There have been many spins on Santa Clause in movies over the years, like Kurt Russell’s recent, absurdly cool Santa in The Christmas Chronicles, but Fatman definitely looks like it’s going to have a unique spin on the character. Mel Gibson is Santa aka Chris Cringle, a miserable and washed-up version of St. Nick who is forced to take a contract with the US military to keep his operation going. Meanwhile, a hitman, played by Walton Goggins, is hired by a young boy who got a lump of coal to kill Santa. It looks like a ridiculous action movie spin on the standard Santa/Christmas ideas and it’s out in select theaters on November 13th before being available digitally and On Demand on November 17th. Check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
