Violent Night starring David Harbour still

Kris Kringle has his work cut out for him this Christmas defending a family from some naughty criminals in VIOLENT NIGHT with David Harbour as Santa Claus. We've had a bad Santa, but this gift-giver is a badass with an arsenal in his sack.

The film also stars John Leguizamo (JOHN WICK) and Cam Gigandet (TWILIGHT)

As evident in the new trailer, VIOLENT NIGHT's setting around Christmas and St. Nick will be ripe with one-liners, and a crazy good time which is why this trailer debut wins the week's pick.

Just take a look at the synopsis which includes so many puns, it's festive. VIOLENT NIGHT is in movie theaters on December 2.


To hell with “all is calm.”

From 87North, the bare-knuckle producers of NOBODY, JOHN WICK, ATOMIC BLONDE, DEADPOOL 2, BULLET TRAIN and FAST & FURIOUS PRESENTS: HOBBS & SHAW comes a coal-dark holiday action-comedy that says you should always bet on red.

When a team of mercenaries breaks into a wealthy family compound on Christmas Eve, taking everyone inside hostage, the team isn’t prepared for a surprise combatant: Santa Claus (David Harbour, Black Widow, Stranger Things series) is on the grounds, and he’s about to show why this Nick is no saint.

The film also stars Emmy winner John Leguizamo (John Wick), Cam Gigandet (Without Remorse), Alex Hassell (Cowboy Bebop), Alexis Louder (The Tomorrow War), Edi Patterson (The Righteous Gemstones) and Beverly D’Angelo (National Lampoon’sVacation franchise).

Directed by razor-edged Norwegian director Tommy Wirkola (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, Dead Snow franchise), Violent Night is produced by 87North’s Kelly McCormick David Leitch and Guy Danella. The original screenplay is by Pat Casey & Josh Miller, the writers of Sonic the Hedgehog. The film’s executive producer is Marc S. Fischer.

Universal Pictures will distribute the film in all territories.

Genre: Action Comedy

Cast: David Harbour, John Leguizamo, Cam Gigandet, Alex Hassell, Alexis Louder, Edi Patterson and Beverly D’Angelo
