Machine Gun Kelly wasn’t kidding when he said “I am weed.” The edgy musician is set to make his directorial debut with a major stoner comedy, which has a truly A-list cast, including his fiancée Megan Fox and his best buds Pete Davidson and Mod Sun. If you’re ready to light up and laugh along with some of the biggest celebs of the moment, here’s what you should know about Good Mourning’s release date, cast, and more.

Good Mourning has been in the works for a while now, having first been announced in August 2021, but there were no real details about it until more recently. The feature film is directed by MGK and Mod Sun, marking both musicians’ first time directing a major motion picture. It will also star the duo who are close friends and frequent collaborators IRL.

The film revolves around London Ransom (MGK), an actor whose day is upended as he gets broken up with right before an important meeting. The plot description reported by Variety reads: “Compounded by chaotic roommates and wildly unpredictable twists and turns, London’s day keeps going downhill until ultimately, he is forced to choose between pursuing his one true love and landing a life-changing, starring role in a major motion picture.”

Good Mourning Release Date

The stoner comedy will hit theaters as well as video-on-demand on May 20.

This will mark MGK and Fox’s second movie together, after the couple’s romance was first sparked on the set of the 2021 crime thriller Midnight in the Switchgrass.

Good Mourning will also star Becky G, Whitney Cummings, Dove Cameron, GaTa, Zach Villa, Jenna Boyd, and Boo Johnson.

Good Mourning Trailer

After confirming the May 20 premiere date, MGK teased on Instagram that he would be dropping the Good Mourning trailer very soon, and he wasn’t lying. The full trailer was released, appropriately enough, on stoner holiday April 20.

Is Good Mourning Based On A True Story?

MGK opened up about what inspired him to create Good Mourning at the movie’s red carpet premiere on May 13. Apparently, he actually did receive an ambiguous text from Fox one morning that caused him to worry she was breaking up with him. Much like his character in the movie, Kelly tried to get advice from friends, but none of it was helpful.

“I just looked at my phone and was so confused by a text that was sent by my now-fiancée," MGK told E! News. "I asked everyone for relationship advice that was not in relationships. And I was like, ‘I think all this is terrible,' and it led me down a really bad road.”

That may have been a turbulent day for the couple, but at least they were able to turn the confusion into a full movie.
