Hulu just released the official trailer for Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti’s Palm Springs, and it is clear to see why the movie was so popular at the Sundance Film Festival this year. The film was sold to Neon and Hulu in a deal reportedly worth US$17.5 million, making it the most expensive festival deal in history by 69 cents (the previous record was held by The Birth of a Nation). However, sources say that it is actually closer to US$22 million.
The fact that Palm Springs has a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with twenty seven critics having weighed in, and had two companies spend so much money just to acquire it shows us what a remarkable film it is. Even though the film is using the Groundhog Day premise, with the two leads stuck in a time loop and forced to relive the same day over and over again, there is a wit and wisdom in how the formula is applied and what the film chooses to focus on.
Starring opposite Samberg and Milioti is a cast that includes J.K. Simmons, Meredith Hagner, Camila Mendes, Tyler Hoechlin and Peter Gallagher. Palm Springs is the second film to be a Neon pick up out of Sundance 2020 that is getting a first-run debut by streaming on Hulu (the first was Shirley).
Palm Springs will be available on Hulu July 10, 2020.
