First DADDY’S HOME Trailer: Ferrell and Wahlberg Battle for the Fatherhood

Will Ferrell as Best Stepdad

Paramount Pictures International has released the first trailer for Sean Anders and John Morris‘ (Horrible Bosses 2) new comedy Daddy’s Home, which reunites The Other Guys co-stars Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg as two feuding dads.

While the premise is pretty straightforward, the first trailer shows off a fairly funny dynamic, consisting of cartoonishly mean-spirited slapstick.

Daddy’s Home hits theaters Christmas Day and co-stars Linda Cardellini, Hannibal Buress, and Paul Scheer as DJ “The Whip.”

Check out the trailer below, released perfectly in time for Father’s Day weekend.

I freaking laughed a lot at this.

Daddy’s Home follows a mild-mannered radio executive (Ferrell) who strives to become the best stepdad to his wife’s two children, but complications ensue when their freewheeling and freeloading real father (Wahlberg) arrives, forcing him to compete for the affection of the kids.
