To hell with “all is calm.” 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) is on the grounds, and he’s about to show why this Nick is no saint. From razor-edged Norwegian director Tommy Wirkola and SONIC THE HEDGEHOG writers Pat Casey and Josh Miller, this coal-dark holiday thriller features John Leguizamo, Edi Patterson, Cam Gigandet, Alex Hassell, Alexis Louder, and Beverly D’Angelo.
