Mel Gibson is known for his roles in flicks such as Braveheart and Mad Max, but he’s taking on a character even more iconic this time: Santa Claus.
The controversial 64-year-old is starring in a new dark comedy, Fatman, as Kris Kringle, a bitter businessman who is bummed out over the decline in Christmas spirit.
In the newly released trailer, Gibson’s character goes up against assassin Walton Goggins who is contracted by a 12-year-old to kill Santa after being put on the naughty list and gifted coal:
“I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, I’ve lost my influence. Maybe it’s time I retire the coat…All I have is a loathing for a world that’s forgotten.”
Ch-ch-check out the ridiculous trailer (below):
