The film opened earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival and was able to garner critical acclaim. It was about to release in the theaters in summer this year but considering the ongoing coronavirus situation, it will now release on VoD via Hulu on July 10.
The film follows Nyles (Adam Samberg) and maid of honor Sarah (Cristin Milioti) who meet each other at a wedding in Palm Springs, California. They immediately hit it off and things get hot and heavy between the two and what starts as a one-time hook-up turns into forever when Samberg is shot with an arrow and he stumbles upon a time portal that sends them into an endless time loop.
Andy Samberg essays the over-the-top character Nyles in the film. He has appeared in a lot of movies including 'Hot Rod', 'I Love You, Man', 'That's My Boy', 'Celeste and Jesse Forever' and 'Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping'. His voice acting projects include 'Space Chimps', 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs', 'Hotel Transylvania' and 'Storks'. His role as the sometimes annoying but mostly endearing Jake Peralta on 'Brooklyn 99' earned him the Golden Globes award for Best Actor.
Actress and singer Milioti is essaying the character of Sarah in the film. She's widely popular for essaying the titular character of the mother on 'How I Met Your Mother'. She is also known for her work in theater productions such as 'That Face' and 'Stunning'. She also won a Grammy award and got nominated for a Tony award for her work in the musical 'Once'. She also appeared in 'The Wolf of Wallstreet' and Season 2 of 'Fargo'.
Palm Springs' is Max Barbakow's debut directorial. The film is written by Andy Siara. Andy Samberg, Becky Sloviter, Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone, Dylan Sellers and Chris Parker produced the film and Gabby Revilla Lugo serves as executive producer.
The trailer starts off by painting a beautiful picture of Tala (Camila Mendes) and Abe's (Tyler Hoechlin) wedding and that is where Nyles and Sarah meet. After initial sparks, the couple ends up hooking up at the beach but their fleeting moments of romance come to an end when Nyles is shot with an arrow by a mysterious man after which he stumbles into an endless time loop. Sarah comes looking for Nyles and even though he tries to stop her, Sarah too ends up being sucked inside the loop which they realize the next morning. Sarah is scared to no-end by this complicated situation that she's been pulled into as opposed to Nyles who's handling it like a boss. She tries everything to get out of the loop, even tries to get themselves killed by trying to get into a road accident and it is then that she realizes that this is their reality.
