Fatman Official Trailer (2020) - Mel Gibson, Walton Goggins, Marianne Jean-Baptiste.
In this film, Chris Cringle (Mel Gibson) lives with his wife Ruth (Marianne Jean-Baptiste) and runs his Christmas present shop on a farm near the town of North Peak, Alaska. With his income on the decline because of too many children turning too vicious, the United States government, who maintains an interest share in Chris' business, sends Captain Jacobs (Robert Bockstael) to propose a two-month contract for producing components for a new jet fighter for the US military. The liasion agents override Chris' misgivings by virtually threatening to withhold the government's subsidies, but Ruth manages to restore his spirits.
On Christmas Eve, spoiled rich boy Billy Wenan (Chance Hurstfield) receives a lump of coal from Chris for his selfishness, and swearing revenge, he hires his personal hitman Jonathan Miller (Walton Goggins) to kill Chris. After some futile first attempts, Miller coerces a Postal Service supervisor to tell him Chris' address from the letters he receives every year from children around the world. Making his way to North Peak, he trails Chris to the farm, infiltrates the compound and kills all the US Army guards. He is discovered by one of the elf workers; the alarm is raised, and Jacobs manages to evacuate the workers at the cost of his own life, just before Miller blows up the shop.
Chris faces off against Miller and gains the upper hand, but Miller first wounds Chris with a leg-mounted spring blade and then shoots him in the eye, apparently killing him. Ruth intervenes and shoots Miller dead, and because he is essentially immortal, Chris recovers from his injuries. Backtracking Miller's assignment, he and Ruth pay a visit to Billy, warning him that from now on Chris will come for him (and any other kids) if they ever turn against their fellow human beings again. Afterwards, Chris, Ruth and the elf crew start rebuilding their workshop with renewed confidence.
