Amazon Studios has debuted its first trailer for its upcoming time-loop film, The Map of Tiny Perfect Things, written by The Magicians author Lev Grossman.
Films and shows featuring time loops are in right now, judging from the success of Netflix’s Russian Doll and Hulu’s Palm Springs, and this looks like a delightful YA take on the genre.
The film follows a teenager named Mark who has been living through a series of endless time loops, contentedly reliving the same day over and over again, until he meets another person stuck in the same predicament: Margaret.
In the trailer, we see that Mark’s been playing video games and trying out various haircuts while he’s been stuck, and Margaret tells him that she’s been working to solve crimes, learning how to drive, and that she aspires to be an astronaut. The two bond over their predicament, and Mark suggests that they spend some time working to collect “all the perfect tiny things.” Keep your eyes peeled at the 1:18 mark for Grossman’s small, comedic cameo.
The film looks as though it’ll be a fun romantic teen drama as the two become close friends, and as Mark comes to terms with Margaret’s reluctance to exit the time loop, saying that she needs more time for something.
The film is slated to debut on Amazon Prime Video on February 12th.
