Kristen Stewart's Rom-Com 'Happiest Season' to Skip Theaters, Will Debut on Hulu

The upcoming Christmas rom-com Happiest Season, starring Kristen Stewart and Mackenzie Davis, will be skipping theaters and going right to streaming.

The movie was supposed to be released in theaters on November 25, right in time for the holiday season, but now it’s going to be released on Hulu that same day.

Here is the movie’s 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.

The movie was directed and co-written by Veep actress Clea DuVall. 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.

TriStar president Nicole Brown said in a statement, “This holiday season — more than any other — we could all use a little happiness. It was essential to Sony Pictures and to the filmmakers that Clea’s marvelous and fresh holiday-themed romantic comedy come out when the lights are on the trees. We are excited that Hulu is geared up to make this happen in the U.S. and grateful that they love the movie as much as we do.”

Mary Steenburgen Started Writing Music After Something Fascinating Happened to Her!

Mary Steenburgen is a frontrunner for an Oscar nomination this year, but it’s not for acting this time… it’s for songwriting!

The 66-year-old actress, who won an Oscar for acting back in 1981, is eligible for a Best Original Song nomination for writing the song “Glasgow” for the film Wild Rose.

Mary started songwriting 10 years ago after she woke up from minor arm surgery and couldn’t get music out of her mind.

“I felt strange as soon as the anesthesia started to wear off,” she told IndieWire. “The best way I can describe it is that it just felt like my brain was only music, and that everything anybody said to me became musical. All of my thoughts became musical. Every street sign became musical. I couldn’t get my mind into any other mode.”

“I couldn’t focus, I couldn’t have acted,” she added. “I couldn’t have learned any lines. My husband [actor Ted Danson] and I were kind of frightened about it.”

Mary teamed up with a friend one summer and wrote hundreds of songs. She sent 12 of the best ones to a music lawyer and she ended up getting signed as a songwriter to Universal. Years later, she started working with the filmmakers for Wild Rose and now she’s probably going to get an Oscar nomination!

“I didn’t fall out of love with acting when this happened and I still haven’t,” Mary said. “But there’s so much more capability in our brains than we probably realize, and agreeing to diminishment and shutting down doors is a choice that we all make for ourselves. It turns out you don’t really have to do that.”

Kirsten Dunst Wears Braces for Showtime Series 'On Becoming a God' - Watch the Trailer!

Kirsten Dunst is starring in the upcoming Showtime series On Becoming a God in Central Florida and the first poster and trailer have arrived!

The 37-year-old actress is seen wearing braces on the poster for the show, which is a story about the cult of free enterprise and one woman’s relentless pursuit of the American Dream.

Set in a small Orlando-adjacent town in 1992, the series follows Krystal Stubbs (Dunst), a minimum-wage water park employee who lies, schemes and cons her way up the ranks of Founders American Merchandise (FAM) — the cultish, flag-waving, multibillion-dollar pyramid scheme that drove her to ruin in the first place, run by the powerful Obie Garbeau II (Ted Levine). Determined to make a better life for herself, Krystal dives deep into FAM and develops a tangled relationship with FAM’s most loyal and fanatical follower Cody (Theodore Pellerin), until her business begins to affect those closest to her, including Ernie (Mel Rodriguez), her affable water park boss, and his FAM-skeptic wife Bets (Beth Ditto).

Alexander Skarsgard and Mary Steenburgen also star in the 10-episode dark comedy series. The first episode airs on Sunday, August 25.
