Boss Level

The classic Bill Murray comedy Groundhog Day is the most famous movie example of a time loop scenario in which a character must relive the same day over and over again, but there have been plenty of others since 1993. The concept seems to be back in fashion in Hollywood these days, with films like Edge of Tomorrow, Before I Fall, Naked, and Happy Death Day putting their own characters through a repeating hellscape in order to teach them a lesson about themselves. And now a new movie called Boss Level will use that same formula.

daddy's home 2 trailer

The new Daddy’s Home 2 trailer makes two things immediately clear. First, this is very much a holiday movie, a comedy that leans heavily into its Christmas iconography and looks to attract families who want to sit in silence and not talk to each other for a few hours. Second, this movie looks loud. Seriously. Like Transformers loud. Everything in this trailer is pitched to 11 and I’m pretty sure it broke my old man ear drums.

Daddy's Home 2 Trailer

A couple years ago, Paramount Pictures tried to corner the market on family comedy during the holiday season by releasing Daddy’s Home in theaters just a couple weeks before Christmas. Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg going head-to-head was enough to rake in over $150 million at the domestic box office, so the studio fast-tracked the sequel for release this fall, and they’re really leaning into the holiday comedy angle hard this time.

Daddy’s Home 2 finds Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg friendlier than ever as they decide to bring both of their families together for Christmas for the first time ever rather than house-hopping like they usually do. That plan gets a little more complicated when Dusty (Wahlberg) finds out that his father (Mel Gibson) will be joining in the holiday fun this year, and he’s a far cry from Brad’s (Ferrell) lighthearted dad (John Lithgow). Plus, a new Daddy’s Home 2 trailer reveals that John Cena is getting in on the Christmas clashing with a much bigger role than he had in the first movie. Read More »

Daddy's Home 2 Trailer

When Daddy’s Home hit theaters in 2015, it had Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell as a father and step-father competing for the love of their children. The comedy was such a big hit that a sequel was fast-tracked to arrive this holiday season and the first teaser trailer has just arrived, bringing two more fathers into the fray.

Daddy’s Home 2 has Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg living harmoniously as co-dads, raising their kids with a bromance level of cooperation and friendliness. But when Christmas rolls around and their own fathers, played by Mel Gibson and John Lithgow, come to the first joint family holiday celebration, they might not see eye-to-eye again as they each try to impress their dads.
