Watch Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg try to out-dad each other in Daddy’s Home trailer

Daddy's Home Official Trailer #1 (2015) - Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg Movie HD
Father’s Day weekend marked the release of the first trailer for Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell’s upcoming comedy, Daddy’s Home. Directed by Sean Anders and John Morris (Horrible Bosses 2, We’re the Millers, Dumb and Dumber To, etc.), the movie follows the ridiculous hijinks that ensue after a somewhat absentee father (Wahlberg) returns home to give his kids’ devoted stepdad (Ferrell) a run for his money in the daddy department.

The two father figures couldn’t be more different, with Ferrell’s character being the suit-wearing Scout troop leader and Wahlberg’s the leather jacket-clad motorcyclist. Friction forms between the men even before the kids’ dad rolls into town, but it quickly becomes a problem. As each tries to prove that he’s the number one guy in their kids’ lives, an out-of-control dad battle begins. Gestures like bringing home a mangy dog are topped with a new pony, a treehouse started by one is finished by the other, and at least one wall is destroyed when Ferrell’s character flies through it. The trailer has several laugh out loud moments and gives us a good look at the dynamic between the two hilarious actors.

This isn’t the first time Ferrell and Wahlberg have joined comedic forces. They played cops in The Other Guys, a 2010 action-comedy that critics gave a respectable 79 percent rating on the Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer (at the time of publishing). More recently, Ferrell surprised everyone by starring in a Lifetime Original Movie with Kristen Wiig — something that seemed like it could be an elaborate ruse, right up until it actually aired and delightfully wasn’t. Wahlberg, on the other hand, is headed back to theaters with Ted 2, a raunchy comedy more in line with their upcoming flick, later this week.

Daddy’s Home hits theaters on Christmas Day.

Glen Powell pays tribute to Bill Paxton in honor of Twisters

Glen Powell took to social media to pay tribute to Twister star Bill Paxton.
"As we release Twisters into the world today, I just wanted to look up and tip my hat to the legend that is Bill Paxton," Powell wrote in the caption of a photo of himself alongside the late actor. "A great friend of mine who saw poetry in the natural world. His boots are impossible to fill, but this life is all about chasing the greats."

Powell and Paxton became good friends while filming the 2013 movie Red Wing. Both actors are from Texas, so naturally, they hit it off. In a recent appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Powell recalled his relationship with Paxton, who died in 2017 from a stroke at 61. Powell spoke about Paxton's love for the weather and how the late actor gave him research from Apollo 13 to prepare for Hidden Fences.
