First Short Teaser Trailer for 'Bad Santa 2' Starring Billy Bob Thornton
"This November, the legend gets back to work." Broad Green Pictures has debuted the first teaser trailer for Bad Santa 2, the sequel to the holiday comedy Bad Santa (2003), starring Billy Bob Thornton as an alcoholic Santa Clause impersonator who uses his cover to pull off large scale robberies. What is he up to some 13 years later? Apparently more of the same. This teaser doesn't really show much, it's mostly meant to remind people that this sequel exists and is (supposedly) still hitting theaters later this year. The rest of the cast not seen in this teaser includes Tony Cox (his sidekick/accomplice from the first movie), Kathy Bates, Christina Hendricks, Brett Kelly and Ryan Hansen. If you're curious about this, have a look.
Another adventure with Santa impersonator Willie Stokes. Sequel to the 2003 comedy Bad Santa, starring Billy Bob Thornton. Bad Santa 2 is directed by American filmmaker Mark Waters, of Freaky Friday, Mean Girls, Just Like Heaven, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, Mr. Popper's Penguins and Vampire Academy previously. The screenplay is credited to Shauna Cross, Doug Ellin, John Phillips and Johnny Rosenthal. In an interview with Metro, Thornton said: "Some of the nasty stuff is even nastier, but this one has more heart — even compared to the heart of the first one, which did have a beating heart. It went to both extremes a little more. We have a couple scenes that you could put in On the Waterfront." Whatever that means, we'll find out soon enough. Bad Santa 2 arrives in theaters starting November 23rd this fall. Who wants more?
