A demon is giving the group of us thumbs up. Underneath the prosthetics, the very tall man is all smiles, hamming it up for us set visitors and his fellow co-workers. It must be uncomfortable as hell underneath all that makeup, but actor Dirk Rogers isn’t displaying any hints of annoyance. He was fooling around, asking what’s up and making wildly comical gestures.
It was just another day at the office on the horror movie Countdown, a movie about an app that lets you know the time you’ll kick the bucket. Yes, it sounds reminiscent of a fictional movie in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and a more apt comparison, the fantastic Brand New Testament, but neither of those movies had a gnarly demon with horns, did they?

It’s the first day of fall, but here we are talking about the most wonderful time of year thanks to news of Will Ferrell and Ryan Reynolds teaming up for a musical reimagining of the classic Charles Dickens holiday tale A Christmas Carol. But this will likely be unlike any adaptation we’ve seen before, since the filmmakers behind this take come from the world of straight-up comedy – and sometimes even R-rated laughs. Find out more about the A Christmas Carol musical movie below. Read More »

In terms of box office news, all anyone could talk about last winter was the complete and utter domination of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and with good reason — it smashed nearly every record in its path, becoming the third-highest grossing movie of all time. But a few films managed to flourish even in the shadow of Starkiller Base, and one of those was Daddy’s Home. Opening the weekend after Star Wars, the comedy quietly racked up an impressive $240 million worldwide over the course of its run. So you can probably guess what I’m about to tell you next.
Yup, Paramount is moving forward with a sequel to Daddy’s Home, with Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell set to return as the rival dads. No director has been announced, but Sean Anders (who also directed the last film) and John Morris are returning to write the script. Read More »
The last time Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell teamed up, it resulted in the mostly satisfying buddy cop comedy The Other Guys. But this time the two are going head to head in order to win over the love of Linda Cardellini‘s kids.
Daddy’s Home sees Ferrell as the new husband in a family with two kids, eager to win them over as their step-dad. But out of nowhere, their badass biological father (Wahlberg) shows up. And in the new Daddy’s Home trailer, he’s not pulling any punches when it comes to making sure his kids remember who their real father is. But Ferrell doesn’t take it lying down, and the two end up in a good old-fashioned dad-off. There’s no way this will have any impact on the children’s emotional development at all. Read More »

Here’s an early Father’s Day present for all you dads (and okay, everyone else) out there. Paramount has just dropped a new trailer for Daddy’s Home, which reunites The Other Guys co-stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg as two feuding papas.
See, Ferrell is the well-meaning, if kind of boring, stepdad to two adorable children. But his relationship with them is jeopardized when the kids’ biological father, a cool special-ops agent played by Wahlberg, comes back into the picture. Linda Cardellini plays the mom caught in the middle. Watch the Daddy’s Home trailer after the jump. Read More »
Now over a decade old, Mean Girls has become one of the most well-regarded teen films of the 2000s. Written by Tina Fey, directed by Mark Waters and starring Lindsay Lohan, the smart, saavy satire painted a believable, funny portrayal of high school life that’s still speaking to audiences today. Fey’s script, her first, was based on a book called Queen Bees and Wannabes by Rosalind Wiseman and now Wiseman’s follow up is also getting the film treatment.
The film will be called Mean Moms, based on Wiseman’s book Queen Bee Moms & King Pin Dads. Sean Anders (Horrible Bosses 2) will direct and Jennifer Aniston is potentially circling one of the leads. Read about the Mean Girls spinoff below. Read More »
Dwayne Johnson recently tweeted a photo of him reading the script for his next movie. He described it as a “big action comedy” and said his co-star would soon be revealed. That’s now happened. It’s none other than Kevin Hart, the current go-to second lead in big comedies (Ride Along, Think Like A Man, Get Hard, The Wedding Ringer). They’ll co-star in a buddy action comedy called Central Intelligence, directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (We’re The Millers). Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
In a story that’s worthy of April 1st, Dwayne Johnson is “loosely attached” to Paramount’s long-gestating big-screen take on Baywatch. The adaptation of the hit TV show has been in development for years and is now once again picking up steam with a new writer and director team. Comedy writer Justin Malen is rewriting the script (which was most recently penned by Reno 911 co-creator Robert Ben Garant) for Sean Anders and John Morris, the team behind We’re the Millers and Horrible Bosses 2, who are directing.
UPDATE: The Rock has confirmed his involvement.

You’ve gotta love how Warner Bros. is marketing Horrible Bosses 2. The last trailer pushed the edges of what “Green Band” could do, featuring some incredibly racy dialogue from co-star Jennifer Aniston. She’s back in the latest trailer, called the “Official Main Trailer” and again her story sets the tone with some hilarious, off-color humor. Everyone seems to be really going for it here and, hopefully, the movie itself adheres to that.
Horrible Bosses 2 returns all the stars of the 2011 hit. Jason Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis are once again three normal guys with major issues who turn to crime for a solution. Instead of murder though, this time the trio decide to take up kidnapping. Specifically, they target a guy and his father, played by Chris Pine and Christoph Waltz.
Directed by Sean Anders, check out the latest Horrible Bosses 2 trailer below. Read More »
