STXfilms has an early holiday gift for you, a new red band trailer for “A Bad Moms Christmas”. The adult comedy will hit theaters theaters in early November, bringing back the cast from the original installment, while adding a few famous faces. The new cast expanded to add the popular moms’ own mothers, who come by to visit around the holidays.

The film will feature Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Jay Hernandez, Cheryl Hines, Peter Gallagher, Justin Hartley, and David Walton. Also appearing in the film are Christine Baranski and Susan Sarandon. The film was written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, and produced by Suzanne Todd

“A Bad Moms Christmas” follows three under-appreciated and overburdened women as they rebel against the challenges and expectations of Christmas. While creating a perfect holiday for their families wasn’t hard enough to begin with, they have to do all of that while hosting and entertaining their own mothers. The studio teases the film adding, “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 installment was released in the summer of 2016, the film opened at number-three at the weekend box office with $24M behind “Star Trek: Beyond” and “Jason Bourne”. The comedy went on to make over $113M domestically, and almost $184M worldwide. You can watch the movie trailer below, but we should warn you that it’s not exactly safe for work.

“A Bad Moms Christmas” will hit theaters on November 3, 2017. Just like the first film, “Bad Moms 2” will have to battle some serious heavyweights at the box-office, but will be one of the few comedy-options for moviegoers to choose from. Releasing that same weekend is “Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok,” and the following week it will have to compete with “Daddy’s Home 2” and the thriller “Murder on the Orient Express“.
