David Harbour Is a Ruthless Santa Claus in ‘Violent Night’ Trailer (Video)

The Christmas action-comedy premieres in theaters Dec. 2

You better watch out… and you probably will cry, as David Harbour’s viscious-looking Santa is coming to town.

Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for the upcoming holiday action-comedy film, “Violent Night.” The story follows a team of mercenaries who break into a wealthy family’s compound on Christmas Eve, taking them hostage, forcing Harbour’s Santa Claus to — violently — save the day.

Though the “Stranger Things” star dons the classic red hat and suit, it’s clear that this Santa is no saint, as the trailer also shows him drinking at a bar, beating someone with a billiard-stuffed sock, using a Christmas star as a stab weapon and more.

Alongside Harbour as Santa Claus, the film stars John Leguizamo, Beverly D’Angelo, Alexis Louder, Cam Gigandet, André Eriksen, Edi Patterson and Alex Haskell.

Tommy Wirkola directs from a script by Pat Casey and Josh Miller. David Leitch and Kelly McCormick of 87North Productions are producers.

The film premieres in theaters Dec. 2.
