Academy Award-winner Billy Bob Thornton slips down the chimney in the new full length red band trailer for Bad Santa 2. This age-restricted trailer gives us a closer look at the unusual relationship Willie Soke (Billy Bob Thornton) has with his volatile, foul-mouthed mother Sunny (Kathy Bates), as they team up to rob a charity. We also see more footage that showcases the naughty side of Christina Hendricks' Diane in this raucous new trailer.
Bad Santa 2 returns Academy Award-winner Billy Bob Thornton to the screen as America's favorite anti-hero, Willie Soke. Fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, Willie teams up once again with his angry little sidekick, Marcus (Tony Cox), to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve. Along for the ride is 'the kid' - chubby and cheery Thurman Merman (Brett Kelly), a 250-pound ray of sunshine who brings out Willie's sliver of humanity.
Mommy issues arise when the pair are joined by Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy-winner Kathy Bates, as Willie's horror story of a mother, Sunny Soke. A super butch super bitch, Sunny raises the bar for the gang's ambitions, while somehow lowering the standards of criminal behavior. Willie is further burdened by lusting after the curvaceous and prim Diane, played by Emmy Award-nominee Christina Hendricks, the charity director with a heart of gold and libido of steel. You better watch out: Bad Santa 2 is coming to town from Broad Green Pictures.
The supporting cast includes Ryan Hansen, Jenny Zigrino and Jeff Skowron. Mark Waters directs Bad Santa 2 from a screenplay by Johnny Rosenthal and Shauna Cross, based on characters by Glenn Ficarra & John Requa. Geyer Kosinski and Andrew Gunn produce. Executive producers are Zanne Devine, David Thwaites, Gabriel Hammond, Daniel Hammond, Mark Waters, Jessica Tuchinsky, Adam Fields, and Doug Ellin, who was once attached to direct.
The film is a Broad Green Pictures and Miramax release, set to hit theaters on November 23, just before the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. This comedy sequel will go up against Paramount's romantic thriller Allied, 20th Century Fox's dramatic comedy Rules Don't Apply and Disney's animated adventure Moana. Take a look at the new footage from Bad Santa 2, which should only be watched by viewers over the age of 18 due to plenty of R-rated language.
