Fatman trailer: See Mel Gibson as angry violent Santa Claus
Mel Gibson is a broke, bitter, hard-drinking, gun-touting Santa Claus in the first trailer for the upcoming film Fatman.
"I don't know what I'm doing wrong, I've lost my influence," mourns Gibson's Father Christmas in the EW exclusive video above. "All I have is a loathing for a world that's forgotten."
In this dark action comedy, Chris Cringle's "business" is in decline so Santa enters into a partnership with the U.S. military for extra cash. Meanwhile, Santa gets "locked into a deadly battle of wits against a highly-skilled assassin (Walton Goggins), hired by a precocious 12-year-old who received a lump of coal in his stocking."
