The Action Comedy Film ‘Violent Night’ Is Set To Release In December

Celebrate the holidays with a brand new twist: Violent Night-the action comedy film starring David Harbour from Stranger Things as Santa. While it might be tough to recognize some of Santa’s (aka, David’s) character traits in this darker and thrilling (but humorous nonetheless) take on things, it’s all in the spirit of Yuletide. The film will be released December 2nd by Universal Pictures and is expected to appeal to fans of holiday-themed cinema that includes classic movies such as Die Hard or Lethal Weapon. Violent Night is directed by Tommy Wirkola and helped in the scripting department by Pat Casey and Josh Miller. The film tells the story of a town that is terrorized by a sadistic Santa Claus. After being denied entrance into the houses of several children, he makes it his mission to punish the naughty in his own special way. To prepare for this role, David Harbour worked with a trainer for four months to get back in peak shape.

  • David Harbour as Santa Claus.
  • John Leguizamo as Ben.

  • Alex Hassell as Skyler Lightstone.
  • Alexis Louder as Margie Matthews.
  • Leah Brady as Trudy Lightstone.
  • Edi Patterson as Alva.
  • Ali Asghar Shah as a young elf.

Release Date:

The film is scheduled to be released on 2nd of December 2022.

What is the film about?

The film is about David Harbour, known for his role as Hopper on Stranger Things. This film is the first time that Harbour has portrayed the character of Santa. In this story, a group of criminals break into a house on Christmas Eve, where they take the family hostage. They are convinced that it will be an easy grab and grab. However, they soon learn that there is someone else in the house with them. It’s Santa Claus himself, who is out for revenge after being denied access to the homes of several children. He makes it his mission to dole out his own brand of punishment to those who deserve it most by punishing them himself during Christmas Eve.  It is the perfect story for families. It has a lot of suspense, action, and comedy intertwined together to make an enjoyable viewing experience. Not only that, but it will delight fans of Christmas films, who have already seen Die Hard and Lethal Weapon throughout their life.

What makes this film interesting?

There are a lot of things that make this movie so entertaining. The first is the way in which it tells its story. Instead of using candy canes and elves, the film focuses on more “edgy” themes. One example of this is the character of Santa himself, who takes matters into his own hands to dole out punishment to those he deems deserving. Another thing is the twist of having a Christmas themed movie released during an odd season instead of a more conventional one. What makes it even more interesting is that it has been announced for release during July instead, so people have a much longer time to wait for it than they would have had it been released during December, which will build up anticipation even further.

Who can watch this film?

Anyone who is a fan of action-adventure films will relish in Violent Night. This includes fans of Die Hard and Lethal Weapon, given the way that the film’s story is told. The film’s tone will cater to adults as well as children, given that it doesn’t involve candy canes or elves, like other stories featuring Santa Claus. The violence also makes this a film appropriate for adults, although there are some elements that may be too intense for younger viewers.
