The cautionary advice of “be careful what you wish for” has been the center of endless tales of horror. Every now and then, it gets a rather literal depiction, which is exactly what Wish Upon looks to be bringing to the table this summer.
Joey King stars in the horror thriller about a bullied teenage girl named Clare who is given an ornate music box that somehow grants her seven wishes. A new trailer shows us what happens when she wishes that the girl responsible for making her life a living hell in high school would “just go rot,” but we already saw that in the original trailer. What’s new is a bit of background on the box which shows that it has quite the history of ruining the lives of those who had it in their possession.

Actress Joey King gives an excellent performance in The Conjuring. The sense of fear and terror she expresses is unsettling, especially during the “there’s someone behind the door” sequence. Not all actors are believable acting scared, but she can pull it off. Now she’s back in the horror genre with Wish Upon, which reunites her with The Conjuring‘s cinematographer, John R. Leonetti, who directed that film’s hit spinoff, Annabelle.
Below, watch the Wish Upon trailer.

Last year, the Best Picture nominated drama Selma chronicled a pivotal turn in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, when the black citizens of the United States were struggling for basic rights and equality. This year we’ll see the start of the modern Gay Rights Movement in the drama Stonewall, and the first trailer has just arrived.
Independence Day and 2012 director Roland Emmerich takes a break from big sci-fi action to tell this true story of a community of young gays, lesbians and drag queens who begin a riot at the Stonewall Inn in New York City in an effort to begin a more active fight for their own rights and acceptance.

Zach Braff‘s Wish I Was Here is now infamous because of the controversy surrounding Braff’s Kickstarter campaign. But the film premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and was a real crowd pleaser — earning a standing ovation at the Premiere screening (it was one of my favorites of this year’s fest). Focus Features snapped up the distribution rights, and the movie is being released on July 25th, 2014. The Wish I Was Here trailer was released this morning, and you can see it for yourself. Wish I Was Here is a dramedy about “a thirtysomething man who finds himself at major crossroads, which forces him to examine his life, his career, and his family.” The ensemble cast includes Zach Braff, Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Josh Gad, Joey King, Jim Parsons, Ashley Greene, and Donald Faison. Watch Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here teaser trailer embedded after the jump.

Fargo, the series, follows in the footsteps of Fargo, the movie, with the blessing of Ethan and Joel Coen. This isn’t a strict remake, but rather a new “true crime” story that is very much in the vein of the Coen Brothers movie, and which shares the same Minnesota setting and collection of friendly/quirky accents. That said, this new trailer shows that Martin Freeman seems to be doing his darndest to channel William H. Macy’s performance.
Some of the rest of the cast (which includes Billy Bob Thornton, Allison Tolman, Colin Hanks, Bob Odenkirk, Kate Walsh, Adam Goldberg, Oliver Platt, Glenn Howerton, Jordan Peele, Keegan-Michael Key, Joey King, and Julie Ann Emery) also has their own Coen debt to pay. Whether this will end up being able to stand on its own two feet is open to question now, but this trailer is entertaining enough that we’ll be watching the first episodes of the 10-episode series on FX.

Zach Braff‘s Wish I Was Here is now infamous because of the controversy surrounding Braff’s Kickstarter campaign. But let’s not allow that to cloud the real picture –Braff’s fans coughed up $3.1 million for his second feature film because they loved his first movie. Garden State connected with teens and college-aged twenty somethings in a manner that rarely happens, almost in the way that a song or a poem connects, rather than a movie. Fans have been waiting over a decade for Braff to go back behind the camera for a follow-up. This year at Sundance they got it.
Wish I Was Here is a real crowd pleaser, earning a standing ovation at the Premiere screening at Park City’s The Marc theatre. The film is very funny; when the lights came up I was hurting from laughter and sniffling a bit. (Must have been the cold temperature of Utah, right? Yeah that has to be the reason…) It is my favorite movie of Sundance this year (thus far).

Roland Emmerich‘s White House Down is the second of two “Die Hard on Pennsylvania Avenue” pics to hit screens this year, but if it delivers on the promises made by this four-minute final trailer, it could just blow the other one out of the water altogether. It has all the ingredients for a satisfying summer blockbuster: tons of big, explosive action; a liberal sprinkling of humor; and even some cute buddy-cop rapport between Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx. Watch it after the jump.
