I believed I had seen each single doable permutation of the Die Arduous method — or a minimum of I had exhausted my need to see any additional permutations. However then got here Violent Night time. Which is mainly Die Arduous on Christmas — effectively, okay Die Arduous was Die Arduous on Christmas, that’s true. However this Die Arduous on Christmas truly options Santa Claus within the John McClane position.
And we’re not speaking, like, a mall Santa who has to avoid wasting the mall the place he works after it will get overrun by terrorists. Now, that is the legit, lives-in-the-North-Pole, hangs-with-flying-reindeer Santa. He’s performed by David Harbour and he is able to kick some butt — and since the film is produced by the identical firm that gave us John Wick, Atomic Blonde, and No person, he’s going to do it in inventively violent and bloody vogue. (The gag with the sharpened sweet cane … ouch.)
I can not think about anybody not eager to see this film from the outline alone however when you want extra convincing right here is the trailer:
Right here is the movie’s official synopsis:
From 87North, the bare-knuckle producers of No person, John Wick, Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2, Bullet Prepare and Quick & Livid Presents: Hobbs & Shaw comes a coal-dark vacation action-comedy that claims it’s best to all the time guess on crimson. When a workforce of mercenaries breaks right into a rich household compound on Christmas Eve, taking everybody inside hostage, the workforce isn’t ready for a shock combatant: Santa Claus (David Harbour, Black Widow, Stranger Issues sequence) is on the grounds, and he’s about to point out why this Nick is not any saint.
The alternatives for unhealthy Christmas motion hero puns are actually infinite. Violent Night time will open in theaters on December 2. Ho ho ho.
