In May, CinemaNow had some good releases, but this month, there is a first for CinemaNow. Happy Christmas will be released on June 26th, which is a month in advance of its theatrical release! How cool is that? 

An official Sundance selection, Happy Christmas stars Anna Kendrick, Lena Dunham, Melanie Lynskey, Joe Swanberg and Mark Webber. Happy Christmas is about a budding novelist and her film director husband, Kelly (Melanie Lynskey) and Jeff (Joe Swanberg) and their two-year-old son living a peaceful existence in Chicago. But when Jeff’s irresponsible younger sister, Jenny (Anna Kendrick), comes to live with them after a breakup,  things start to change. 

Check the list below for other early releases:
