While John Hillcoat hasn't had a problem attracting names to his upcoming cop thriller "Triple Nine," there's been a problem with them sticking. Shia LaBeouf, Charlie Hunnam, Michael B. Jordan, Cate Blanchett and Christoph Waltz have all been linked at various times only to fall away, but like we said, finding replacements hasn't been a problem.

They've announced yet another scare flick with a one word title beginning the letter "I"—"Incarnate."

Although its title implies either a whimsical journey of self-discovery or an ironic riposte to the vacation from hell, the story of “Wish You Were Here” is, in either context, a disappointingly pedestrian experience. The story of a husband and father trying to return to his normal life after a vacation with his wife and her sister that ends in the disappearance of his sister-in-law’s boyfriend, Kieran Darcy-Smith’s Australian import inspires a deluge of possibilities and provocative thoughts in its audiences’ heads, but languid pacing undermines the too-simple and ultimately too-conventional revelations that wrap up its simmering mysteries. Nevertheless, strong performances from the four leads sustains its unhurried approach far longer than the payoff deserves.

On the sun-kissed coast of Cambodia, four young Australians party, explore and kick back and relax, soaking up the sun during the day, and sweating it out at night. But this idyllic backdrop holds something far more sinister in store and when only three of the four return home, so begins a mystery crossing national borders, and poised to fundamentally change the lives of everyone involved. So begins "Wish You Were Here," a lean thriller from director Kieran-Darcy Smith, from a script he co-wrote with one of the film's stars (and his wife), Felicity Price, in a picture that features two of Australia's hottest exports at the moment, Joel Edgerton and Teresa Palmer.

As you know, there are approximately five thousand actors who have walked onto the set and in front of a camera for Terrence Malick's next effort "Knight Of Cups," a drama set against the backdrop of the movie industry, one of two features he's prepping along with a still untitled flick that takes place amongst the Austin music scene. And one of the talents that got to spend some time with Malick on 'Cups' was rising Australian actress Teresa Palmer, who was last seen onscreen in the zombie rom-com "Warm Bodies" and features in the upcoming thriller "Wish You Were Here." And like many who have collaborated with the press shy filmmaker, she wholeheartedly enjoyed the experience.

Wish You Were Here, Joel Edgerton, Teresa Palmer
With a membership that includes Joel Edgerton, Nash Edgerton, David Michôd, Spencer Susser and more, it's safe to say that the Blue Tongue Films collective isn't lacking in talent. And while the name Kieran Darcy-Smith might not be the most familiar of the group, he more than matches the talent his colleagues have shown across their projects, and his feature debut "Wish You Were Here" shows another strong filmmaking voice emerging from Blue Tongue.

Post-production, festival attention, and eventual release are bound to alter a filmmaker's perspective on a film -- particularly so, if the work is an intensely personal document of fatherhood starring their real-life son. Actor/director Mark Webber has done just that though with Isaac Love -- two years old during filming -- for “The End of Love” (read our review) and a week before its theatrical opening, he chatted with us about the journey from Sundance, Isaac's performance, and his next directorial effort.

Review: 'Warm Bodies' Exhumes A Zombie Romance Without Much Of A Pulse

Credit where credit is due, “Warm Bodies” does at the very least bring a zombie to the big screen that we’ve never seen before: one seemingly caught in the grip of an existential crisis. When we first meet the undead R (Nicholas Hoult) he’s literally and figuratively shuffling through life. His decayed state has also robbed him of his memory (he can’t remember his name, hence the initial), he’s not quite sure when his zombie life began and his “hoodie would suggest I was unemployed.” This is part of the pleasingly sardonic opening to the movie (you can watch the first four minutes right here), but unfortunately, it’s a tone that eventually evaporates from “Warm Bodies” in favor of something far more conventional.
