Ashley Greene felt the need for speed before she hit the Coachella music festival in California on Friday. The former Twilight star, who's the new face of the Oakley eyewear Made for More campaign, challenged her boyfriend, Paul Khoury, to a race around the track at the Thermal Club on Thursday in Palm Springs. The 27-year-old suited up in full racing gear and slipped into a brand new Bentley at the Oakley Learn to Ride event as she took on her Aussie TV star beau. Greene's inner adrenaline junkie took over as she put the pedal to the metal and »

When Katy Perry attended Coachella a couple of years ago, it was in the arms of a new man, but this year the happily single star attended the music festival with friends.

About a year ago, Zach Braff ("Scrubs") attempted to raise money for his "Wish I Was Here" comedy on KickStarter. He needed $2 million, which is usually a high number on the website. But much to everyone's surprise, he raised $1 million in one day and ended up with over $3 million by the end of the campaign. Now, Focus Features has unveiled the trailer for the film, which is Braff's second directorial feature after "Garden State." The movie will be released in select theaters in New York and Los Angeles on July 18th. Check out the trailer below. "Wish I Was Here" tells the story of a man who finds himself at major crossroads, forcing him to examine his life, his career, and his family. It stars Braff, Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Josh Gad, Ashley Greene, Joey King and Pierce Gagnon. Trailer: »
I don’t think Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here made the splash at this year’s Sundance that he, or the many that crowdfunded the film, would have liked. It received negative reviews from most critics, including myself, who felt that it tread much of the same water as 2004’s Garden State, while failing to live up to his acclaimed directorial debut. In Braff's sophomore effort, he stars as an out-of-work actor who takes on the responsibility of homeschooling his son and daughter when his ailing father can no longer pay their tuition.
This teaser trailer is mostly quick shots of the film’s beautiful cinematography cut to The Shins’ stirring single “Simple Song.” I’ve ranted about how deceptive trailers can be, and having seen the film, I can say this trailer (thanks mostly to the music) makes the movie look better than it was.

A delightful new trailer for the upcoming comedy Wish I Was Here has come online.
Director Zach Braff’s follow-up to his indie breakout hit Garden State is the story of a thirtysomething man who finds himself at major crossroads, which forces him to examine his life, his career, and his family.
The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January. The Hollywood Reporter‘s Boyd van Hoeij called it, “A more mature work from actor-director-producer Zach Braff that feels like a Garden State for grown-ups.
HitFix‘s Drew McWeeny wrote, “this is the film that he took to Kickstarter, even as people complained about the idea of a millionaire asking people for hand-outs. Beyond that, though, hating “Garden State” has become a cottage industry. The only thing Braff could possibly do to counter all of the naysayers would be to make a genuinely great movie…. which, thankfully, is exactly what he did. »

A decade after Braff made his directorial debut in 2004 with “Garden State,” the new trailer is set to the tune of “Simple Song” by the Shins, which previously benefited from its song “New Slang” being featured in “Garden State.”
The film, which Braff co-wrote with his brother Adam, directed and starred in, centers on 35-year-old struggling actor, father and husband as he searches for his identity and purpose in life. Unable to pay for private school for his two children, he decides to homeschool them.
While the trailer offers very little dialogue and doesn’t reveal much about the storyline, the music gives the clip a “Garden State” feel as viewers catch a glimpse of the movie’s other stars including Joey King, »

Braff has written, directed and stars in the upcoming comedy film about a father trying to find meaning in his life at the age of 35.
Wish I Was Here was partially financed through a fundraising drive on Kickstarter, which reached its goal of $3m (£1.98m) in May 2013.
The movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier in the year.
Braff's Wish I Was Here opens in the Us on July 18. »
Almost exactly one year after launching a successful Kickstarter campaign, the first trailer for director/writer/star Zach Braff's Wish I Was Here has debuted. The multi-hyphenate plays Aidan Bloom, a struggling actor who reluctantly agrees to home school his much younger siblings, after his father (Mandy Patinkin) falls on hard times and can't afford private school. Kate Hudson, Josh Gad, Joey King, Jim Parsons, Ashley Greene, Donald Faison and Pierce Gagnon co-star in this indie dramatic comedy, debuting in limited release July 18.
Wish I Was Here is the story of Aidan Bloom (Zach Braff), a struggling actor, father and husband, who at 35 is still trying to find his identity; a purpose for his life. He and his wife are barely getting by financially and Aidan passes his time by fantasizing about being the great futuristic Space-Knight he'd always dreamed he'd be as a little kid.

Zach Braff has taken his share of heat for his new film Wish I Was Here, which began as a Kickstarter campaign and has since found domestic distribution from Focus Features and a warm reception at the Sundance Film Festival. Set to hit theaters on July 25, the film marks Braff's first feature directorial outing since 2004's Garden State and tells the story of a struggling actor (Braff) who finds himself at a major crossroads, forcing him to examine his life, his career, and his family. Alongside Braff, the film co-stars Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Josh Gad, Joey King, Jim Parsons, Ashley Greene and Donald Faison.

Focus Features has released the teaser trailer for director Zach Braff’s comedic drama Wish I Was Here. Braff co-wrote, directed, and stars in the film as a struggling actor, father, and husband who is seeking purpose in life and trying to come to terms with the impending death of his father (Mandy Patinkin). I am in no way surprised that this trailer is set a song by The Shins (they provided two of the tracks on the Garden State soundtrack) and plays like a music video minus the musicians. It's a montage of clips from the movie, and based on the tone, it's not going to change anyone's mind about how much they want to see this flick. Hit the jump to watch the Wish I Was Here trailer, and click here to read Adam’s review from Sundance. The film also stars Kate Hudson, Joey King, Josh Gad, »

Braff took the dramatic comedy to bow at Sundance at the start of the year, just as he did with Garden State ten years earlier. Until today, all we’d seen from the film so far was a handful of images and the first teaser poster from the festival. But now Braff has revealed to his Kickstarter backers, of which I am proudly one, the first teaser trailer to start sharing online.

Zach Braff's follow-up to "Garden State" has had a bit of a rough go.
Braff had a Kickstarter to partially fund "Wish I Was Here," which drew a lot of criticism in the media because, well, when you've made piles of dough doing "Scrubs" for almost a decade, maybe you can pay for your own film. Then the project received "gap financing" from Worldview Entertainment during Cannes. Then there was some angry muttering at Sundance by people who had donated to the Kickstarter but couldn't or didn't know how to get tickets. Folks who gave $750 or more got tickets to premieres in NYC or La. Sundance tickets weren't necessarily part of the Ks deal, although some backers did receive tickets. Also, that's kind of the deal with Kickstarter; more's the pity for you if you back a project that later earns lots of money or, say, is bought by Facebook. »

Back in December we got our first look at Burying the Ex, the new film from master of horror Joe Dante (Gremlins, The Hole). As the zombie flick gets ready to burst up from the depths and emerge at Cannes, we got our hands on a brand new image today...
