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.
While there’s no plot yet known for this sequel, the first one saw Billy Bob Thornton star as miserable conman Willie, with him and his partner posing as Santa and his Little Helper to rob department stores on Christmas Eve. Naturally, they run into problems.
This time, the director is Mark Waters, who’s made nothing I’ve ever wanted to see, and the cast includes Kathy Bates, Tony Cox, 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 is released in the UK on November 25th, just two days after the US get it, but either way, I can’t wait for it.
