It REALLY does matter if you’re naughty or nice as David Harbour brings us an ass-kicking Santa in Universal Pictures Violent Night.
If you’re looking for someone to be an unlikely action hero, you’d never think of Santa Claus. He is all-good, isn’t he? With his jolly laugh and big white beard, he wouldn’t hurt a fly, would he? WRONG! Coming this December, David Harbour is bringing us a shocking new version of old Saint Nick in the Universal black comedy/ action thriller ‘Violent Night.’ This Santa isn’t taking any prisoners as he despatches a group of mercenaries in various nasty ways. The first trailer for the film has been released. Be warned though, the trailer contains some nasty scenes that kids will get seriously upset over:
A team of elite mercenaries breaks into a wealthy family compound on Christmas Eve, taking everyone inside hostage. But the team isn’t prepared for a surprise combatant: Santa Claus. Kringle is on the grounds, and he’s about to show why this Nick is no saint.
Alongside David Harbour as Santa Claus, the film features John Leguizamo as Ben, the leader of the mercenaries. Beverly D’Angelo, Alex Hassell, Alexis Louder, Edi Patterson, Cam Gigandet, and André Eriksen.
We are in for a not-so-silent night on December 2nd when Santa Claus has a very ‘Violent Night’ in theaters.
Will you be going to see the film? Do you think it looks completely crazy? Or do you think the thought of Santa as an action hero anger you? Steer your Reindeer down to the comments section to leave us your thoughts!
