It’s the middle of August – the perfect time to start releasing trailers for Christmas! Here’s the first look at Billy Bob Thornton returning Willie alongside his sidekick Marcus (Tony Cox) in Bad Santa 2.

He’s joined by a whole host of stars that you wouldn’t necessarily expect to see including Kathy Bates, Octavia Spencer and Christina Hendricks. Freaky Friday director Mark Waters takes the helm as Director and as you’ll see from the trailer, this movie follows on nicely from the original film which is astonishingly 13 years old!

Bad Santa 2 will hits cinemas this coming Christmas.

Plot: Fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, Willie teams up once again with his angry little sidekick, Marcus, to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve.

The red band trailer below is very Not Safe for Work!
