In the latest example of Hollywood’s love of making sequels to films nobody particularly wants, comes Daddy’s Home 2 – the follow-up to the 2015 movie that most people had already forgotten existed. To help ensure people turn up for this new film, Wahlberg and Ferrell will be joined by John Lithgow and Hollywood’s favourite racist, Mel Gibson.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘In Daddy’s Home 2, father and stepfather, Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) and Brad (Will Ferrell) have joined forces to provide their kids with the perfect Christmas. Their newfound partnership is put to the test when Dusty’s old-school, macho Dad (Mel Gibson) and Brad’s ultra-affectionate and emotional Dad (John Lithgow) arrive just in time to throw the holiday into complete chaos.’
The film should be out towards the end of the year. Take a look at the trailer below.
