With Halloween decorations already in some stores, it won’t be long before the holiday season is upon us. Fortunately, this year’s crop of holiday films will include Bad Santa 2, and we’ve got the the extremely foul-mouthed sequel’s new red band trailer in today’s Movie Morsels. Plus, the first look at Tom Hiddleston in Thor: Ragnarok, news of another Chronicles of Narnia sequel, and much more!
Bad Santa 2
Billy Bob Thornton is back as the world’s worst department store Santa ever in Bad Santa 2. Joined once more by his pals Marcus and Thurman Merman, as well as, this time around, by Kathy Bates and Christina Hendricks, the alcoholic misanthrope returns to theaters on November 23.

After months of cavorting around the world with his new girlfriend Taylor Swift, Tom Hiddleston wants us all to know that he’s rested and ready to return to the role that made him famous back in Thor and The Avengers. The actor shared the following first look at himself as Loki on the set of Thor: Ragnarok film via Instagram.

The Silver Chair
Finally today… It’s been a long wait since 2010’s Voyage of the Dawn Treader (pictured above) for C.S. Lewis devotees, but the fourth film in the Chronicles of Narnia series is finally moving forward. Reportedly more of a reboot than a strict continuation, The Silver Chair will be produced by TriStar Pictures, The Mark Gordon Company, The C.S. Lewis Company, and Entertainment One. Life of Pi and Finding Neverland screenwriter David Magee has been working on a script.
