The first Daddy’s Home pitted Will Ferrell’s step-dad against Mark Wahlberg’s cool dad. After a tense rivalry and a school dance-off, the two dads put their difference behind them to become best buds. But not all dads get along, as Daddy’s Home 2 is here to remind us, especially when it comes to granddads.
Mark Wahlberg is pretty busy these days. His new movie Deep Water Horizon is in theaters now and doing amazingly well. And there is a new movie called Patriots Day coming out soon staring the Boston native.
The movie centers around how police sergeant Tommy Saunders (Wahlberg) joins courageous survivors, first responders and investigators to hunt down the bombers before they strike again...
Director Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg are tackling two devastating events in recent American history in their latest films. Following the recent Deepwater Horizon, the filmmaker and actor’s next film this year will follow the tragedy of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing in Patriots Day.
With everyone obsessed with Star Wars: The Force Awakens, very few people noticed the other huge hit of December: the Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg comedy Daddy’s Home. Very quietly, this film about the rivalry between a square stepdad (Ferrell) and a supercool biological father (Wahlberg) grossed more than $150 million in the U.S. and $240 million worldwide. The movie made $70 million more than The Other Guys, the first film that paired Ferrell and Wahlberg together as mismatched buddies, and it was Ferrell’s biggest comedy since Elf back in 2003. Daddy’s Home was a bigger success than the first Anchorman or Talladega Nights (or any Adam McKay / Will Ferrell movie, for that matter).
