Mel Gibson comes back from traffic court, lol, okay too soon. Mulligan. Mel Gibson comes back from his Hollywood resurrection this year with his six-pack Oscar-nominated movie HACKSAW RIDGE (2016), that won two Oscars for sound mixing and editing, to join son of anarchy Mark Wahlberg and deviant nice guy Will Ferrell in DADDY’S HOME 2, their hit franchise reteam.
But he’s not alone in the father-figure star power value-add. Beloved veteran actor John Lithgow joins the onscreen DNA party too. And there’s sidekick John Cena, who recently made a heartfelt video that truly inspires people to ‘never give up,’ and even makes you forget who the sponsor is, seriously. So, expect the best here as this foursome looks promising plot-wise.
This movie drops Nov. 10 from Paramount, but it’s never too soon to get a good laugh at the Old Man’s expense, even if it’s just an onscreen version of Pops. Because? “This November, it’s every daddy for himself,” as the studio teases the trailer.
Here’s a Look Into DADDY’S HOME 2
Paramount Puts It This Way…
In the sequel to the 2015 global smash, 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.
Directed by: Sean Anders
Star Cast: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini, John Cena, John Lithgow & Mel Gibson
Again, DADDY’s HOME 2 is in theaters November 10 from Paramount.
