“Palm Springs,” which debuted July 10, had more hours viewed in its first three days than any other Hulu film in the same period.

“Palm Springs” made history at the Sundance Film Festival this year, selling to Hulu and Neon for just over $17.5 million, the most expensive in the festival’s history.
