Get Your First Look at Kristen Stewart's Upcoming Gay Christmas Rom-Com, 'Happiest Season'

Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis play a lesbian couple in the upcoming rom-com Happiest Season and some first look photos have been released!

The movie was directed and co-written by Veep actress Clea DuVall. Here’s the synopsis: “Meeting your girlfriend’s family for the first time can be tough. Planning to propose at her family’s annual Christmas dinner – until you realize that they don’t even know she’s gay – is even harder. When Abby (Stewart) learns that Harper (Davis) has kept their relationship a secret from her family, she begins to question the girlfriend she thought she knew.”

Kristen opened up about getting to make a Christmas movie from a new perspective.

“I think I’ve wished to see a gay Christmas rom com my whole life,” Kristen told People. “I’m so happy and proud of Clea for bringing this into the world.”

“I love when holiday movie makes you long for an idea of home, but also examines how hilarious and hard reality at home can be sometimes,” she added.

Also starring in the movie are Mary Steenburgen, Victor Garber, Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, Dan Levy, Burl Moseley, and the film’s co-writer Mary Holland.

Happiest Season hits theaters on November 25!

The movie grossed $317,823 from 242 locations, bringing its 10-day gross to $916,333. It’s IFC’s first No. 1 movie at the box office. The movie also commands the No. 1 spot on iTunes’ Horror charts, as well as within the top 10 overall.

The Rental follows two couples who rent a vacation home for what should be a celebratory weekend get-away, and stars Dave‘s wife Alison Brie, Dan Stevens, Jeremy Allen White and Sheila Vand.

Due to the pandemic, drive-ins continued to lead at the box office, with a majority of the top 160 locations this weekend belonging to car venues.

“What’s amazing here is that this is arguably the second time during the massive exhibition pandemic shutdown that a new release after Universal/DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls World Tour, has topped the weekend box office. More amazingly, it’s an indie movie,” the outlet reported.

“I have been truly fortunate to have a partner in IFC Films whose agility and creativity during this time has allowed us to have this incredible moment for our film. As a first time filmmaker, I’m beyond grateful to the audiences who supported us this weekend,” Dave said in a statement.

A majority of that is from drive-in theaters, which continue to be the leading exhibitors at the weekend box office.

The movie stars Dave‘s wife, Alison Brie.

Here’s a movie synopsis: Two couples on an oceanside getaway grow suspicious that the host of their seemingly perfect rental house may be spying on them. Before long, what should have been a celebratory weekend trip turns into something far more sinister, as well-kept secrets are exposed and the four old friends come to see each other in a whole new light.

Alison Brie Says 'Glow' Probably Won't Start Filming Again For A While

If you’re getting anxious about the next season of Netflix’s Glow, it will probably be a while before you see it.

Alison Brie opened up about the status of the series with People magazine, saying that it would probably be a while before the cast reunites and starts filming again, even though production on certain projects has started up again.

“We’re a really physical show,” she shared. “When we shut down, I was in a wrestling ring and was in mid-sweat on another person as we were gearing up to shoot a match. We definitely taste each other’s sweat fairly often.”

Alison adds that while they did manage to film two episodes for the upcoming final season, they’ll still probably be one of the last shows to start up again.

“I don’t think we want to compromise creatively, given that it’s our final season,” she added. “So I don’t think we’re going to be one of the first shows going back.”

Earlier this week, while promoting her new movie with husband Dave Franco, Alison opened up about how they first met.

Here's How Alison Brie & Dave Franco Met & Fell In Love

Alison Brie is opening up about just how she and husband Dave Franco met and fell in love.

While talking about their romantic comedy they wrote during quarantine on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the 37-year-old actress shared her love story with Dave and how it started, while he was filming Now You See Me.

“It starts off in New Orleans at Madri Gras, where all great love stories begin,” she joked, before sharing the short story on the program.

“I was there with some friends,” Alison recalled. “It was some incredible matchmaking done by my friend Jules, after we ran into Dave at the airport. The two of them are friends and she had invited him out to dinner with us there. He was sitting next to her across the table and…my friend texts me under the table and says ‘You should hook up with Dave’…and I responded with ‘Yes please’ with a lot of thumbs up emojis. A very enthusiastic response.”

She went on, saying that Jules actually showed Dave the text.

“He was like ‘I’m in!’” Alison shared, saying that their friend asked him not to tell her that she showed him her text, before the same friend told her that she showed him her text.

Alison continued that her romance with Dave continued on after meeting up again in New York, where it was the “wining and dining, romantic portion of our meeting each other. He left a secret note in my sweatshirt on our last day of our trip which read ‘Come with me to Paris’.”

Check out her interview below, where she reveals why they didn’t use their love story as the basis for their rom-com.

Dave Franco & Alison Brie Wrote a Rom-Com During Quarantine

Dave Franco just revealed what he and wife Alison Brie have been doing in quarantine – writing a movie!

During his interview with Variety, the 35-year-old filmmaker and actor opened up about the romantic comedy film the two wrote together during the stay at home order in California.

“It’s a genre that we both love, but when we looked at the landscape of rom-coms over the past decade, it feels like the bar is set really low,” Dave explained. “There’s a trend where rom-coms have an overly bright aesthetic and the concepts are really silly and the acting isn’t grounded.”

He adds, “We looked back on classics like When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, Pretty Woman…When you look at those films, you remember how grounded they are and how great the acting is.”

Dave also opened up about Alison, raving over her performance skills and directing her in his new film, The Rental.

“She’s a unique actor in the way that she’s able to balance heavy drama with moments of levity, and it was just so comforting for me to have her there through the process,” he shared.

Dave added, “As a first-time director, there were moments where I would get in my head and start to doubt myself. It was invaluable to have her there to build me up when I needed to be, and to remind me that we were doing good work.”

With social distancing rules in place, Dave and Alison hosted a drive-in screening for The Rental last month. See the pics here!
