Universal had a really good show at CinemaCon this year, and one of the movies that came out of nowhere and now seems like a lot of fun is Easter Sunday. Like someone who’s never heard of Jo Koy, I was quite impressed with him when he came out to pitch this movie and how it came about. It feels like the story has been given a lot of thought and given an honest take on what her family life is really like while maintaining reliability to everyone. Universal and Dreamworks have released the first poster, trailer and images for the Easter-themed film which will be released in August this year.
