Kristen Stewart, Michael Shannon, Anna Kendrick and Danny DeVito are among the actors appearing in films premiering at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
Festival organizers announced the slate of dramatic and documentary premieres on Monday.

Most of the titles won't be seen outside the January festival for several months, but premiering at the independent-film showcase carries its own prestige.

Stewart appears in "Certain Women," alongside Laura Dern and Michelle Williams, who also stars in "Manchester by the Sea" with Casey Affleck. Shannon appears in two films premiering at the festival: "Complete Unknown" and "Frank & Lola," which is described as a "psychosexual noir love story."

Kendrick stars with John Krasinski, Margo Martindale and Richard Jenkins in "The Hollars," which Krasinski also directed. DeVito appears with Greta Gerwig, Julie Delpy and Ellen Burstyn in "Wiener-Dog," about a dachshund that spreads comfort and joy, directed by Todd Solondz.
