Check out the trailer Hulu has released for upcoming comedy Palm Springs, starring Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti.
The film follows two people who have a chance encounter whilst at a Palm Springs wedding, only to soon discover that they’re in a time loop – stuck repeating the day, at this particular venue. But hey, at least they’re in it together.
The time-loop film is a genre of its own at this point. Sure, it’s been done countless times, but it can be canvas for some sprinklings of fun ideas and interesting thematical spins on the concept. This looks like a feel-good crowdpleaser, and thankfully the rave early reviews suggest as much, too. Hulu and Neon certainly liked what they saw; they paid a whopping $US17.5 million to acquire the film at Sundance – a record at the festival.
Palm Springs, the feauture debut for director Max Barbakow, also stars J.K. Simmons, Meredith Hagner, Camila Mendes, Tyler Hoechlin, and Peter Gallagher. It hits Hulu on July 10.
Official synopsis for Palm Springs:
When carefree Nyles (Andy Samberg) and reluctant maid of honor Sarah (Cristin Milioti) have a chance encounter at a Palm Springs wedding, things get complicated when they find themselves unable to escape the venue, themselves, or each other.
