In what could be an instant Christmas classic, David Harbour (Stranger Things) stars as Santa in a new movie from the producers of John Wick, Deadpool 2, and Bullet Train. This 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) is on the grounds, and he’s about to show why this Nick is no saint. Based on the action-packed trailer, there’s more than a few people on Santa’s naughty list this year.
