Fatman, the dark action-comedy starring Mel Gibson as Santa Claus, won't be available to buy for naughty boys and girls in time for Christmas. Instead, it will arrive a month later on Blu-ray and DVD. When Chris Cringle leaves a lump of coal in one 12-year-old's stocking, the kid does what anyone in his position would do: hire a crazy hitman (Walton Goggins) to take out the North Pole's jolliest resident.
The film hails from the Nelms Brothers, whose Small Town Crime wowed audiences at SXSW in 2017. This one got decidedly mixed reviews, as most critics agreed it was a great premise poorly executed. Those who want to decide for themselves can get it right now from most digital rental services.
But for established fans and those who want to dive right in to this twisted Christmas tale, they can buy the film on January 26, 2021.
