Father Figures seems to be the forgotten movie. This movie has been around since 2016 (possibly earlier) but now the ‘bastards’ who want to know who their daddy is, will find out sooner than later.
Starring Owen Wilson and Ed Helms, as brothers who find out the man in the picture on their Mother’s mantlepiece, is not their Daddy.
Last September just when the movie was about to slide into oblivion Warner Bros. released the movies UK Trailer. They also gave the movie a new friendlier name changing from Bastards to Father Figures. That was 6 months ago everything went silent again, no second trailer, now it has been saved again.
Today we have a host of new clips which give us a taster in what we can expect when the movie is finally released later this month…
In the Alcon Entertainment comedy “FATHER FIGURES,” Owen Wilson (“The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Wedding Crashers”) and Ed Helms (“The Hangover” films, “We’re the Millers”) star as fraternal twins Kyle and Peter who accidentally discover they’ve been living with a lie all their lives. The kindly man in the photo on their mantle isn’t their father after all, but an invention their mother (Glenn Close) concocted to conceal the truth: that she actually doesn’t know who their real father is. See, it was the seventies, and things were crazy, and…well, you know.
Armed with only a handful of clues, the brothers resolve to find the mystery man in what results in a wild road trip of discovery and revelations—about their mother, themselves and each other.
Father Figures will be released in the UK and Ireland from 16th February. The movie also stars JK Simmons, Katt Williams, Ving Rhames, June Squibb, Christopher Walken and Harry Shearer.
