First Trailer For Daddy's Home
Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell are competitive dads
Father’s Day weekend seems like the right time to post a trailer featuring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell’s comedy reunion Daddy’s Home. To see the pair as competitive pops, check out the first footage below.
The film, which casts the Other Guys co-stars as rivals, finds Ferrell as a mild-mannered radio executive who has comfortably settled into life as a step-dad with wife Linda Cardellini and her two kids. But his world is upended when the children’s dead-beat real dad Dusty Mayron (Wahlberg) appears back in their lives, bringing abs, gifts and the sort of powerful bond only a real father can apparently offer, even if he hasn’t exactly in the running for Dad Of The Year.
Ferrell, naturally threatened by this interloper, becomes competitive, and a war begins for the hearts of the kids and Cardellini that encompasses tree houses, ponies, motorbikes and even a dunk contest at a local basketball game. Suffice to say, it doesn’t seem to be going well for Ferrell. The pair has an easy comic chemistry, and Wahlberg’s clearly having fun playing up the bad boy dad stuff.
With Horrible Bosses 2 duo Sean Anders and John MorrisSean Anders and John Morris behind the camera and Brian Burns on script duty, Daddy’s Home also features Thomas Haden Church, Paul Scheer, Hannibal Buress and Alessandra Ambrosio. The film will be out here on December 25. Happy Dad-Mass?
