Tis the season to collar a gaggle of well known actors and thrust them face-first into a festive ‘comedy’ vehicle. It’s the same every year and the studios will never lose their faith in the rush of a seasonally-affected audience. Thus! Yesterday night saw the capital roll out the red carpet for the UK Premiere of Daddy’s Home 2 held at the Vue Cinema in London’s Leicester Square. We were there, we spoke to the cast, and we recorded it all for you.
The film is directed by Sean Anders, who wrote the script with John Morris and Brian Burns. It stars Mark Wahlberg, John Lithgow, Mel Gibson and Will Ferrell. Also starring are Linda Cardellini, Alessandra Ambrosio and John Cena so pretty much all bases are covered with four-quadrant casting like that.
The dream team of Scott Davis and Colin Hart stood proud on the carpet last night – here’s how they got on.
The film is released on the 22nd of November in the UK and on the 10th in the US.

The synopsis of the film
In the sequel to the 2015 global smash, father and stepfather, Dusty (Mark Wahlberg) and Brad (Will Ferrell), have joined forces to provide their kids with the perfect Christmas. Their newfound partnership is put to the test when Dusty’s old-school, macho Dad (Mel Gibson) and Brad’s ultra-affectionate and emotional Dad (John Lithgow) arrive just in time to throw the holiday into complete chaos.
