Wednesday TV: Lots of New Movies

Of the many new movies premiering today, the standout looks to be Clea DuVall’s “Happiest Season” (Hulu, streaming) with Kristen Stewart Mackenzie Davis and Dan Levy, about a pair of girlfriends who aren’t out when it comes time for holiday family visits.

There’s a similar premise to another new film, “Uncle Frank” (Amazon, streaming), whose cast includes Paul Bettany, Stephen Root, Margo Martindale, Steve Zahn and Judy Greer.  

A third big ticket holiday film stars Kurt Russell as Santa Claus opposite Goldie Hawn in the sequel “The Christmas Chronicles: Part Two” (Netflix, streaming). 

Taylor Swift is listed as director to “Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions” (Disney+, streaming), in which she sings and talks about the songs from her latest album in a Hudson Valley hideaway, with appearances of Aaron Dessner of The National, Jack Antonoff of Bleachers and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver. 

Not sure who asked for a revived “Saved by the Bell” (Peacock, streaming), but here it is, with a new group of high schoolers amid a lot of familiar faces from the first go-round, including Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkley, Tiffani Thiessen and Mark-Paul Gosselaar.
