Andy Samberg's anticipated new movie Palm Springs has finally been given a UK release date – and as a nice little treat, it will be available on Amazon Prime Video.

The time-loop comedy has already drawn huge acclaim, and initially racked-up a 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes earlier this year.

Well, fans in the UK that've been desperate to watch it won't have to wait too much longer, as it's been confirmed to launch on the streamer in early 2021.

Palm Springs will also stream on Amazon in Australia and New Zealand, who will be getting it later this month, while Canada will be able to watch from December 18. UK viewers will have to wait alongside those in the Netherlands and France for the New Year.

Samberg said: "We're thrilled that Palm Springs is finally going to reach audiences outside of the U.S. and we hope that all the Prime members in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the UK, France and the Netherlands enjoy the genre-bending ride!"

Back in July, Palm Springs broke the record for most hours watched over the first three days of release on Hulu than any other movie on the platform.

Meanwhile, Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Samberg revealed earlier this year that he was nervous about the "legit acting" he would have to do for the movie.

"There was a little more 'legit acting', as people would say," he said to ComingSoon.net. "I'm very comfortable with comedy obviously, but I've got a lot less experience with more dramatic stuff. I would say that was the main difference for me coming into it."

He added: "That was a big part of why I was so relieved when we got Cristin [Milioti] to do the movie. Because I knew she would be my crutch."

Palm Springs is available on Hulu in the US. The movie will be released in the UK on Amazon Prime Video in 2021.
