New Hulu movie Palm Springs starring Andy Samberg will premiere on July 10
Hulu dropped the first trailer for their upcoming new original movie Palm Springs, along with a release date and cast info.
Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, SNL) and Cristin Milioti (Fargo, Black Mirror) star in the time loop Hulu comedy and Neon.
Rounding out the cast are Riverdale’s Camila Mendes, Supergirl’s Tyler Hoechlin, screen veterans Peter Gallagher, June Squibb, Dale Dickey and (my personal favorite) J.K. Simmons, who, from the looks of the trailer, will be portraying a hilariously shady individual.
The official synopsis reads:
“When carefree Nyles and reluctant maid of honor Sarah 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.”
Palm Springs trailer
Palm Springs, co-produced by Samberg and his Lonely Island cohorts Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone, initially premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and, according to Indiewire, has made its fair share of industry waves after being picked up by Neon and Hulu in the most expensive Sundance deal ever (in true Lonely Island fashion, by 69 cents.)
Being a comedy centered around time loops, the film will be sure to follow in the same vein as Groundhog Day with more of a redband-humor sensibility we’ve come to love from The Lonely Island guys.
I’m most excited for the pairing of Samberg and Milioti. It seems like the film primarily centers on the development of their characters’ chemistry as hijinks ensue, and their solid abilities as actors to balance comedy and grounded pathos – Samberg has a fantastic turn in Celeste and Jesse Forever and Milioti delivers a magnetic performance in The Wolf of Wall Street – have been keeping the hype train moving for Palm Springs.
