Bad Santa 2” will arrive just in time to put a little vinegar in America’s Christmas eggnog.

The sequel to the 2003 cult comedy will hit theaters on Nov. 23. That will put the film in the midst of the crowded Thanksgiving period, one of the busiest times of year for moviegoing. “Bad Santa 2” will head off against the second weekend of the “Harry Potter” spin-off “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” as well as the debuts of an untitled thriller with Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard, animated film “Moana,” and action film “The Great Wall.”

Broad Green Pictures is handling U.S. theatrical distribution for “Bad Santa 2” and will co-produce and co-finance the film with Miramax.

The picture brings back Billy Bob Thornton as the washed-up department store Santa/safe cracker, as well as Tony Cox and Brett Kelly, who reprise their roles as Thornton’s partner Marcus and the young man he mentors, respectively. Kathy Bates joins the cast as Thornton’s mother.

Mark Waters (“Mean Girls”) directs the film from a screenplay by Johnny Rosenthal, Doug Ellin and Shauna Cross

Weirdly cut trailer. The obvioulsy fake "wooo!" during the flashing scene really irks me. Either it's just a trailer, still very excited for this. Discovered Bad Santa not long ago and it was gold.

 

Hopefully this doesn't suffer the same disastrous fate as 99% of the other sequels this year.

I thought this would be terrible when I first heard about it. The first is a cult classic that can never be replicated.

But against all odds there's plenty in the first half of this trailer that made me laugh unlike Dumb And Dumber 2. It got worse towards the end but I think it has a chance to still be really funny.

Did someone collectively decide this is the year of untimely sequels? We have:

 

Zoolander 2: 15 years after Zoolander

My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2: 14 years after My Big Fat Greek Wedding

Barbershop 3: 12 years after Barbershop 2

Alice Through the Looking Glass: 6 years after Alice in Wonderland

Finding Dory: 13 years after Finding Nemo

Independence Day 2: 20 years after Independence Day

Jason Bourne: 9 years after The Bourne Supremacy

Bridget Jones 3: 12 years after Bridget Jones 2

Inferno: 7 years after Angels & Demons

Bad Santa 2: 13 years after Bad Santa

 

It's really weird.

Anchorman 2 did better than the original: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/search/?q=anchorman

 

Dumb and Dumber 2 also did ok: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/search/?q=dumber

 

All three of the movies are cult classics (Bad Santa to lesser extent), but I don't see this doing as well as the original. So I'll go with $35 million DOM
