A new adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol is on the way. This one will be a musical, with Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell set to star.
Now this latest take on A Christmas Carol has a home. After a bidding war which included Netflix, Warner Bros., and Paramount all making offers to acquire the movie, it was Apple who ultimately won the project and is now in final negotiations to complete the acquisition. And it sounds like they dropped some big money on the table to pass all other bidders.
We’ve all seen Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne in comedies before. Both are clearly up to the task of making audiences laugh. And now we will get to see the two work together in Sean Anders‘ film Instant Family, which is based on a true story.
Paramount has dropped the first trailer for the upcoming film which sees the two play a married couple who suddenly adopt three children and learn that parenting may be difficult, but there are great rewards that come with it. Check out the trailer and a featurette below.
A lot of holiday films are pretty much run-of-the-mill and forgettable. A way to make a quick buck by means of using some A-listers in a generic comedy. And while most do even get a sequel, Daddy’s Home proved to be the exception to that rule. Daddy’s Home 2 reunites Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell for another screwball comedy where the slapstick and family friendly comedy is bigger. And of course with all sequels, you’re suppose to go bigger.
So they brought in the likes of John Lithgow and Mel Gibson to play their fathers. Gibson playing Dusty’s (Wahlberg) father, and Lithgow playing Brad’s (Ferrell) father. Both are the spitting image of their kids, and now things are about to get more complicated as Brad and Dusty decided to spend Christmas together. Check out the latest trailer for the film below.
In 2015, the holiday comedy Daddy’s Home really surprised us all by becoming a hit at the box office. Obviously, the film really resonated with audiences, and of course, Paramount put a sequel on the fast track. Though how do you take a film about a biological father and a stepfather (played by Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell) competing for their children’s love a step further? Well, you bring the titular characters’ fathers into the picture. Wahlberg and Ferrell both have excellent chemistry, as we have seen in The Other Guys and the first Daddy’s Home. Now, their characters’ fathers will join in on the fun.
The first trailer for Daddy’s Home 2 has arrived and it is our first look at the characters’ fathers — played by Mel Gibson and John Lithgow — joining in on the family celebration. Check out the new trailer here below.

Directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story), We’re the Millers stars Saturday Night Live alum Jason Sudeikis as David Clark, Denver’s #1 dope dealer whose entire stash has been stolen by thugs with great bone structure.
David is recruited by well-to-do pompous asshole Brad Gurdlinger (Ed Helms, The Hangover Part III) to pick up a Winnebago full of marijuana (enough to kill Willy Nelson) from Mexico, for which he’ll be rewarded handsomely.
Realizing that one man attempting to get through customs with an weed-filled RV all by himself is too suspicious, he hires a stripper (Jennifer Aniston) and two teenagers, a homeless goth girl (Emma Roberts) and an awkward virgin (Will Poulter), to play an all-American family – the Millers – so as to not arouse suspicion while crossing the border.
