Groundhog Day. Edge of Tomorrow. Russian Doll. The idea of living one day over and over again isn’t new but it comes off as fresh in Palm Springs.

Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti star in the sci-fi comedy about wedding guests who fall in love while living the same day repeatedly. The film was an underrated hero at the Golden Globes and is definitely worth a watch on Amazon Prime.

We hear pretty frequently about the near-misses of asteroids that could destroy life on Earth and it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a reality. Greenland imagines that reality.

Gerard Butler plays a structural engineer who is one of the lucky few selected to be part of the government’s evacuation party when it becomes clear an asteroid will hit Earth. The rest of the film is an edge-of-your-seat ride as he rushes to save his family from impending doom.
