“Jon and Scott’s hilarious premise for A Bad Moms Christmas will not only let fans continue their laugh out loud love affair with Mila, Kristen, and Kathryn’s relatable antics, but adding Peter, Justin, Cheryl, Christine and Susan, and the holidays to the equation is more than we could have hoped for as we continue this important franchise for STX Entertainment,” said Adam Fogelson, Chairman of STXfilms.
Bad Moms was released in theaters on July 29, 2016 and made $23.8 million domestically over its opening weekend. The R-rated comedy grossed $183 million worldwide before exiting theaters. A Bad Moms Christmas is targeting a November 3, 2017 theatrical release.
The Plot: A Bad Moms Christmas follows our three under-appreciated and over-burdened women as they rebel against the challenges and expectations of the Super Bowl for moms: Christmas. And if creating a more perfect holidays for their families wasn’t hard enough, they have to do all of that while hosting and entertaining their own mothers. 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.
