First official trailer for Wish I Was Here, Zach Braff's Kickstarter film


"This is it!"

There's always a long wait after a Kickstarter project ends. When that Kickstarter project is for a film, the wait is painful. When it's Zach Braff's latest film, the wait is downright torturous. Thankfully, that wait is almost over, and now we have a trailer to tide us over.

Released today, Wish I Was Here is full of Zach Braff's trademarks as a director: wide, vibrant shots, slow-motion shots, and shots with the character as an afterthought. Set to the tune of "Simple Song" by The Shins and clocking in at roughly a minute and forty seconds, it almost seems like the trailer is its own story: a guy who seems jarred by some sort of tragedy has a complete disconnect with reality and goes on wild adventures with the gorgeous Penny Lane Kate Hudson.

The trailer left me feeling emotionally drained, hopeful, adventurous, and longing for a road trip. If this is even a tenth as fantastic as Garden State was, we're all in for a treat. Keep in mind that with Garden State, Braff was creatively restrained by the powers that be. Since money was raised by the community for this film, he's free to let his creativity shine.

Expect more coverage as we lead up to Wish I Was Here's debut in theaters this July.
