Jo Koy, a veteran stand-up comedian and actor, is set to take on his first lead role in a feature on Easter Sunday.

Jay Chandrasekhar, who plays the protagonist in the film, is the director of Easter Sunday. Jimmy O. Yang, Tia Carrere, Brandon Wardell, Lydia Gaston, Asif Ali, Eugene Cordero, Tiffany Haddish, and Lou Diamond Phillips have all starred in this new comedy.
So, let's take a look at this handy guide on when, how, and where to watch Easter Sunday, and get the party started!
When Is Easter Sundays Release Date?
Easter Sunday will be released on Friday, August 5, 2022, in cinemas across the United States. It's still recommended that you continue to follow all safety regulations regarding Covid-19, as stated by your city/state.
Is Easter Sunday Streaming Online?
Universal Pictures is making Easter Sunday a restricted release only in theaters, thus the film will not be available for streaming online. However, for those who want to watch the film elsewhere, here's good news: All new movies from the company will be available on Peacock, 45 days after the theatrical premiere, and they will also be available to rent or purchase. Easter Sunday is also expected to follow in the same vein.
Peacock is available for free and on a subscription basis. Peacock Premium costs $4.99 per month and Peacock Premium Plus costs $9.99. Peacock Premium features ads but also access to the streamer's entire library, while Premium Plus offers the same content without ads.
When Will Easter Sunday Be Available on Digital or DVD/VOD?
Easter Sunday isn't a weekend, but a day at the cinemas. Most DVDs/Blu-rays are released 90 to 150 days after the theater's opening. Easter Sundays could also be released around that time. But before that, your best option of seeing the comedy film is at your local cinemas.
Watch the Easter Sunday Trailer
Easter Sunday's official trailer, released by Universal Pictures and DreamWorks, has been released at CinemaCon 2022. It's a hysterical, homey, and a holy mess. The nearly three-minute teaser reveals the main plot points, as well as what kind of laughter you can expect from this family comedy-drama, which is also very well-known to Jo Koy's followers.
Easter Sunday is a story of family love wrapped in an outlandish plot with funny characters that you'll have to discover later.
What Is Easter Sunday About?
Easter Sunday's official slug says, "Home is where the crazy is." Isnt that enough to explain what this movie is all about? You could probably at least briefly describe it.
Joe Valencia is a struggling actor and comedian, and a single father. He gets a lot of fun at the same time when he is invited to spend Easter with his family. They are kind and hospitable, but also very loud and exasperating with their constant bickering and yelling. He goes to his old love interest's house and meets his eccentric aunt, cousins, and his former love interest. And then the already torturous Easter gathering takes a dangerous turn.
