
“No matter how much we might want to, riding around on majestic steeds just isn’t a viable option anymore. Which is why Ron Burgundy stands behind the 2014 Dodge Durango.”

The integrated cross-promotion marketing campaign marks the first time a movie studio and brand tie-in has utilized starring talent, in character, to create original long and short form content. »

"We Are Men" is one of CBS' new fall comedies, featuring four men who forge friendships because they are residing in a temporary housing complex as they navigate the various stages of being single after having been married (or almost married).
Kal Penn plays Gil, a man who had the "world's worst affair" and now desperately wants to put his life back on track with his wife Claire (Aya Cash) and daughter Maisie (Bella Rose). He tells Zap2it that unlike the other guys on the show, his character just wants to put everything back together.
"There's no doubt that Gil loves his wife," says Penn. "He made an inexcusable -- the worst mistake you could ever make and he's spent every waking minute since trying to get her back. Unlike the other three guys who are very much moving on with their lives, Gil's sort of stuck. He has »

With production on the upcoming Dumb and Dumber To having already begun, Peter and Bobby Farrelly are putting the final touches on the film's cast, and today it's being reported that they have added one of Hollywood's more popular comedic character actors to the ensemble. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Rob Riggle, the Marine-turned-entertainer who has starred in movies like 21 Jump Street and The Other Guys, is now attached to play a dual role in the anticipated sequel to the 1994 comedy hit. Reuniting pals Lloyd Christmas (Jim Carrey) and Harry Dunne (Jeff Daniels), the new film finds the duo on yet another road trip.

In Clear History, David stars as Nathan, a marketing executive at a start-up electric car company who gives up his ten percent of the business after a petty argument with his boss (Jon Hamm, TV’s Mad Men). The company subsequently makes billions of dollars, destroying Nathan’s life and leaving him publicly humiliated. Ten years later, after changing his name to Rolly and moving to a small island off the Massachusetts coast, all is well – until something from the past threatens his new life.
Directed by Greg Mottola (Paul), the movie features »
Yesterday we got to show off some stills and a poster for the latest entry into Jason Statham’s action catalogue, Homefront. Statham stars as an ex-dea agent who moves with his daughter to a small town. After his daughter kicks some bully behind at school, the father and daughter duo find themselves at the centre of a town with a grudge. Unfortuantely, this town is watched over by a meth drug lord in the form of James Franco.
Despite Franco’s involvement as the villain, and two strong female leads in Winona Ryder and Kate Bosworth, this looks like your typical Statham movie. It doesn’t help that Franco’s character is named Gator, which only reminds me of Will Ferrell’s turn in The Other Guys. Written by Sylvester Stallone, we can hope for some good old fashioned action goodness, and it does have a strong vibe of the 1980s running through it. »

Whether it’s from his work on “Human Giant” and “Children’s Hospital,” guest-starring roles on small screen sitcoms like “The Office,” or bit roles in movies like “Little Fockers,” “The Descendants” and “The Other Guys,” you’ve seen Rob Huebel. You may not yet associate him with one breakout role (unless it’s as an annoying cell phone user; more on the later), but that changing seems only to be a matter of when, not if. In Huebel’s latest film, multi-hyphenate Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant’s loose-limbed horror comedy “Hell Baby,” he plays a police officer who, along with Paul Scheer, gets a strange feeling about a married-and-pregnant couple (Rob Corddry and [ Read More ]
From Boogie Nights to 2 Guns, Donnie Wahlberg's brother has been on a steady upward trajectory. Here's some of our favourite Mark moments - what else should be on the list?
• Mark Wahlberg: 'I've been hustling all my life'
• Wahlberg on his 'drunken' antics on the Graham Norton Show
Talk to a young music fan about Marky Mark and they'll probably think you're offering them one of those new internet drugs, rather than discussing commercial rap's great white hope circa 1991.
Mark Wahlberg has long-since put his awkward pop beginnings behind him, and is now regarded as a very fine actor indeed (even if, for those of a certain age, he'll always be the leader of the Funky Bunch).
Here's our pick of five of his most memorable acting performances to date, including suggestions from @GuardianFilm followers laura_grande13, billys94, kool_hair and roxy_holman. What else deserves to be on the list? »

Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg talk quickly and shoot things in this knockabout action comedy set along the Us-Mexican border. They play a pair of dudes involved in drug running and bank robbing who unbeknownst to each other are both actually undercover agents of the DEA and Navy Intelligence. During the course of the film, they work this important detail out and uncover a mire of corruption and dodgy dealing. In order to restore a semblance of order and justice to the world, the duo must team up and kick arse, which they do. Denzel Washington wears a silly hat.

Steve Coogan may be revered by the Hollywood comedy fraternity, but whenever he crops up in a Hollywood comedy, the results are always as excruciating as watching a British football team fumbling a World Cup match. Whether it's Night At The Museum or The Other Guys or Tropic Thunder, you get a gang of American actors showing off their easy-going improv, and then you get Coogan being clenched and awkward, heightening every word and gesture for maximum comic effect. You could call it The Rowan Atkinson Phenomenon. Coogan doesn't seem to belong on the same planet as his co-stars, let alone the same film set. »
Finally, a trilogy that won't disappoint.
Word on the block is that "2 Guns" actor/ nutritional supplementer Mark Wahlberg has a third nipple. If what the new kids on said block say is true, then Wahlberg would join such fictional luminaries as Krusty the Clown or Chandler from "Friends" as proud owners of an extra (although equally unnecessary) male milk nozzles. Say hi to your mother for me, indeed.
Feel the vibrations as we titillate our readers with a celebrity deformity so bizarre it couldn't possibly be real … right?
Roughly 1 in 18 men have this magical third utter, known among learned breastologists under the condition polythelia, or a "supernumerary nipple." Women can also receive an extra honker at birth, but only 1 in 50. Not good odds, "Total Recall" fans. In the olden pre-Salem days of witch hunting in Europe extra nipples were considered Satanic, known in colloquial terms as "witch's teats," and »

Universal’s 2 Guns took top honors at the domestic box with an estimated $27.3 million this weekend. That’s a solid debut: meaning the action comedy is neither a disappointment nor a breakout hit. But this morning’s bigger story may be Sony’s Smurfs 2. Two years after The Smurfs became a surprise blockbuster worldwide, the sequel is failing to generate interest at the domestic box office. Title Weekend Total 1. 2 Guns $27,300,000 $27.3 2. The Wolverine $21,725,000 $95 3. Smurfs 2 $18,200,000 $27.7 4. The Conjuring $13,660,000 $108.5 5. Despicable Me 2 $10,391,000 $326.6 6. Grown Ups 2 $8,100,000 $116.4 7. Turbo $6,400,000 $69.4 8. Red 2 $5,650,000 $45.1 9. The Heat $4,725,000 $145.5 10. Pacific Rim $4,570,000 $92.9 Before we defuse this weekend’s big blue bomb, it’s important to acknowledge that – as far as the box office is concerned – summer 2013 is pretty much over. Though August has provided some sizable hits in the past few years, the month is known more for its surprise successes rather than its guaranteed blockbusters. After all, if a studio expects a big opening for their movie, »

’2 Guns’ weekend box office: Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington pairing disappointing? A limp "low $20 million" range, is what 2 Guns U.S. distributor Universal claims it’s expecting at the North American box office from the first-ever pairing of Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg — as momentous a cinematic occasion, if the American media is to believed, as the first pairing of Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? back in 1962. Of course, Universal’s lowball figure is an excuse for the studio to claim, "Omigod! 2 Guns has performed way beyond what any and all of us were expecting!" — as long as the Washington / Wahlberg combo brings in $25 million or more. (Photo: Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg in 2 Guns.) Well, Universal apparently made a good p.r. movie, as the R-rated, Baltasar Kormákur-directed 2 Guns collected a barely acceptable $10 million from 3,306 North American theaters on Friday according to »

When people defend a movie as "popcorn entertainment" it's a term typically reserved for movies with CGI run amok and the equivalent of running into a brick wall over and over again. In my opinion spectacle rarely, if ever, makes up for a lack of story and character development and, as 2 Guns proves, some good casting can also go a long way. For my money, 2 Guns is exactly what I think of when it comes to popcorn entertainment, a film that takes itself just serious enough to make sense and respects and develops its characters. Yet, it has enough of a sense of humor to laugh at itself and have fun at the same time, reserving pyrotechnics for plot points rather than spectacle alone. The fact Denzel Washington is one of the coolest and most charismatic actors on the planet certainly adds to that, just as does his interplay with Mark Wahlberg, »
