Moviegoers will get a chance to feast on Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's untitled Christmas Eve comedy over the Thanksgiving holiday in 2015, instead of having to wait until Dec. 11.

Sony is pushing up the release of the film, directed by Jonathan Levine (50/50), to Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Anthony Mackie and Masters of Sex star Lizzy Caplan and are also starring in the comedy, which revolves around three childhood best friends who reunite in New York City for their annual tradition of going out on Christmas Eve for a night of debauchery and hilarity. Now that they’re entering adulthood, the tradition is coming to an end, and to make it as memorable as possible, they set out to find the Nutcracka Ball — the Holy Grail of Christmas parties.

Caplan will play Diana, a love interest to Gordon-Levitt's character.

Rogen and Evan Goldberg's Point Grey Pictures is producing along with Good Universe.

Sony insiders say the move gives the comedy more playtime over the year-end holidays. It means it also goes directly up against Universal and Legendary's holiday entry Krampus, a horror comedy also set to open Nov. 25.
