Bad Santa 2 reminds me that I’ve never got round to seeing Bad Santa. We all have films we keep meaning to see – especially since I loved director Terry Zwigoff‘s 2001 movie Ghost World, and I can’t believe it’s thirteen years old. Then again, so was Finding Nemo, and I only saw that for the first time recently.
Now releasing a second Red Band trailer (i.e. plenty of strong language!), the plot centres around Willie (Billy Bob Thornton), fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, teaming up once again with his angry little sidekick, Marcus (Tony Cox), to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve.
This time, the director is Mark Waters, who’s made nothing I’ve ever wanted to see, and the cast includes Kathy Bates, Christina Hendricks and Brett Kelly, and I love how the hashtag on the poster is #ThisIsBS. Based on this teaser, I’m very much looking forward to this, and I’ll have to catch up with the original beforehand.
Bad Santa 2 has been brought forward in the UK to November 23rd, so it’s no longer two days behind the US – we get it on the same day!
