We never thought we'd see this!
After years of delayed theater releases, Nicole Kidman's movie Grace of Monaco is now skipping the cinemas altogether to instead appear on Lifetime next month, according to the network.
The film — which takes place six years after Hollywood starlet Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956 — was originally set to hit theaters in November 2013. Its release was delayed indefinitely in January 2014.

Last May, 'Grace' premiered at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival to dismal reviews. It currently holds a nine percent critic rating on the website Rotten Tomatoes with the "critics consensus" stating the movie "fails to honor either its subject or its audience."

The Royal Family of Monaco has additionally voiced their disdain over the project, saying it "appears to be a farce" and claimed many scenes were entirely based on fiction. Grace's own children reportedly made "numerous requests for changes" to the script, but their comments were ignored by the writers and producers.

Despite the harsh criticisms, Nicole, 47, has defended the film, saying it represented a "small part of [Grace's] life when she reveals her great humanity as her fears and weaknesses."
'Grace of Monaco' — which also stars Tim Roth, Parker Posey and Frank Langella — will air on Lifetime on March 25.
