David Harbor is one of the busiest actors in the business. When he’s not filming Stranger Things or teasing the upcoming MCU movie Thunderbolts, he’s kicking ass and taking on names as Santa in the upcoming Christmas movie. violent night. Recently, the star opened up about what audiences should expect from this non-traditional Christmas movie and its delinquent Santa Claus.
David Harbour: Violent Night is like Die Hard and Miracle on 34th Street together
“It’s like two movies in one,” says Harbor of Violent Night. “Die Hard: Trapped in a house, mercenaries, vault underneath, $300 million; and then you have Miracle on 34th Street, and they just go together.” With both of these films serving as holiday classics, it’s clear that the influences, albeit opposing ones, have come for this Universal Pictures release.
His co-star John Leguizamo plays the film’s villain. Of Harbor’s take on Claus, he says, “This Santa is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. This Santa Claus has luggage.” This may have something to do with the 10,000 years that have passed since he started giving out toys.
“He creates this commercial, horrible world,” adds Harbour, “where kids just want more, more, more.” Sound familiar? Luckily, a little girl is still on the “Nice List” and when her life and her family’s life is in danger because of the money lying under their house, Santa Claus steps in to try and save the day.
From the producers of John Wick and Deadpool 2, this dark action comedy directed by Tommy Wirkola also stars Cam Gigandet, Alex Hassell, Alexis Louder, Edi Patterson and Beverly D’Angelo.
Violent Night hits theaters on December 2, 2022.
