Bad Santa 2 Gets A Very Sweary Trailer As Well As A Not So Sweary One Bad Santa was a novel concept that ran pretty far with the swearing, drinking Santa schtick, and it grew a fanbase into what could arguably be called a ‘cult’ following. The series is making a return this Christmas with Bad Santa 2, and you can get your best look at it here with these two trailers. There is a very sweary, NSFW trailer up first, which seems to really be trying to ram home its crude comedy here. And I mean that. It is pretty vulgar.

Here’s Another Dirty Red Band Trailer for Bad Santa 2 Oh this one is dirty alright, in all the right ways you’d expect from a sequel to Bad Santa. But seriously, maybe don’t bring your kids to Bad Santa 2. Sequels to movies that came out more than a decade ago have not had the best of luck at the box office so far this […] Read Here’s Another Dirty Red Band Trailer for Bad Santa 2 on Filmonic.

It seems pretty silly that anyone would bother with releasing a green band trailer for Bad Santa 2 — it’s not as if this movie is for people who aren’t aware of what they’re getting into. The whole selling point is Billy Bob Thornton as a booze-drenched, foul-mouthed and utterly despicable (that’s seriously an understatement) crook who dresses up as Santa. Any pretense of propriety has been dropped with the release of the second red band trailer which is, somehow, more crass than the first. Continue reading…

Two of Hollywood’s biggest and rising stars will be joining forces later this year. Both Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are set to star in Passengers for Sony, and the film has an awards friendly release date to further boost expectations. Up until this point however, Sony has been slow to market the film, having only released a few images showing the two stars together in space.

Passengers Images: Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Pratt in Space Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are two of Hollywood’s hottest stars — and that’s not just a commentary on their good looks, either. Both actors have emerged as proven box office powerhouses that can juggle multiple successful franchises at a time. For Lawrence, The Hunger Games and X-Men have capitalized on her popularity.

Since 2003, Bad Santa has become a sort of holiday classic for people who don’t like holiday classics. This pitch-black comedy is everything Christmas movies aren’t supposed to be — crass and mean and completely twisted — which makes it all the more admirable that it manages to be kinda sweet as well. It’s a tricky balance, but one director Terry Zwigoff and writers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa pull off with aplomb.
