The highly anticipated comedy “Palm Springs” has set its premiere date. Andy Samberg, of SNL and Brooklyn Nine-Nine fame, stars in the flick, which is about the Coachella Valley, but wasn’t actually filmed in the Palm Springs area. It was announced this week that the movie will start streaming on Hulu in July.
As the movie industry adapts to traditional theaters being closed, the flick will also be showing at some drive-in theaters as well when it debuts on July 10.
The movie broke records at the Sundance film festival, when it sold for $17.5 million — and 69 cents, the. Some sources tell Variety that the auction was even bigger than initially reported, with estimates closer to $22 million.
Plot details have been left vague about the movie, but its director, Max Barbakow, has described the film as a nihilistic wedding rom-com that’s “fun” and “a little bonkers.”
We’ll see for ourselves soon enough.
