LOS ANGELES (January 9, 2017) – Billy Bob Thornton, Tony Cox and Brett Kelly reunite in Bad Santa 2, the funniest, raunchiest and most inappropriate film of the year, due for release on EST on February 14 and 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and VOD February 21. Fueled by cheap whiskey and greed, Willie Soke (Academy Award®-winner* Billy Bob Thornton), teams up once again with his angry sidekick, Marcus (Tony Cox), to knock off a Chicago charity run by curvaceous Diane (Christina Hendricks). But the arrival of Willie’s horror story of a mother, Sunny (Academy Award-winner Kathy Bates), and “the kid” – Thurman Merman (Brett Kelly) – may upset their plan.
