A few weeks ago, we saw our first look at Bad Santa 2 with a short teaser. Now, there’s a full trailer that captures the true essence and drunken Christmas spirit of Billy Bob Thornton’s Willie Soke. Watch above.
Mean Girls director Mark Waters helms the follow-up to Terry Zwigoff’s 2003 blockbuster comedy. Tony Cox, Brett “Thurman Merman” Kelly, and Octavia Spencer return alongside newcomers Kathy Bates, Christina Hendricks, and Ryan Hansen.
Here’s the official synopsis:
“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.”
Bad Santa 2 arrives November 23rd.
