It’s been 13 years since audiences first met Willie Soke, the cheap whiskey-drinking, grouchy and inappropriate con who dressed as Saint Nick to steal money. Now, Billy Bob Thornton returns to reprise his role in the sequel, “Bad Santa 2.”

This time around, Willie (Thornton) teams up once again with his angry sidekick Marcus (Tony Cox) to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve. Along for the ride is chubby and cheery Thurman Merman (Brett Kelly), a 250-pound ray of sunshine who brings out Willie’s sliver of humanity.

In the NSFW trailer released by Miramax and Broad Green Pictures, Willie remains the same mean-tempered guy with mommy issues looking to make an easy buck. Kathy Bates reprises her role as Sunny Soke and Christina Hendricks co-stars as the charity director who Willie lusts after.

The sequel is directed by Mark Waters. Johnny Rosenthal, Doug Ellin and Shauna Cross penned the script.
