Serving as the holiday themed sequel to the surprise studio comedy hit that was Bad Moms from 2016, A Bad Moms Christmas has already been announced for a November release date later this year. Written and directed by returning franchise co-creators Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the new movie will see its returning cast of all-star comic actors reprise their eponymous roles as the movie's bad moms - most notably including Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn.
Following the events depicted in Bad Moms, fans of last year's movie will be sure to want to get in on all of the misbehavior and sophomoric shenanigans soon to come in A Bad Moms Christmas - especially considering the fact that the new film from Lucas and Moore will include a roster of bad grandmas this time around (namely Susan Sarandon, Cheryl Hines, Christine Baranski). After the first film in the series made a grand total of $183.9 million on a budget of $20 million - making it the first motion picture distributed by STX Entertainment to cross the $100 million mark domestically - fans will want to make sure they see the new film in theaters later this November.
In the footage featured above, potential viewers of A Bad Moms Christmas can catch a sneak peek behind the curtain at everything that is soon to come in the motion picture proper by way of an official red band trailer. Based on all appearances, the new movie looks to be a more than willfully naughty holiday divergence for adult moviegoers to indulge once the holiday season gets into full swing - and should see fit to please moviegoers who enjoyed the first film in the franchise.
With the Bad Dads spinoff officially in the works, the Bad Moms comedy franchise looks to be evolving in an entirely unexpected way with the impending release of A Bad Moms Christmas. That being said, it remains to be seen whether or not Lucas and Moore will be able to perform the same comic trick twice and deliver a studio comedy sequel that is as deserving of praise as its immediate predecessor.
Last year, Bad Santa 2 woefully attempted to perform the same magic twice with an adult-oriented holiday comedy sequel, but didn't quite manage to recapture the magic of its immediate predecessor. On that note, here's to hoping that A Bad Moms Christmas fares a little better with its own built-in audience of viewers who loved the first film in the series.
