While it might be Christmas Eve, for Deadpool, today is Trailer Eve—and ahead of the full event, Fox have released a suitably festive teaser to celebrate. Seems like Santa’s got some new competition in the “Jolly guy in a red suit” department.

While the festive trappings—the music, the rhyming narration, and the snow-strewn title cards—are nice and all, there’s actually some intriguing little snippets of new footage, giving us a hint at the film’s story (and some unfortunate times for Morena Baccarin’s character, Vanessa) and a wonderful moment with Colossus that serves as the teaser’s sting.
