Now that Halloween is over, it's time to look forward to the other big holidays on the horizon. Daddy's Home 2 has a new trailer designed to get everybody ready for a big family Christmas. The newest trailer for the Will Ferrell/Mark Wahlberg comedy contains lots of new material, including lovely family stuff like babies on out of control innertubes and dead hooker jokes. Check it out.

A great deal of the newest Daddy's Home 2 trailer is brand new material we haven't seen before. The scenes are familiar but we're seeing some additional parts, or possibly even alternate takes, of scenes like the Will Ferrell "girl talk" with his son and the snowball fight between the members of a nativity scene. We also see that the film will have a lot of physical comedy, as several people end of falling on their ass throughout the trailer, and Ferrell ends up losing his pants at the end.

The one scene that remains completely unchanged here is the appearance in the trailer by John Cena. We've still only seen the one moment from him, meaning that he either isn't in the film much more than he was in the first Daddy's Home, or his scenes are being intentionally held back. The word was that Cena would have an expanded role in the sequel, if that's the case, it seems you'll need to pay to see more of him.

The original Daddy's Home was a surprisingly fun film thanks to the chemistry that Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg have shown before As with most comedy sequels, a new element is being added here that will change the dynamic between the characters. Namely, the inclusion of John Lithgow and Mel Gibson as the fathers of our two lead characters.

The first Daddy's Home wasn't a blockbuster by any stretch, it was generally derided by critics, but it made $150 million at the domestic box office, and since it was a simple enough character-driven comedy that didn't have an insane budget, that means solid profit for the movie. We frequently see films like that get sequels green-lit, as, compared to your average tentpole movie, it costs them nothing to try and tap that same audience again. If the sequel fails, it didn't cost much, but if it succeeds, the windfall can be substantial.

Add to it the fact that the sequel is designed to a Christmas movie, and you have an added draw, as there is always an audience looking for something new to watch around the holidays. Whether Daddy's Home 2 is going to become a modern Christmas classic is too difficult to say at this point, but we'll find out when the movie hits November 10.
