“You just have to embrace the fact that nothing matters.” Not even your best friend’s wedding. Perhaps especially your best friend’s wedding.
Here is the first trailer for Palm Springs, the existential romantic comedy starring Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti for which Hulu and Neon famously paid a Sundance-record $17.5 million to acquire in January. Watch it above while trying to keep “I Got You Babe” from spinning on repeat in your mind.
Here’s your logline: While stuck at a wedding in Palm Springs, Nyles (Samberg) meets Sarah (Milioti), the maid of honor and family black sheep. After he rescues her from a disastrous toast, Sarah becomes drawn to Nyles and his offbeat nihilism. But when their impromptu tryst is thwarted by a surreal interruption, Sarah must join Nyles in embracing the idea that nothing really matters, and they begin wreaking spirited havoc on the wedding celebration.
J.K. Simmons, Meredith Hagner, Camila Mendes, Tyler Hoechlin, and Peter Gallagher co-star in the film produced by Limelight and Lonely Island Classics.
Max Barbakow directed Palm Springs from a script by Andy Siara. The producers are Andy Samberg, Becky Sloviter, Dylan Sellers, Chris Parker and Samberg’s longtime Lonely Island colleagues Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone. Gabby Revilla Lugo is the executive producer.
