So. Many. Dads. Christmas should be renamed Father’s Day in this new trailer for “Daddy’s Home 2.”
Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell reunite in the sequel to their 2015 comedy. For Christmas, they decide to celebrate as one big “happy” family, including Dusty (Wahlberg), his ex-wife Sara (Linda Cardellini), their two kids, her husband Brad (Ferrell), Dusty’s new wife Karen (Alessandra Ambrosio), and her daughter.
Joining the fun is Dusty’s intimidating dad (Mel Gibson) and Brad’s goofy father (John Lithgow). And while Dusty and Brad start out on good terms, this is one powder keg of a family holiday. Things only get worse when Karen’s ex (John Cena) shows up to add even more dad rivalry to the mix.=
The sequel looks to deploy the same kind of slapstick, broad humor as the original, as seen in a gag where Ferrell cuts down a cell phone tower instead of a Christmas tree.
“Daddy’s Home 2” opens in theaters November 10.
Baby, it’s cold outside … but it’s hot in heerrrre for the “Bad Moms.”
Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn reunite for “A Bad Moms Christmas,” the holiday-themed sequel to their raunchy hit comedy. Christmas is hard enough on the three moms, but things get a lot worse with the arrival of their own mothers.
Kunis is trying to stand up to her perfectionist mom (Christine Baranski), while Bell’s mama (Cheryl Hines) is way too clingy. And then there’s Hahn’s mother (Susan Sarandon), who’s too busy boozin’ and cruisin’ to realize it’s not Easter.
The trio just want to let loose and have fun for the holiday. “Let’s put the ‘ass’ back in ‘Christm-ass,'” Hahn declares. And she gets that and some more thanks to the studly Justin Hartley, who puts on a very “Magic Mike”-like show for them.
“Bad Moms Christmas” opens in theaters November 3.

Carla Gugino told Moviefone all about her “incredibly intense” experience filming “Gerald’s Game,” and now you can get a taste of it in the terrifying official trailer.
Netflix’s adaptation of the Stephen King horror novel will be ready for streaming September 29.
Netflix’s simple tease for the film reads, “Breaking free will require more than keeping her sanity.” When tweeting out the trailer, Netflix included a quote from King himself, who called director Mike Flanagan’s movie, “Horrifying, hypnotic, terrific. It’s gonna freak you out.”
Here’s the trailer, starring Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood:The movie, like the novel, follows married couple Jessie and Gerald, whose sex game in a secluded cabin goes awry when Gerald dies and Jessie is left handcuffed to the bed with no means of getting free.
“The biggest obstacle, when it comes to an adaptation for this, is that the protagonist is handcuffed to a bed, alone in a room, for the duration of the novel,” director and co-writer Mike Flanagan told EW. “Everything that happens is happening entirely in her head, and in her memory, and it’s very hard to present that in visually compelling way.”
Watch what happens September 29 on Netflix.
