Dwayne Johnson and Chris Evans face an unusual array of holiday challenges in the first trailer for their Christmas movie Red One.

Jake Kasdan‘s action-comedy feature from Amazon MGM Studios is set for worldwide theatrical release on Nov. 15. Red One centers on North Pole head of security Callum Drift (Johnson) and naughty-lister Jack O’Malley (Evans) teaming up after the disappearance of Santa Claus, who is known as “Red One” and played by J.K. Simmons.

“Are you saying Santa Claus has been kidnapped?” Evans asks in the trailer.

The film’s teaser poster was released in an Instagram post Monday and hinted at the story by showing a “Missing” poster for Santa Claus, who was last seen at the North Pole. “We need your help,” read the caption signed by Callum Drift.
”Christmas depends on it. And Nick, buddy, if you’re reading this — I will find you.”

Kasdan directed the film from a script by Chris Morgan. The movie was based on an idea from Hiram Garcia, who is president of production at Johnson’s banner, Seven Bucks Productions. Producers on Red One include Garcia, Johnson, Kasdan, Morgan, Dany Garcia and Melvin Mar.

Amazon MGM Studios shared 30 minutes of footage from Red One during CinemaCon in Las Vegas earlier this year but asked attendees not to share any plot details from what was shown.

Johnson’s recent credits include Red Notice and Black Adam, with the actor set to voice a role in Moana 2 and appear in biopic The Smashing Machine. Evans recently starred in Ghosted and Pain Hustlers, and his forthcoming projects include director Ethan Coen’s ensemble comedy Honey Don’t!
