Fatman Trailer Starring Mel Gibson: Santa Claus vs. A Hitman


When it comes to family-friendly Christmas movies, there should be no shortage available on Netflix this holiday season (including Kurt Russell returning to play Santa Claus in The Christmas Chronicles 2). However, if you’re looking for something a little more dark and twisted, well it seems like Saban Films has you covered as well. Fatman stars Mel Gibson as a slightly bitter Chris Cringle, who is contemplating retirement when a kid hires a hitman to take him out after receiving a lump of coal in his stocking. That hitman is played by none other than Walton Goggins. Are you sold yet? Directed by Eshom and Ian Nelms (Small Town Crime), Fatman hits select theatres on Nov. 13th before arriving on VOD on Nov. 17th. Check out the trailer below and see what you think.
