A new featurette has arrived for Wish Upon, and it’s home to all manner of PG-13 spookery! Something tells me there’s gonna be LOTS of teens holding on to each other in fright… if only because of “the old popcorn trick” (if you don’t know what that is, be extra careful grabbing a handful).
Directed by John R. Leonetti (Annabelle), produced by Sherryl Clark (Cloverfield), and written by Barbara Marshall, Wish Upon stars Joey King, Ryan Phillippe, Ki Hong Lee, Mitchell Slaggert, Shannon Purser, Sydney Park, Alice Lee, Kevin Hanchard, and Sherilyn Fenn. It comes to theaters on July 14, 2017.
In the latest horror thriller from the director of Annabelle, 17-year-old CLARE SHANNON (Joey King) is barely surviving the hell that is high school, along with her friends MEREDITH (Sydney Park) and JUNE (Shannon Purser). So when her dad (Ryan Phillippe) gifts her an old music box with an inscription that promises to grant the owner’s wishes, she thinks there is nothing to lose. Clare makes her first wish; and, to her surprise, it comes true.
Before long, she finally has it all: money, popularity, and her dream boy. Everything seems perfect – until the people closest to her begin dying in gruesome and twisted ways. Now, with blood on her hands, Clare has to get rid of the box before it costs her and everyone she loves the ultimate price.
Be careful what you wish for.
