[VIDEO] Locally Filmed "A Bad Moms Christmas" Releases First Trailer and It's Hilarious

A Bad Moms Christmas, which started filming last month, has already "wrapped," and has a trailer out!

The comedy, which is the sequel to the 2016 film Bad Moms, was filmed locally in metro Atlanta. (Bad Moms was filmed in New Orleans.)  "Best friends Amy (Mila Kunis), Kiki (Kristen Bell) and Carla (Kathryn Hahn) deal with more stress during the holidays when their respective mothers come to visit."



Although the trailer is not even two minutes long, I spotted scenes filmed in Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza in Buckhead, as well in Charming Charlie's at Cumberland Mall.  Another scene featured prominently in the trailer was filmed at The Spa at Mandarin Oriental Atlanta, according to sources close to the production.   Although I did not see it in the trailer, the film also shot at Sky Zone, a popular kids trampoline park in Newnan.

Budgeted at only $20 million, the first Bad Moms film grossed just shy of $184 million at the box office.  While I'm getting a little tired of remakes and sequels, A Bad Moms Christmas looks good enough to best its predecessor at the box office. 

I was lucky enough to stumble across the filming at Cumberland Mall during which time Mila Kunis was filming. I also ran into Jay Hernandez, who plays Kunis' love interest, taking a break from filming, out to dinner in midtown.  While I'm not a mom, and not even married, I found Bad Moms quite enjoyable and am looking forward to this installment. 

A Bad Moms Christmas is due to be released November 3rd.

I wonder if this is why Phipps was in Christmas decor a couple months ago. Around the area that Santa is located.

Hey Chris,

Given I was able to spot Robert Graham and Tiffany & Co. at Phipps Plaza in the trailer, with holiday decor in the background, I'm gonna say yes.

Thanks for the comment and for your readership.

The exterior shot of the decorated house was filmed only a few weeks ago this month. The house is on McLendon just south of Moreland in the Candler Park neighborhood. They used another house down the street for filming as well. That house is across from Candler Park.

Jesus, what kind of lousy logic is this? Let's stick to movies named Bad Something. Do you think only grandpas or Santas enjoyed their respective flicks? That's not how movies, or people, work.

McClendon Ave. goes due east from Moreland, not south.
