This one must have been fun to cast. Imagine sitting around trying to think up who should play Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg’s dads, then coming up with John Lithgow and Mel Gibson – both of whom totally bring it in the just-released trailer for Daddy’s Home 2, that you can see above.
Pretty perfect, huh? Of course, a big question mark is hanging over Gibson. Hacksaw Ridge proved that audiences will follow his directorial work once more, but this is his most high profile acting gig after all that stuff he did. Will audiences respond, or is he still in Hollywood Purgatory? We’ll find out on November 23, when Daddy’s Home 2 hits Australian cinemas.
