Alright this has to be the craziest film to come this year and in a year like this, why the hell not? Mel Gibson is a less than jolly Santa Clause and he’s waging war with Walter Goggins who has it out for him in the insane new film called fittingly enough FATMAN. Check out the new trailer and poster below!
To save his declining business, Chris Cringle, also known as Santa Claus, is forced into a partnership with the U.S. military. Making matters worse, Chris gets locked into a deadly battle of wits against a highly skilled assassin, hired by a precocious 12-year-old after receiving a lump of coal in his stocking. ‘Tis the season for Fatman to get even, in the action-comedy that keeps on giving.
Written and directed by the Nelms Brothers (Small Town Crime), Eshom and Ian Nelms, Fatman also stars Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Secrets & Lies).
So if you thought Kurt Russell’s portrayal of Old St. Nick in that Netflix flick was a radical departure, wait till you get a load of Gibson. Not for the kiddies for sure but I think I’m gonna have a lot of fun with it. “It’s the season to get even” everyone!
FATMAN will hit theaters on November 13 ahead of its VOD and digital releases on November 17.
