“Daddy’s Home 2” will debut in theaters on November 10, 2017. The follow-up to the 2015 hit will bring back Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell as warring fathers. It is also rumored to add John Lithgow and Mel Gibson to the mix. Sean Anders, the director of the first film, will return behind the camera.

“Daddy’s Home 2” will head off against “The Star,” a Sony animated offering, and “Red Sparrow,” a Fox thriller from Francis Lawrence, the director of several “Hunger Games” films. It will also be up against the second weekend of “Thor: Ragnarok” and “Bad Moms Christmas,” two highly-anticipated sequels. It’s a highly competitive time of year, as studios are angling to get their films into multiplexes in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.

The first “Daddy’s Home” grossed $240.4 million globally despite being released in the shadow of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” The combination of a Ferrell and Wahlberg has been potent commercially — the pair also headlined “The Other Guys,” a 2010 hit.

Preview Marky Mark’s “Wahlburgers” Air Jordan collab.

Jordan Brand’s newest silhouette, the Formula 23, serves as the base sneaker for Mark Wahlberg’s first Air Jordan collab which he has dedicated to his family’s restaurant chain and A&E show “Wahlburgers.”

Marky Mark first alluded to the Jordan collab during an episode of Wahlburgers when the actor/producer/businessman/sneaker collector paid a visit to Nike’s Beaverton, Oregon headquarters to work on the upcoming model with a team of designers and Nike employees.

The special edition Wahlburgers x Jordan Formula 23 sneaker, a shoe that draws on inspiration from the Air Jordan 10 and 11, will likely be an exclusive pair for promotional purposes, therefore it’s unlikely they’ll be releasing in stores.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Actor and producer Mark Wahlberg, former NFL and MLB All-Star and Heisman Trophy winner Bo Jackson, and Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian of all time, are among the early list of star-studded celebrities from the sports and entertainment world who will be playing in the Annexus Pro-Am at the Waste Management Phoenix Open on Wednesday, Feb. 1, at TPC Scottsdale’s Stadium Course starting at 8:30 a.m.

Wahlberg is one of the most recognized actors and producers in Hollywood and has appeared in blockbuster movies such as A Perfect Storm, Boogie Nights, The Departed, Lone Survivor and the recently released Patriots Day. He also has served as executive producer of four HBO hit series including Entourage, Boardwalk Empire, How to Make it in America and Ballers.

Considered by many to be one of the greatest athletes of all time, Jackson earned the 1985 Heisman Trophy while playing running back at Auburn, and went on to become a two-sport professional athlete, earning league All-Star recognition in both the National Football League with the Oakland Raiders and in Major League Baseball for the Kansas City Royals. He also is widely known for his endorsement with Nike and his famous “Bo Knows” campaign.

Phelps is considered the greatest Olympic athlete of all time thanks in part to his record 28 overall medals, including a record 23 gold medals. He is coming off of his fifth Olympic Games in Rio, where he added six more medals, including five gold medals, to his record medal count. The Scottsdale resident will be making his second appearance in the Annexus Pro-Am (2013).

Tee times for the Annexus Pro-Am will range from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Exact tee times for participants will be announced on Tuesday, Jan. 31 on wmphoenixopen.com, along with a complete list of celebrities and PGA TOUR players in the field.

The 2017 Waste Management Phoenix Open, also known as “The Greatest Show on Grass,” and “The People’s Open”, will be held Jan. 30 – Feb 5, 2017, at TPC Scottsdale. The Waste Management Phoenix Open is the best-attended golf tournament in the world and has gained legendary status for being the most unique stop on the PGA TOUR. Last year’s tournament broke three attendance records, including a PGA TOUR record 618,365 fans for the week. The 2017 edition will mark the 82nd playing of the event (one of the five oldest events on the PGA TOUR) and the eighth as the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The Thunderbirds were founded in 1937 with the mission of promoting the Valley of the Sun through sports. The Thunderbirds consist of 55 “active” members and more than 250 “life” members. Last year The Thunderbirds raised a record $9.3 million for charity and have eclipsed $111 million in charitable giving since its inception.

“So many reasons to love this video – but to be a performer standing next to another performer, as gracious and cool as Jon Bon Jovi is, and to be up close to see how humbled he was by the fans/the song/the moment – made this experience all that much better. So many successful artists lose a little bit of their humility – Jon BonJovi clearly has not. Great artist, but a better guy! That’s what truly makes someone a #Legend in my book.” – Donnie Wahlberg

Talk about killing two birds with one stone. Mark Wahlberg, alongside brothers Donnie and Paul simultaneously brought their burger concept, Wahlburgers, to Hollywood this week andannounced that their chain it will expand to Asia in 2017 through a joint venture with Cachet Hospitality Group (CHG). The first three restaurants are slated to open in Hangzhou, Wuhan, and Shanghai, China.

“We’re excited about this wonderful opportunity to grow in Asia,” said Wahlburgers CEO Rick Vanzura. “Having a savvy, financially strong partner is essential and we have a great partner in the Cachet Hospitality Group, which will bring an unprecedented level of service and strength to the Wahlburgers brand. Cachet is dedicated to family, community and, of course, bringing diverse groups of people together through great food – the very same values that drive Wahlburgers. Thanks to Cachet, we already have our first confirmed restaurant projects outside of North America, and we look forward to making history together.”

The Cachet Hospitality Group (CHG), an international hospitality branding and management company based in Hong Kong, is well known in the region for excellence and a growing focus on social responsibility. According to CEO Alexander Mirza, “This is an excellent time to enter the Asia market, especially China, where dramatic growth in US-style destination malls with increasing space committed to restaurants as mall owners see both traffic and income rise dramatically….This combines perfectly with the explosive popularity of international restaurant brands in China’s malls and airports, opening the door to tremendous opportunity for Wahlburgers and our Asia Pacific joint venture.”

Based on the lure of Wahlburgers, CHG has signed major agreements with developers who have committed to including Wahlburgers restaurants in their projects. World Packaging Center, an existing CHG developer, agreed to sign the first restaurant in Hangzhou. Shanghai-based naked Hub has agreed to open 20 Wahlburgers in their office building complexes throughout Shanghai and Hong Kong.

Nick Lachey and Donnie Wahlberg are teaming up again, but this time they’re bringing their boy bands to the small screen.

The 98 Degrees frontman stopped by PEOPLE Now to talk about his new TV project with the New Kids on the Block member, a comedy inspired by their former boy bands reuniting later in life and the struggles that come along with it.

“We put our heads together and said, ‘This sounds like a great show,’ ” says Lachey. “There’s a lot of material there that’s pretty comedic, and it will be a lot of fun.”

Although the show is still in its beginning stages, Entourage creator Doug Ellin is working on the script so they can cast and shoot a pilot.

“I’m very excited about it, I expect big things,” Lachey shares, teasing that “there’ll be a lot more to talk about later this year.”

On top of the humorous element to the show, the father of three with wife Vanessa wants audiences to know that being in a boy band isn’t a piece of cake.

“A lot of times there’s misconceptions about boy bands and sometimes people tend to discount the talent of a boy band — ‘Ah, it’s just fluff. It’s nothing,’ ” he says. “But when you’re in a boy band, it’s like being in any other band. You work your ass off. There’s a lot of hard work that goes into it; there’s a lot of talent that’s out there on that stage.”

He continues, “Then to come back and do it later in life, it’s crazy it’s a whole other set of challenges. I’m just excited for people to see that world.”

Although Lachey says both New Kids on the Block and 98 Degrees have big plans this year, including a New Kids on the Block tour with Paula Abdul and Boyz II Men this summer, the groups may reunite on the road once again.

“There’s always a chance,” Lachey teases. “As long as we enjoy performing together, which we do, I don’t see any reason to stop.”

Blue Bloods star and two Victoria’s Secret Angels will headline two extravagant Super Bowl parties, organizers of the 14th Annual Leather & Laces extravaganza announced on Friday.

Donnie Wahlberg, an original member of New Kids on the Block and a star of the CBS police series Blue Bloods, will co-host the Leather & Laces party with his wife, actress Jenny McCarthy, and special guest NASCAR racer Kyle Busch on February 3 at Hughes Manor on Washington Avenue.

The models are among the select group known as “angels” because they don wings to walk the runway in lingerie at the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show.

The Leather & Laces party, which debuted during Super Bowl XXVIII in Houston in 2004, has become such a hot ticket that organizers now hold two parties on the Friday and Saturday nights before the big game. Past party hosts have included Jeremy Piven, Kim Kardashian, Alessandra Ambrosio, Nicole Scherzinger, Emily Ratjkowski, Jamie Chung, Bar Refaeli, and Kevin Dillon.

Tickets range from $375 to $20,000 for a celebrity cabana for the February 3 party; and from $450 to $25,000 for a celebrity cabana for the February 4 party. For more information, visit leatherandlaces.com.

“Patriots Day” star Mark Wahlberg discusses the New England Patriots playoff game this Saturday and if they return to the Super Bowl it may be a family affair. Wahlberg says, “My sons are excited and my wife now has thrown her hat in the ring and she demanded with Mr. Kraft [New England Patriots owner] in the room that she’d be able to go to the Super Bowl because I always say that it’s a boy only thing, because you can’t be late for the Super Bowl.” He adds, “Now that my sons play football, she’s obsessed with the game.”
