Jon Stewart Political Comedy ‘Irresistible’ Headed Straight To PVOD This June

Focus Features has been goin’ hard in moving their theatrical lineup over to PVOD. EMMA., Never Rarely Sometimes Always, and next week’s The High Note have all seen their releases altered due to the coronavirus’ impact on theaters, and now you can add Jon Stewart’s political comedy, Irresistible.

It’s been clear by the complete lack of promos that Irresistible was never going to debut on May 29th as originally planned. Focus Features has instead pulled its theatrical release and chosen to release on Premium VOD on June 26th. The film stars Steve Carell, Rose Byrne, Chris Cooper, Mackenzie Davis, Topher Grace, Debra Messing, and Natasha Lyonne. The story follows a Democratic political strategist trying to help a retired veteran’s mayoral campaign in a small, conservative Wisconsin town.

A new featurette for Irresistible has been released as part of the announcement. You can check it out below.
