From director Farhad Safinia; starring Mel Gibson, Sean Penn, Steve Coogan and Natalie Dormer, The Professor And The Madman is the origin story of the principal historical dictionary of the English language, the Oxford English Dictionary.

After Professor James Murray started the dictionary in the mid 19th century, he soon received more than 10,000 entries from Dr. William Minor. A man who happened to be a patient at Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum…

In all my years of appreciating the beauty of the English language, not once have I given a single thought to the founding of the English Dictionary. As a fan of words I sure hope this one is a tale even more interesting than this trailer suggests.

My fingers are also crossed that all the logophiles and lexicographers will have a good time.

Jennifer Ehle, Ioan Gruffudd, Jeremy Irvine, Aidan McArdle, Brendan Patricks, David Crowley and Kieran O’Reilly also star.

DADDY’S HOME 2 (2017): New Trailer From Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, Mel Gibson, John Lithgow, John Cena…

The first Daddy’s Home (2015) movie starring Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell and Linda Cardelilni featured a ‘cool biological dad versus new and not so cool stepdad’ dynamic between Ferrell and Wahlberg. For the Sean Anders directed sequel, the same dynamic remains, except this time Ferrell and Wahlberg’s characters are the best of friends but their dads played by Mel Gibson and John Lithgow are not quite that…

 

The original movie was OK and featured some memorable scenes. I’ll be tuning in this time for much of the same and hopefully more. I already love the kiss between Lithgow and Ferrell’s characters.

Daddy’s Home 2 Release Dates: November 10th, 2017 (US); November 22nd, 2017 (UK)…
