WATCH: Walton Goggins is trying to kill Mel Gibson’s Santa Claus in trailer for Fatman

October 8th, 2020 by Marc Comments

I what has to be the craziest movie idea we’ve heard in a while, Walton Goggins and Mel Gibson are putting Santa’s head on the chopping block.

What happens when Santa delivers a piece of coal to a spoiled, wealthy kid with a thirst for blood? Well, the kid calls a hitman to kill Santa, of course.

Check out the trailer below and the best bit? This looks great!

To save his declining business, Chris Cringle (Mel Gibson), 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 (Walton Goggins), 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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
