Amid some recent controversy surrounding star Dwayne Johnson's alleged on-set behaviour, Amazon MGM Studios has released the first trailer for new fantasy action comedy, Red One.

The movie stars Johnson as a North Pole security agent who mush join forces with a skilled bounty hunter (Chris Evans) to track down and rescue Santa Claus (J.K. Simmons) when he's kidnapped.

Along the way, the pair face-off against some buff snowmen, Krampus, and other badly CGI'd monstrosities.

At one point, Johnson's character, Yule McTidington (or something), takes an ordinary toy Hot Wheels car and turns it into a full-sized Chevy Corvette, prompting Evans to go back into the store and ask: “You don’t have a Wonder Woman action figure, do you?”

See, he wants The Rock to turn a Wonder Woman figure into a real person so he can f*ck it! Happy Holidays!

Directed by Jake Kasdan (Jumani), the movie has previously been described as a globe-trotting, four-quadrant action-adventure comedy imagining a whole new universe to explore within the holiday genre.

Red One is based on an original story by Seven Bucks Productions’ President of Production Hiram Garcia. Seven Bucks’ frequent collaborator Chris Morgan, who previously worked with the company on numerous films out of the Fast & Furious universe, penned the script. Producers on the film include Kasdan and Melvin Mar via The Detective Agency, Morgan via Chris Morgan Productions, and Hiram Garcia, Dany Garcia and Dwayne Johnson via Seven Bucks Productions. The Detective Agency’s Sky Salem Robinson co-produced.
