Of course Will Ferrell is getting his own bar. And of course fans are going to be pouring in from all over the country. Zach Neil and Brian Link have just opened Stay Classy New York on the lower east side of Manhattan. And it's a shrine not just to Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy but everything the actor has ever done.
The best part about this new bar is that is offers plenty of cocktails named after some of Will Ferrell's biggest hit comedies. And the artisanal menu comes packed with plenty of inside jokes from Anchorman. Step Brothers has spawned the 'Did We Just Become Best Friends?' double shot for you and your best friend, whom can redeem his shot at a later date. Order a Dirty Mike and the Boys from The Other Guys, and you'll be handed two draft beers and a house shot. »
For those filmgoers who venture out on Christmas Day to their local cinemas, Paramount Pictures and Red Granite Pictures has the perfect film for you – Daddy’S Home.
In Daddy’S Home, a mild-mannered radio executive (Ferrell) 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.

Adam McKay has never been particularly subtle about his political views, and it's been interesting watch the way he's worked things into big broad comedies. It's remarkable that a film featuring The Rock and Sam Jackson dying as cartoonishly as they do in "The Other Guys" can also feature a closing-credits sequence that was more savage and on-point than any documentary released that year about the financial malfeasance in the air. Now McKay has decided to finally tackle this head-on, and at the exact moment I got an e-mail announcing that "The Big Short" would be closing this year's AFI Fest, the first trailer for the movie also showed up, and I'm excited by what it promises. I like that Plan B is part of things as well, and obviously the match of material by Michael Lewis and a performance by Brad Pitt invites immediate comparisons to "Moneyball." McKay adapted the script with Charles Randolph, »

For his first foray into drama, Anchorman and Stepbrothers director Adam Mckay has assembled quite the cast for true life tale The Big Short, based on the novel of the same name by Moneyball author Michael Lewis. Christian Bale, Steve Carrell, Ryan Gosling, and Brad Pitt all come together as four outsiders who decide to bet against the banks after predicting the global economy crash. McKay has tackled similar material in The Other Guys, and from the stylish first trailer he has produced something very interesting indeed. Everyone seems on point here, ignoring some questionable wig and make up choices, and the ensemble promises to work incredibly well together, with each actor complementing the other perfectly. And McKay’s direction seems to pack the necessary punch to grab, and hold, an audience’s attention. Coming to this side of the pond on January 22nd, The Big Short will be released »

It’s not every day we are surprised by a new film with a handsome cast- but today is that day. Paramount has dropped the new trailer for director Adam McKay’s first attempt at a drama (the filmmaker is most famous for Will Ferrell comedies such as classics Anchorman, Step Brothers and The Other Guys), with his Christmas and Awards Season qualifying- The Big Short.
The film stars Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carrell and their luminous new hair, as a group of men who made millions of dollars from a global economic meltdown. We are super curious to see this first dramatic entry by the man who knows how to make us laugh, and it seems like he's pulled out all the stops. We haven't been this excited for a business movie since Leonardo DiCaprio was The Wolf of Wall Street.

We're officially in Awards Season, and over the course of the next four months, we're going to see some huge movies. But perhaps none with a cast as big as The Big Short.

Yes, for the first time, Brad Pitt will share the screen with Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale and Steve Carell. And it's sure to be epic.

Their bold investment leads them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything. Based on the true story and best-selling book by Michael Lewis (The Blind Side, Moneyball), The Big Short also stars an ensemble of amazing talent that includes Karen Gillan, »

Trading juvenile laughs for adult-minded drama, "The Big Short" could be a huge breakthrough for McKay, and he's luckily got Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt to help guide him. The film is based on the book by bestselling author Michael Lewis ("The Blind Side," "Moneyball"). The official synopsis reads: "When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy, they had an idea: The Big Short.

Music and Sex: Scenes from a life - A novel in progress (first chapter here). Warning: more highly graphic Tmi.
A weekend of fruitless fretting almost led Walter to agree that Martial had the right idea and the show should go on with no guitarist, and with just Walter on keyboards, but really all he'd come up with for sure was a new band name -- The Living Section, for the Wednesday arts portion of The New York Times. The other guys all agreed that was an improvement. However, he couldn't bring himself to propose to them what, in his head, he had dubbed the Martial Plan.
The thing about the band was, it had to be fit in between all the stuff that going to college was actually about, such as attending classes. So on Monday, it was back to the usual schedule, which meant one of his favorite »
Following on from turns in The Other Guys and other such buddy-cop movies, Mark Wahlberg is to star in another buddy-cop movie. The actor will star in the big-budget actioner Partners, though this time the twist is that he will be all partnered up with a female, in a film that is set to borrow a lot from films like Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
Deadline reports that Wahlberg will play an Lapd detective who falls for a beautiful woman after a one-night stand. Then he learns she is an FBI agent and his new boss on a high profile case. The trade blog says that we can expect big action set pieces and lots of explosions.
A director is currently being sought for the movie, as well as a high-profile actress to play the female lead.
The project is set up at New Line. Wahlberg will next be seen in »

Mark Wahlberg has signed on to star in New Line Cinema's buddy cop comedy Partners. The actor is no stranger to the genre, having starred in 2010's unconventional cop movie, The Other Guys, but this project is said to turn the genre on its ear. There will be no "bromance" between these cops in Partners, but quite the opposite.
The story centers on an Lapd detective (Mark Wahlberg) who has a one-night stand with a beautiful woman. He soon discovers that this woman is actually a high-ranking FBI agent, who is his new boss on a high-profile case. The project has been compared to the 2005 action thriller blockbuster Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which starred Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Partners is set to feature a number of huge action set pieces.
Mark Wahlberg will star as a Los Angeles Police Department detective in New Line’s action-comedy “Partners.”
Leverage Entertainment’s Stephen Levinson will produce. The script, written by Evan Turner, centers on a detective becoming romantically involved with a woman after a one-night stand, then discovering that she’s an FBI agent in charge of a high-profile case to which he’s been assigned.
Wahlberg starred as a detective with Will Ferrell in Warner’s 2010 comedy “The Other Guys.” He was last seen in “Ted 2” and will appear with Ferrell in Paramount’s “Daddy’s Home,” which opens on Christmas. He’s been shooting Lionsgate’s “Deepwater Horizon” with Peter Berg directing.
Wahlberg is repped by Wme, Leverage Management and Sloane Offer. Turner is repped by Wme and Underground. »

Mark Wahlberg already has some experience with the buddy cop genre, having previously starred alongside Will Ferrell in Adam McKay's fantastic action-comedy The Other Guys. Well, now he's ready to head back to the formula, as he has just signed on to Partners - a buddy cop comedy movie with a bit of a gender twist. Deadline has the scoop on this developing project, noting that it's in development over at New Line, and is based on a script by Evan Lerner - a first time screenwriter whose only credits to date are as a producer on Journey To The Center of the Earth and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Rather than pairing Mark Wahlberg with another male partner, the movie will instead put a female cop by the Ted star's side solving a case. According to the report, Mark Wahlberg will star in Partners as an Lapd detective »
Mark Wahlberg has occasionally found himself in the buddy comedy genre, including for films such as Ted and The Other Guys. Partners sees him returning to that format, but with something of a twist, albeit one that you’d think would’ve been figured out before now.Partners, which has a script by Evan Turner and the backing of New Line, finds Wahlberg as an Lapd detective who has a one night stand with a woman, and falls for her. Then he learns she’s an FBI agent and, to complicate matters, will be his boss on a high profile case. According to Deadline’s report, the studio sees this one as sitting squarely in the Mr. & Mrs. Smith arena, with a lot of big action set pieces. And, hopefully, with a decent co-starring role for an actress.There’s no word on when this might arrive on screens as »
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.
With some decent gags on display, the Ferrell–Wahlberg double-act is again looking like a »

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, »

After their onscreen partnership in the Adam McKay comedy The Other Guys, Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell are back together and are battling it out for dad of the year in the first trailer for Daddy’s Home. Sean Anders and John Morris (who wrote Horrible Bosses 2 and Dumb and Dumber To) are the directors, and the film is written by Brian Burns (who worked in the writers’ room of Entourage and Blue Bloods). 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, »
