Happy Christmas, the latest movie from writer/director Joe Swanberg (Drinking Buddies, LOL), comes out this summer, and this is the brand new trailer for it. The comedy/drama follows an irresponsible 20something woman (Anna Kendrick) who, after a breakup, moves in with her filmmaker brother (Mark Webber), his novelist wife (Melanie Lynskey), and their baby, disrupting their lives. Lena Dunham also stars as Kendrick's friend. Happy Christmas is being released on VOD on June 26th and in theaters July 25th.

Director Joe Swanberg Secretly Shot a Movie with Lena Dunham and Anna Kendrick Last Year

Writer/director Joe Swanberg, who made Hannah Takes the Stairs and the upcoming summer release Drinking Buddies, made a movie last year that the public didn't know about until this week. Swanberg revealed to Indiewire that in December, he filmed an independent movie tentatively called Happy Christmas that stars Anna Kendrick, Lena Dunham, Melanie Lynskey, and Mark Webber. Details about the movie are few and far between but it is set in Chicago, "focuses on a family and is set during the holidays." The director hopes to take Happy Christmas to festivals in 2014, meaning that non-festival folk will probably be able to see it later next year.
