The trailer for the forthcoming comedy movie Palm Springs has audiences eager for a release date. So, let’s look ahead and consider how you can watch it.
When we’re talking cinema, it’s always interesting to debate which decade stands out as the very best.
Is it the eighties? Nineties? Or even, the 2010s?
Indeed, the last decade was absolutely astonishing, with a wealth of exceptional filmmakers delivering some of their very best work yet.
Narrowing our lens, it was an undeniably important period for comedy, with such applauded efforts as Bridesmaids, Booksmart, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Deadpool serving as a small selection of many highlights.
When it comes to underrated efforts, on the other hand, there’s a lot of surprisingly recent admiration for Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping starring Andy Samberg.
With this in mind, perhaps it’s fitting that viewers are currently expecting big things from Andy at the start of the 2020s as he takes on a role in Palm Springs…
Palm Springs movie release date
- Palm Springs is released on Friday, July 10th 2020.
Directed by Max Barbakow, the film centres upon Nyles (Andy Samberg) and Sarah (Cristin Milioti) who meet at a wedding they’re attending.
After sparks fly, it would appear that this romantic-comedy is on course to be just like many others we’ve seen.
It’s anything but!
The tables are turned when we discover that they become trapped in a time loop, doomed to repeat the day of the wedding again and again.
While the time travel formula popularised by Groundhog Day has been revitalised since with the likes of Happy Death Day, this is yet another interesting and unique take on the basic premise.
It screened at Sundance 2020 and IndieWire highlights that both Neon and Hulu bought it for a whopping $22 million, making it the most expensive deal in the festival’s history. Even though it was arguably the most hyped film of the event, that’s still incredibly impressive.
However, judging by the trailer, the film’s mass appeal helps explain the price.
Palm Springs: How to watch
The film will be available to watch over on Hulu from Friday, July 10th 2020.
They are currently offering the opportunity to start a free trial, so it’s easy and essentially free to give it a watch in the United States.
Unfortunately, Hulu isn’t available in the UK.
Not to worry though. Some have accessed the service using a VPN or Smart DNS, so that it registers you are accessing the site from the US.
Of course, it means you still have to pay; with the free trial, you’re all set to start with.
They boast some really terrific content, so perhaps you’ll wish to continue subscribing.
