With a hip soundtrack, and a film promising no shortage of life lessons, Zach Braff hasn't really changed up the formula much for his "Garden State" followup "Wish I Was Here." Except for the fact that it was crowd-funded, this looks like most indies coming down the line, with a strong distributor behind it, recognizable faces and more. And three clips have arrived to show you what Braff has put together this time around.

Wish I Was Here, Zach Braff

With a hip soundtrack, and a film promising no shortage of life lessons, Zach Braff hasn't really changed up the formula much for his "Garden State" followup "Wish I Was Here." Except for the fact that it was crowd-funded, this looks like most indies coming down the line, with a strong distributor behind it, recognizable faces and more. And three clips have arrived to show you what Braff has put together this time around.

Co-starring Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Josh Gad, Joey King, Pierce Gagnon, Donald Faison , Ashley Greene, Jim Parsons, and Michael Weston, the story follows struggling actor Aidan Bloom, whose life is thrown into turmoil when he learns that his father is battling a serious illness and can no longer pay for his grandchildren's schooling. So Aidan decides to home school his children as he tries to put his life back together, and as you might guess, a series of mini-adventures and insights.

"Wish I Was Here" opens on July 18th. Watch below.
