This Christmas Santa Is Bringing A VIOLENT NIGHT

Holiday-themed genre fare is always a good time – and this new one heading our way this holiday season from Universal is looking like it might be ready to spread some cheer – and blood.

It stars fan favorite David Harbour – and we got the key art to prove it.

The press release rolls out all the details:

To hell with “all is calm.”

From 87North, the bare-knuckle producers of NobodyJohn WickAtomic BlondeDeadpool 2 and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw comes a coal-dark holiday thriller 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 WidowStranger 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), Edi Patterson (The Righteous Gemstones), Cam Gigandet (Without Remorse), Alex Hassell (Cowboy Bebop), Alexis Louder (The Tomorrow War) and Beverly D’Angelo (National Lampoon’s Vacation 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 and Josh Miller, the writers of Sonic the Hedgehog.
