‘Bad Santa 2’ Red Band Trailer with Billy Bob Thornton

Billy Bob Thornton&Brett Kelly

Broad Green Pictures has released a new NSFW red band trailer along with an alternate green band trailer for Bad Santa 2, the sequel to 2003’s holiday comedy Bad Santa, starring Billy Bob Thornton as a whiskey-guzzling holiday Santa, Willie Soke, who uses his cover to pull off large scale robberies.

Directed by Mark Waters (Mean Girls), from the script written by Johnny Rosenthal, Doug Ellin, and Sauna Cross, the film co-stars Tony Cox as Willie’s elf-playing sidekick Marcus, joined by Willie’s mother Sunny (Kathy Bates) to rob a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve this time out.

Bad Santa 2, which also stars Christina Hendricks, Ryan Hansen, Jenny Zigrino, and Jeff Skowron, hit theaters November 23 — just in time for your Thanksgiving get-together. Plus Brett Kelly reprises his role as chubby and cheery Thurman Merman here, “a 250-pound ray of sunshine who brings out Willie’s sliver of humanity.”

You can watch the red-band trailer for Bad Santa 2 below, followed by an alternate green band trailer with more footage.

Love it! We need more trashy comedy like this, not those PG-13 comedies from Marvel.

Billy Bob Thornton&Tony Cox

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.
