Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson teams with Chris Evans to save a kidnapped, jacked Santa Clause (J.K. Simmons) in the first trailer for Amazon MGM Studios new holiday film, Red One.

Red One stars Johnson as the North Pole’s head of security, Santa’s primary E.L.F. (Extremely Large and Formidable). The character teams up with the world’s most infamous bounty hunter (Evans) to save Christmas after Santa Claus (J.K. Simmons) is kidnapped.

A film synopsis reads: “when Santa gets abducted, the head of E.L.F, Lucy Lui, calls in the world’s best tracker (Evans), who just so happens to be a Level 4 Naughty Lister.  On their quest to rescue Saint Nick, the unlikely duo must work with talking polar bears, battle regenerative snowmen on the beach, and slapbox Krampus.”

Red One is written by Chris Morgan from the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise, and directed by Jake Kasdan.  The film also stars Lucy Liu, Kiernan Shipka, Mary Elizabeth Ellis, Nick Kroll, Kristofer Hivju and Bonnie Hunt.

Red One opens in theaters Nov. 15; check out the trailer – here.
