Two years ago, 20 million people reportedly watched Kurt Russell don a red suit and beard to play Santa Claus in Netflix’s The Christmas Chronicles. Goldie Hawn, who is Russell’s real-life partner, cameoed as Mrs. Claus in that film, and now the couple have reunited for The Christmas Chronicles 2, which has been playing in some theaters in advance of its Netflix release this week.
Netflix has released a sneak peek clip which showcases the first two minutes of the new sequel, in which Deadpool 2 and The Hunt for the Wilderpeople actor Julian Dennison appears as Belsnickel, the movie’s scheming antagonist. Check it out below.

This Christmas, fans of Deadpool are getting an interesting new gift in the form of a PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2, the R-rated comic book sequel that has become such a success largely because 20th Century Fox allowed Ryan Reynolds to give the Merc with a Mouth his due diligence. But the studio loves raking in more cash, and if they can get families into theaters to give Deadpool a shot with a more tame cut of the comic book blockbuster, why not?
But what about fans who have already seen Deadpool 2? Is this going to be worth it for them to buy another ticket to a movie that has removed the profanity and blood, key selling points of the original version?

Much like its predecessor, Deadpool 2 is less a movie than a smirky, feature-length meme generator. Though the sequel has a new director and some new cast members, Deadpool 2 is unsurprisingly doubling down on what made the first film such a big hit, including jokes about exactly how big of a hit at the box office it was, as well as plenty of other fourth-wall-breaking moments.
