All these side by side Garden State/Wish I Was Here trailer comparisons and many many more at Grantland. Have fun in the infinite abyss, kids.
Trailer: ‘Wish I Was Here' - July 25
Written by Zach Braff and Adam Braff, directed by Zach Braff, starring Braff, Mandy Patinkin, Kate Hudson, Donald Faison, Jim Parsons, Josh Gad, Joey King and Pierce Gagnon.
There seems to be a very clear straight line from ‘Garden State’ to this. The visuals and themes presented in this mostly visual trailer echo Braff’s first effort, but take a step forward to expand upon it. The Shins song (obviously) goes a long way in setting this up as well. All that said, your mileage may vary depending on how you feel about Braff.
Braff just sent out the following emailing with details about the film’s platform release.
I have some very exciting news to report today. We and our team from Focus Features have decided upon a US release date for WISH I WAS HERE.
Like Garden State, our movie will be a “platform release”, which means we will start in a few cities, and expand to more and more cities over a couple of weeks. With a “platform release”, we are able to build word of mouth about the movie, which helps build excitement for the film’s release as we widen across the country.
I am so proud to announce that our movie WISH I WAS HERE will be released on July 18th, 2014 in Los Angeles and New York.
The following week, July 25th, we will expand to 20 major cities in the US, and then keep adding more cities across the country until we reach as many of you as we can.

Braff said the following,
Today this happened. Easy? One thing it is not, is easy. But it never, ever would have happened without my fans. So, as always, thank you for your support and kindness. Full double spinning Eagle with a groin to groin hug.
