The ‘Bad Moms Christmas’ Red-Band Trailer Is More Naughty Than Nice
We’ve got a real men are from mars, women are from venus thing going on with our winter comedies in 2017. The trailer for Daddy’s Home 2 promises to continue the first film’s rivalry between a dad and step-dad by introducing their fathers to the equation. And now here’s the trailer for A Bad Moms Christmas, which does much the same thing for its gender. The characters from the first film, a surprise hit in 2016, return, but this time they’ve got their own moms in tow.
Mila Kunis’ mom is played by Christine Baranski. Kristen Bell’s mom is a particularly unhinged Cheryl Hines, and Susan Sarandon is perfectly cast to play Kathryn Hahn’s terrible mother. Here’s the official plot synopsis:
A BAD MOMS CHRISTMAS follows our three under-appreciated and over-burdened women as they rebel against the challenges and expectations of the Super Bowl for moms: Christmas. And if creating a more perfect holiday for their families wasn’t hard enough, they have to do all of that while hosting and entertaining their own mothers. By the end of the journey, our moms will redefine how to make the holidays special for all and discover a closer relationship with their mothers.
The first Bad Moms turned a simple hook and a good cast into big box office; Bad Moms is not only the biggest hit in the history of its distributor, STX Entertainment, it made almost three times as much money as any other film they’ve ever released (and more than the next three highest grossing films in the company’s history combined). A Bad Moms Christmas has another instantly understandable premise (just look at the title) and it’s amped up the cast with more big names. In the war between this and Daddy’s Home 2, I’d bet on the moms reigning supreme.
