Bad Santa 2 is on the way, and now we have a new teaser trailer. It doesn’t show us much, but what it does show us stays in, should we say, the spirit of the original.
It’s been forever since I’ve seen Bad Santa – it’s not really in my Yuletide movie rotation – but this has reignited the fire of cynicism and booze that colored the original so perfectly.
This time around, the story from director Mark Waters (Mean Girls) focuses on Billy Bob Thornton’s Willie Stokes and his mother (Kathy Bates) joining forces to rip off a holiday charity.
Bad Santa 2 opens November 23.
