Paramount certainly has a lot of confidence in “The Big Short.” It's a financial drama with a superstar cast and which was suddenly dated for an awards season release last month and nabbed a world premiere slot at the AFI Film Festival. Its scheduled release is understandable for several reasons, number one being Paramount has no other Oscar hopeful this season. Then there's the cast, with the A-list team of Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling working under the direction of Adam McKay's (“Anchorman,” “Talladega Nights”) —it's his first foray into making Movies For Adults. Read More: AFI Film Review: Adam McKay's 'The Big Short' Starring Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling & Brad Pitt McKay’s been yearning to get serious for several years now —his social media presence is full of political outrage and “The Other Guys” concerned white collar crime.

Seemingly becoming its own subgenre in the last few years, the Kevin Hart buddy comedy has perhaps its most promising entry next year. Central Intelligence teams him with Dwayne Johnson, who has become Hollywood’s go-to action star as of late. Thankfully letting him exercise his comedy muscle that he deftly showed off in The Other Guys, the first trailer has now landed today.
Coming from director Rawson Marshall Thurber (We’re the Millers), the story follows Johnson’s character as a CIA agent who recruits one of his former classmates for a mission. With a script partially by Ike Barinholtz, hopefully it’ll be one of the funnier films next summer, considering the match-up. Also starring Amy Ryan, Aaron Paul, and Danielle Nicolet, check out the trailer and poster below.
The story follows a one-time bullied geek who grew up to be a lethal CIA agent (Johnson), coming home for his high school reunion. »

The 2008 financial collapse is put under a microscope (again) in the new satire The Big Short, a movie that candidly raises more questions than it answers. Most of its dialogue is dense economics jargon that will fly by most moviegoers but not alienate them. The plot is easy to navigate without fully understanding the fine print thanks to director and co-writer Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) and his nose for quick wit. This is McKay's first dramatic turn after directing broad comedies like Anchorman, and The Other Guys, and he handles the change well, infusing the film with much needed levity when needed. Recent films like Margin Call, Inside Job and this year's superb 99 Homes with Andrew Garfield have dealt with the housing crisis in different ways. The Big Short focuses on the true story of a few Wall Street insiders who saw the market collapse coming and schemed ideas »

Anchorman and The Other Guys director Adam McKay recently made the jump from comedy to drama with The Big Short, and when The Hollywood Reporter caught up with the filmmaker recently, they were quick to ask him about his involvement with Ant-Man and The Wasp. All we know about the Ant-Man sequel as of right now is the fact that Peyton Reed is in talks to direct, but it sounds like Paul Rudd may be writing the screenplay solo if McKay is unable to find the time to join him. "I was talking to [Paul] Rudd about it the other day. We’ll see what happens, but that would certainly be fun," he teased. "I loved working with Marvel. And I have a couple of projects in development. One of them is more dramatic, one’s more comedy, still with a little bit of political teeth to it. And there’s »
How do you make a movie from a book about bad banks? “That’s what excited me about it. I read the book in one night,” director Adam McKay told Deadline’s Dominic Patten today on why he chose to make a feature adaptation of Michael Lewis’ novel The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine about the guys who made a killing during the 2007-2008 financial crisis. For a director who built his career on tentpole Will Ferrell comedies like Anchorman and The Other Guys, the chance… »

In 2010, Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg shared the screen in the buddy cop action comedy The Other Guys. The duo.s on screen chemistry was undeniable, so it makes perfect sense that the two would be paired again, only this time as opponents rather than partners, in the upcoming film Daddy.s Home. In the film, Ferrell plays a step dad to a beautiful family, with a wife and two kids whose toes get stomped on when biological daddy Wahlberg enters back into the fray. The classic battle of old and new ensues, with Ferrell playing the part of the straight-laced, stuffy, ultra-supportive, good-natured family man while Wahlberg portrays the bad boy rebel type that who can do anything and, of course, is the "cool dad" to his kids, who adore him. For Wahlberg, the film represents the potential for a resurgence to the top of the box office. The »

Will Ferrel and Mark Wahlberg proved to be a pretty good double act with The Other Guys, so hopes are high for the pair to bring it once again with Daddy’s Home. The latest trailer does show each actor playing to their strengths (Ferrell being the loud, put upon nice guy, and Wahlberg as the likable jerk), and there’s some pretty solid comedy on display here, so it looks like lighting may strike twice with this particular team-up. Released: 25th December (U.S)/ 26th December (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: A mild-mannered radio executive strives to become the best stepdad to his wife’s two children, but complications ensue when their freewheeling and freeloading real father arrives, forcing him to compete for the affection of the kids. »
