Zach Braff's Second 'Wish I Was Here' Trailer Strives for Greatness
"You can pick any one you want, just as long as it's unique and amazing like you." Following the first trailer boosted by The Shins, not unlike one of the trailers for Garden State, a second trailer for Zach Braff's Kickstarted, sophomore directing effort Wish I Was Here has arrived. Even though I was disappointed after my viewing at Sundance, this new trailer definitely makes me want to revisit the film to see if maybe I'll warm up to it. But at the same time, seeing clips in the context of the trailer, and knowing how they fit into the story, I'm skeptical that the film can win me over with a second viewing. Watch below!
Here's the second trailer for Zach Braff's Wish I Was Here, straight from Focus Features:
Wish I Was Here is directed by Zach Braff from a script he co-wrote with his brother Adam Braff. The "Scrubs" star and Garden State director also leads the film as thirtysomething family man wrestling with his disapproving father, an elusive God, and adult responsibility. Pursuing acting has landed him and his wife (Kate Hudson) in a tough spot, so when his grumpy father (Mandy Patinkin) can no longer pay for the kids to attend Jewish Yeshiva, Aidan opts for homeschooling, much to the chagrin of his hyperdisciplined, religious daughter (Joey King) and the delight of his less-than-studious son (Pierce Gagnon), The film premiered at the Sundance 2014, hits theaters in NY and LA on July 18th, and expands on August 1st.
