Watch the new Bad Santa 2 red band teaser trailer, starring Billy Bob Thornton! Bad Santa 2 is coming to theatres November 23, 2016.
BAD SANTA 2 returns Academy Award®-winner BILLY BOB THORNTON to the screen as America’s favorite anti-hero, Willie Soke. Fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, Willie teams up once again with his angry little sidekick, Marcus (TONY COX), to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve. Along for the ride is ‘the kid’ – chubby and cheery Thurman Merman (BRETT KELLY), a 250-pound ray of sunshine who brings out Willie’s sliver of humanity.
Mommy issues arise when the pair are joined by Academy Award®, Golden Globe and Emmy-winner KATHY BATES, as Willie’s horror story of a mother, Sunny Soke. A super butch super bitch, Sunny raises the bar for the gang’s ambitions, while somehow lowering the standards of criminal behavior. Willie is further burdened by lusting after the curvaceous and prim Diane, played by Emmy Award-nominee CHRISTINA HENDRICKS, the charity director with a heart of gold and libido of steel.
Christina attended the Los Angeles premiere of The Neon Demon, at ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome in Hollywood, California (June 14). The Neon Demon is set to be released in theaters on June 24th (USA).
I have added some photos of Christina attending the Hap and Leonard premiere at Teatros Luchana in Madrid, Spain (May 12).

Tim Roth, Christina Hendricks Confirmed as Stars of Western ‘Tin Star’
LONDON — “The Hateful Eight’s” Tim Roth and “Mad Men’s” Christina Hendricks have been confirmed as the stars of Western miniseries “Tin Star,” which has been commissioned by European pay TV operator Sky. The show has been penned by Rowan Joffe and is being produced by Kudos.
“Tin Star” tells the story of Jim Worth, a former London police detective who has moved with his family to the Rocky Mountains to start a new life as a local police chief in an idyllic rural community. When his small town is overrun by migrant workers from a massive new oil refinery, the wave of drugs, prostitution and organized crime that follows them threatens to sweep away everything in its wake.
When Jim makes a stand, his act appears to prompt mysterious assassins to unleash sudden and violent retribution on him and his family; the resulting tragedy irrevocably shattering the peace they had found in this once perfect mountain idyll and transforming their remote sanctuary into a hellish and inescapable prison.
Commissioned for Sky by head of drama Anne Mensah, commissioning editor Cameron Roach and director of Sky Atlantic Zai Bennett, “Tin Star” is executive produced by Alison Jackson and Kudos CEO Diederick Santer, and produced by Matt Strevens for Kudos. International distribution is to be handled by Endemol Shine Intl. and Sky Vision.

Christina Hendricks on Playing Hap and Leonard’s Femme Fatale and Perfecting a Southern Accent
After Mad Men, Christina Hendricks jumped right into another period piece, called, fittingly, Another Period (Comedy Central). She’s back at it as femme fatale Trudy in pulpy ’80s crime drama Hap and Leonard, premiering March 2 on the Sundance Channel. At the show’s premiere party, Hendricks took a moment to tell Vulture what drew her to the role and how she perfected that Southern accent.
How hard was it to find a series to follow up a phenomenon like Mad Men?
As soon as we wrapped, I went right into doing Another Period. I guess it was a palate cleanser, and I was such a huge fan of [creators and co-stars] Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome that it was a no-brainer. I was also like, “I would love to be distracted and not sit around and think about how I’m not on Mad Men anymore.” But after Another Period, I had every intention of taking a break, and my manager sent me Hap and Leonard and said, “I know you want a break, but just read this.” I did, and I wanted to play Trudy so bad. I couldn’t deny it. I didn’t want someone else to get to do it. I wanted to do it. I didn’t have some big plan or grand, mapped-out situation. I got it, I loved it, I wanted to do it, and so I did.
What did you respond to so strongly about Trudy?
When I read a script and the character jumps off the page and jumps into me in a way that I feel like I can contribute, that I can have a voice in it — I can always tell because I start acting it out in my head, instead of trying to fix it. It just comes so naturally. She was so well-written and such an unusual character. She’s playful and sassy, but in a different way than the characters that I’ve been playing recently that I was excited by her.
Trudy lures her ex-boyfriend Hap (James Purefoy) into a dangerous scheme over the objections of his best friend Leonard (Michael K. Williams). Is she trustworthy or trouble?
Oh, she is so not trustworthy!
You were born in Knoxville, Tennessee, moved to Twin Falls, Idaho, then went to high school in Fairfax, Virginia. Did Hap and Leonard reconnect you to your Southern roots?
This environment is so unlike my Northern Virginia experience. I have a lot of relatives in Georgia, although that accent is very different. I always consider myself as having family from the South. I did work really hard on Trudy’s accent. I wanted it to be specific to the area, so I had to make sure to not listen to my relatives in my head. I didn’t want to just copy my grandma or my aunt. I had so much fun doing it, I probably took about two weeks to shake it when I got home. My husband [Madam Secretary’s Geoffrey Arend] said, “You know you don’t actually talk like that, right?”
Christina attended the Hap and Leonard private premiere party at Hill Country BBQ in New York City (February 25). Hap and Leonard premieres March 2nd at 10/9c on SundanceTV.
