The ‘Fatman’ trailer has arrived and it shows Mel Gibson as an unconventional Santa Claus.

Saban Films has dropped the first official trailer for Eshom and Ian Nelms’ upcoming action-comedy film ‘Fatman.’

The dark action-comedy features Mel Gibson, as a whole different kind of Santa Claus who is being hunted by a highly-skilled assassin (Walton Goggins).


‘Fatman’ is about a 12-year-old brat who receives a lump of coal in his stocking and decides to hire a trained hitman to kill Chris Cringle aka Santa Claus, whose “business” is in such decline that he’s become bitter, broke, and alcoholic. Due to which, he is forced into a partnership with the U.S. military as he gets locked into a deadly battle of wits against the assassin.

“I’ve come for your head, fatman!” warns Goggins’ assassin in the trailer.

“You think you’re the first?!” shoots back Father Christmas. “You think I got this job because I’m fat and jolly?”


The new trailer for this bizarre and unsettling take on Santa Claus also has gunfights, menacing reindeer, a broken-down sleigh, and gluttonous elves.

Written and directed by Eshom Nelms and Ian Nelms, the film also stars Marianne Jean-Baptiste.

The Rated-R film is produced by Fortitude International and Mammoth Films.


Fatman arrives in select theaters on November 13, 2020, followed by on-demand and digital four days later.
