Streaming Catch-Up: Wedding Season, Glorious

The first Disney+ UK Original series, rom-com action thriller Wedding Season, will stream from September 8.

The “genre-busting” series tells the story of Katie and Stefan who fall for each other at a wedding and begin an affair, despite Katie already having a fiancé.

Two months later at Katie’s wedding, her new husband and his entire family are murdered. The police think Stefan did it. Stefan thinks Katie did it. And no one knows for sure what the truth is …

The series is billed as “an action-packed romp across the UK and the US” starring Rosa Salazar, Gavin Drea, Jade Harrison, Jamie Michie, Callie Cooke, Bhav Joshi, Ioanna Kimbrook and Omar Baroud.

It will premiere alongside new content announced for Disney+ Day from marquee brands Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic and Star.

Shudder has released the trailer for its latest original movie, Glorious, which will stream from August 18 hot off of its acclaimed world premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival.

Rebekah McKendry’s movie stars True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten as the casualty of a bad break-up whose plight worsens after a pit stop at a remote rest stop where he finds himself locked inside the bathroom with a mysterious figure (J.K. Simmons) speaking to him from an adjacent stall. As he tries to escape, he finds himself an unwilling player in a situation bigger and more terrible than he could possibly imagine …

Shudder bills Glorious as “an intimate indie horror full of twists and unimaginable turns that boasts one of the most jaw-dropping roles of Simmons’ career. Psychedelic, comedic, overwhelmingly messy, and surprisingly emotionally, Glorious has all the makings of a future cult hit.”

Says McKendry: “Glorious speaks to my adoration of Lovecraft, gore, absurdist humour, philosophy, and the type of transgressive movies that leave you thinking, I can’t believe I just saw that.

“It is a wild mix of horror, humour, and heady moralistic concepts about our own existential realisations of who we really are, forcing each of us to stare into our personal abyss. And sometimes, the abyss stares back … and maybe has a favour to ask.”
