One of the funniest parts of the Zoolander 2 trailers features Owen Wilson’s Hansel hurling increasingly large and dangerous objects at Ben Stiller’s Derek Zoolander in an effort to trigger his magical model powers. You can see a slightly extended version of that scene in one of two new clips Paramount has released to promote the long-delayed comedy sequel, while the other…well…it’s pretty special.
It’s been discussed a few times, but we’ve still never seen a sequel to Step Brothers, Adam McKay’s masterpiece about two grown men (Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly) whose parents marry, forcing them into an unlikely and unwanted familial relationship. And apart from a few small cameos and supporting appearances, Ferrell and Reilly, who also co-starred in McKay’s great Talladega Nights, haven’t made another movie together at all, with or without McKay. It’s enough to make a man give up hope, and possibly to stop lathering up their gorgeous six-pack abs with Kiehl’s.
Will Ferrell is at his best when he’s at his most outrageous. Give me Mugatu tossing hot coffee in his assistant’s face, a giddy adult elf, or a chubby ‘70s band mate banging the cowbell. But as a straight-laced, jazz-loving stepfather? No thanks.
Maybe you didn’t realize how much you missed Will Ferrell’s George W. Bush impression on SNL until the actor popped in for a surprise appearance during the cold open, delivering a State of the Union address on our current crop of GOP presidential hopefuls — which is essentially just Ferrell’s Dubbya roasting his fellow Republicans in an attempt to make an unprecedented bid for a third term as POTUS.
When Anchorman 2 hit theaters in 2013, it had been nine years since we first met Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 news team — a pretty significant delay that led to increased comedic expectations, resulting in an underwhelming sequel. At the time, writer / director Adam McKay said he wouldn’t make another one, but he does have some ideas for a potential Anchorman 3 plot, and it wouldn’t be the first time a director backtracked on their promise to avoid another sequel…
Cult comedies that attempt to regroup for a sequel many years after the original film often have mixed success. You’ll probably find few people who like Anchorman 2 or Dumb and Dumber To as much as the originals. But, that hasn’t stopped Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson from returning for Zoolander 2 and, despite the odds, this actually looks really funny.
After earning huge laughs with their whiskey-and-water dynamic in 2010's The Other Guys, Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell reteam for a comedy that puts a hilarious spin on the emotional fallout of divorce.
Do you want to make bank? Do you want to drive a Range Rover? Well, we’ve got some good news for you. The Catalina Wine Mixer, the biggest helicopter-leasing event in the Western Hemisphere since 1997, is actually going to take place this month on Catalina Island, and you can be there. POW.
Josh Gad has reportedly been in talks for months to play iconic film critic Roger Ebert in Russ and Roger Go Beyond, a new film that follows Ebert’s personal and professional relationship with filmmaker Russ Meyer. Will Ferrell has been locked in the role of Meyer for a while now, but the rumors of Gad’s involvement have now become more official as the actor has officially signed on for the project.
It should hardly come as a surprise that guys like Robert Downey Jr., Will Smith and Tom Cruise are among the highest-paid actors in the world. For his part, Downey Jr. is one of the biggest stars in the biggest movie franchise, while Cruise churns out one blockbuster after another, and the very presence of Smith commands huge box office returns. Predictability aside, there are some surprises on this year’s list of the highest-paid actors in the world.
