pet sematary set visit

Over the summer, I had the chance to head to the Montreal set of Pet Sematary, the new adaptation/remake of Stephen King‘s 1983 novel. What I saw there excited me beyond my wildest dreams. I’m a huge Stephen King fan, and Pet Sematary is my favorite King novel, immediately making me suspicious of any adaptation. What I came away with is the knowledge and confidence that the film is in excellent hands, and might just be the next great Stephen King movie adaptation.

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 »
