original Anchorman plot

Ron Burgundy and the Channell 4 News Team turned to cannibalism an early draft of Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. As wonderfully outlandish Adam McKay‘s comedy it, it was initially a little crazier. Ron, Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), Brick Tamland (Steve Carell), and the rest of the team once had to find their way down a mountain side, as they battled deadly orangutans.

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.

The House Trailer

Now that blockbuster summer is in full swing, I’ve been wondering what the hit comedy of the season is going to be. Snatched has arrived and it doesn’t seem to be nearly as good as Trainwreck. Most people might say Baywatch is the next best option, but with all we’ve seen so far, I don’t think it’s going to deliver. Rough Night has the potential to break out as well, but I’m still on the fence with it. There’s The Big Sick, which we know brings the goods, but that’s a lower key release and even though it’s hilarious, it’s not a straight-up big studio comedy. But after seeing a new red band trailer for one of our summer comedy options, I’m ready to place my bet.

The House stars Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler as a couple who find themselves in the unfortunate position of having squandered their teenage daughter’s college fund just as she’s graduating high school. So what’s the best way to make sure she doesn’t end up a homeless stripper? Start an underground casino with hilarious results.

Holmes and Watson cast

We first heard about Holmes and Watson back in 2008. At the time, it was going to star Will Ferrell and Sacha Baron Cohen, but the comedy fell to the wayside, and we instead got two Sherlock Holmes movies from Guy Ritchie. The musical was revived last summer with Ferrell still onboard but with Cohen out. Etan Cohen‘s (Get Hard) film now has John C. Reilly playing Watson, making this an exciting reunion for the Step-Brothers and Talladega Nights stars. They’re in good company, too, as Hugh Laurie (Chance) and Ralph Fiennes (A Bigger Splash) have signed on to star in the film.
