We already knew that Mel Gibson I planned to play a Santa claus unconventional in Fatman (literally “Fat Man”), but the first trailer released by Saban Films it has caught us totally unprepared.
And it is that we are before an action comedy with heavy doses of dark humor in which a 12-year-old boy who receives a lump of coal for Christmas decides to exact revenge and hires a murderer to (Walton Goggins) to take out Santa Claus (Gibson).
At the same time, the “businessSanta’s has reached such a decline that the iconic character has become a bitter alcoholic. But drunk or not, Gibson seems more than willing to face his opponent in an orgy of violence – and he responds to Goggins’ threats by claiming that he is nowhere near the first to claim his head, so he had better not err. Shot.
Check out the trailer here:
Judging from the trailer, there is no doubt that Gibson’s Santa has seen better times: “I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, I’ve lost my influence”, complains.
“All I have left is disgust towards a world that has forgotten”.
Something that confirms the peculiar official synopsis of Fatman:
“To save his declining business, Chris Cringle (Mel Gibson), also known as Santa Claus, is forced to sign an agreement with the US Army. And last but not least, he finds himself locked in a deadly wrestling match with a skilled professional assassin (Walton Goggins), hired by a precocious 12-year-old boy who received a lump of coal for Christmas.”.
This unusual Christmas ribbon is signed by the brothers Ian y Eshom Nelms (A new beginning), and while all the performers shown in the trailer seem to take it very seriously, it seems clear that the writers and directors are fully aware of the ridiculousness and irony of its premise … starting with its main cast.
And we cannot forget that Gibson is, to this day, the last Hollywood actor that we would associate with the Christmas spirit. On the contrary, Goggins is perfectly chosen to assassinate Santa Claus. Choosing Marianne Jean-Baptiste reinforces the comic seriousness of the story, while the little Chance Hurstfield He demonstrates an atypical confidence and character for his age – which is ideal for his villainous character.
But back to Gibson: it is inevitable that, every time the 64-year-old New Yorker releases a film, the media will remember his anti-Semitic tirades of 2006 and the racist comments that came to light in 2010. That said, for anyone who can separate Citizen Gibson from filmmaker and actor, we are undoubtedly still facing one of the great marshes of Hollywood (see if not the recent Force of nature).
Fatman will creep down the chimney of a few American rooms next November 13, before landing on digital platforms the November 17. Its release date in Spain has yet to be defined.
On the other hand, it should be remembered that Gibson is preparing two promising releases scheduled for 2022: a remake of Wild group for Warner Bros., and the sequel The Passion of Christ: Resurrection.
