    It killed Broadgreen pictures so I gotta check it out to see how bad it is

  • Necro

    Now is it actually going to be the intended version before they were forced to cut everything out? Or is it going to be an extra 2 minutes of footage? I ask that because bullshit like that has been done before.

    I have seen the movie and don’t know if a directors cut will make much of a difference. It wasn’t a bad movie but pretty bland.

  • Munchie

    good grief, didn’t this just open in theatres?

    • Yeah but it barely recouped it’s budget

  • I still wanna see this movie. I hope that, with the additional footage, it’s gonna be better than many of the critics said

  • Alex

    It seems like this movie had a cool concept but failed to deliver. I hope this new footage can change that but I doubt it.

  • Barry El Beardo

    Wish Upon was stupid but VERY fun. I really enjoyed watching it, you knew pretty much what type of movie you were going to get. I would love to see the unrated version 🙂
