FATMAN trailer – Mel Gibson is Santa Claus, and Walton Goggins is trying hard to kill him

So just imagine that Santa Claus is a bitter old drunk, brought out of retirement in a way by the military… and he’s played by Mel Gibson. Now imagine Walton Goggins as a hitman hired (by a kid no less) to kill Santa. The end result is FATMAN, a sort of dark comedy written and directed by Eshom Nelms and Ian Nelms. The cast also features the highly underrated Marianne Jean-Baptiste. Check out the trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

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.

FATMAN is supposed to open in theaters on November 13, 2020 and then hits On Demand and Digital on November 17, 2020… just in time for the Holidays!
