Get into the Christmas spirit with the Fatman

It’s been a tough year (which is the understatement of the year) but with Christmas coming, it’s time to bring some festive spirit into our lives starting with the new Fatman film. 

Fatman, as you might guess, refers to Jolly Saint Nick. AKA Santa AKA a down-and-out Mel Gibson playing a real-life Father Christmas. 

And Fatman has run into some serious problems and is seriously lacking in Christmas spirit. Here’s the basic synopsis… 

“To save his declining business, Chris Cringle, also known as Santa Claus, is forced into a partnership with the U.S. military. Making matters worse, Chris gets locked into a deadly battle of wits against a highly-skilled assassin, hired by a precocious 12-year-old, after receiving a lump of coal in his stocking.”

This really isn’t your average Christmas cracker, however. Fatman has a dark but funny edge running through it. Which is actually the perfect tone for this year! 

Check out the trailer below! 

What we took away from that trailer is it’s a mix of Home Alone and Die Hard, which are two of the best Christmas films ever. Which means the DubaiLAD team can’t wait to see this! 

Fatman is released on November 26 courtesy of Empire Movies
