Check out the official Instant Family Trailer starring Mark Wahlberg! Let us know what you think!
US Release Date: November 16, 2018
Starring: Rose Byrne, Mark Wahlberg, Isabela Moner
Directed By: Sean Anders
Synopsis: A couple finds themselves in over their heads when they adopt three children.
When Pete (Mark Wahlberg) and Ellie (Rose Byrne) decide to start a family, they stumble into the world of foster care adoption. They hope to take in one small child but when they meet three siblings, including a rebellious 15 year old girl (Isabela Moner), they find themselves speeding from zero to three kids overnight. Now, Pete and Ellie must hilariously try to learn the ropes of instant parenthood in the hopes of becoming a family. INSTANT FAMILY is inspired by the real events from the life of writer/director Sean Anders and also stars Octavia Spencer, Tig Notaro and Margo Martindale.
On paper, this entire scenario sounds a bit wacky and far-fetched. But the basic concept is based on true events that happened to Anders and his wife, Beth Anders.
And if you don’t believe that, in addition to the trailer above, there’s also a featurette that focuses on the true story that inspired the film on dedicated video websites.
This is Wahlberg’s second film of 2018, but it certainly looks a lot lighter than the ultra-violent Mile 22.
The Daddy’s Home films have been box office hits, so it’s likely Instant Family will fare a bit better with audiences than Mile 22. And having Rose Byrne in your movie is never a bad thing.
