We’ve hardly packed away the barbecue, or dumped the unused sun-cream under the sink and Christmas is upon us already! Did you know Santa has two beards? In new UK red Band Trailer for Bad Santa 2 ‘it’s none of your effin’ business’! Check out the trailer…
Everyone’s favourite anti-hero, scrooge Willie T.Soke and pardon the expression he’s hoping to do more than kiss mummy under the mistletoe! But he has one little problem the ‘Shitstick’ has to put up with his mum whom he greets in a unconventional way.
BAD SANTA 2 returns Academy Award®-winner BILLY BOB THORNTON to the screen as everyone’s favourite anti-hero, Willie Soke. Fuelled 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.
Who needs those heart rendering, upbeat Christmas movies we see year in year out when you have Bad Santa? It’s not a family caper (unless the kids are over 18) or light-hearted, saucy, potty-mouthed and a film your granny would have an angina attack if she watched. Having the traditional celebrations are absolutely fine but it’s good to celebrate in a other ways too, Yuletide depravity at it’s best! The question is can the film replicate or even beat the success of the first film?
With Kathy Bates as Willie’s equally potty mouthed Mum having a whale of a time, Christina Hendricks as the new love interest Willie’s unethical unsavoury mind will be in overdrive. With the pending robbery we can see Willie and Marcus falling out, Que the traditional family fisticuffs. If you loved the first one or looking for a harder edged festive movie this might do the trick!
Bad Santa 2 is coming to town in UK&Ireland 23rd November.
