We still haven’t gotten a second The Other Guys but of course the sequel probably no one asked for is here in trailer form, I’m talking about Daddy’s Home 2.
“Brad and Dusty must deal with their intrusive fathers during the holidays.”
Released in December 2015, Daddy’s Home became a bigger box office hit than it had any right to be with $242.8 million worldwide, so a bit less than two years later here’s the sequel. And exactly as expected Mel Gibson plays Mark Wahlberg’s father while John Lithgow is Will Ferrell’s. I don’t know about you but I think it would have been a bit more interesting if it was the other way around and Ferrell had the cool dad. As it stands they’re just remaking the first film, only it’s the grandfathers that are not getting along instead of the fathers. At the same time who really knows, maybe it turns out well enough, hopefully better than the first Daddy’s Home, but I wouldn’t hold my breath for that.
Sean Anders, who also helmed the first film, directed Daddy’s Home 2 and co-wrote it with John Morris. Starring in the comedy are Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, Linda Cardellini, Mel Gibson, John Lithgow, John Cena and more.
Daddy’s Home 2 opens November 10th in the US and a few other countries.
