Wish Upon movie review: be careful what movies you see about wishes you should be careful about

MaryAnn’s quick take… Simple, yet stupid. A magic box grants a teen wishes… that don’t come free. Apparently they’re not making eighth graders read “The Monkey’s Paw” anymore. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Have you ever heard the phrase “Be careful what you wish for?” You haven’t? Then you are the only person besides Ohio high-schooler Clare, who acquires a magic box that grants seven wishes, and doesn’t seem to think there’s anything hinky going on even once way too many people around her are dying in freakish ways after she wishes to get rich — and does! — and wishes to be the most popular girl in school — and it happens! — and so on. I mean, one bizarre accident in your vicinity is weird, and two is a coincidence.

Lakeshore Entertainment Closes Deal for $250 Million Credit Facility

Lakeshore Entertainment Closes Deal for $250 Million Credit Facility
Lakeshore Entertainment Group — which has financed the “Underworld” franchise — has closed its fourth iteration of its revolving credit facility with partners recommitting to over $250 million for another five years.

JPMorgan again led the deal as sole bookrunner and administrative agent, alongside Bank of America and all existing capital partners, which provides a further five-year agreement. According to the company, the transaction never made it to the open capital markets, because Lakeshore’s current group of 10 banks all recommitted early to the new facility, most in amounts exceeding their prior commitments.

Lakeshore was launched in 1994 by CEO Tom Rosenberg. Producer Gary Lucchesi has been president since 1998. Its notable releases include “Runaway Bride,” “Million Dollar Baby,” “The Lincoln Lawyer,” “The Age of Adaline” and “The Boy.”

The company has one television show airing in January (Paramount TV’s “Heathers”) and plans to have another in production by the end of 2017.

Sidney Kimmel Entertainment Flying High With ‘Hell or High Water’

Sidney Kimmel Entertainment Flying High With ‘Hell or High Water’
Sidney Kimmel Entertainment is shedding its usual low profile, flying high with its Texas drama, “Hell or High Water,” becoming a serious awards contender.

Jeff Bridges has received a Gotham Awards nomination for his role as a Texas Ranger tracking down a pair of bankrobbing brothers. Taylor Sheridan’s screenplay for the film that debuted in Cannes’ Un Certain Regard has also nabbed a Gotham nomination. Domestic grosses on the $12 million project have gone past $27 million for Lionsgate/CBS Films. Not bad for Ske, which seems to have found solid ground in the ever-shifting and contracting independent marketplace.

Carla Hacken, who joined the company in 2014 as president of production after stints at Fox and New Regency, admits that “Hell or High Water” — Ske bought the Black List script in 2012 — required steadfast backing from Kimmel during its development. That included shooting in 110 degree heat in the early summer.
