Groundhog Day, ” we all love a good time loop story. And the latest one, Palm Springs, looks like it could end up on par with those classics.
Palm SpringsÂ debuted at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, which feels about 500 years ago at this point. Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti play guests at a Palm Springs wedding who find themselves in a time loop. Why? How? The film’s trailer doesn’t say. But it does show that the stars have great chemistry, there’s a real romantic comedy vibe and things get absolutely wild. Check it out.
Samberg, of course, you recognise from Saturday Night Live, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Popstar, etc. Milioti is one of those actors you know you’ve seen before but maybe can’t place. Well, she was the lead in the standout “USS Callister” episode of Black Mirror, and was in Fargo, The Wolf of Wall Street, How I Met Your Mother, and more. She’s excellent and it’s exciting to see her as the lead in a big movie like this.
That movie, which was acquired by Hulu for a Sundance record $US17.5 ($25) million, will premiere on the service on July 11 in the U.S. There’s no current word of an Australian premiere.
