Director George Miller's new film is a pure act of wish fulfillment. The first trailer of this fantasy drama tells the story of the genie from the bottle. Idris Elba (Genie) and Tilda Swinton (Alithea Binney) played the lead roles.
In the story, Dr. Binney studies history with a deep dive into mythology, including stories of wishes that ended badly. So Genie's appearance fills her with uncertainty. Since only three wishes separate the doer from finding freedom, she shares stories with his new mistress aimed at helping her make a decision.
"Three Thousand Years of Wishes" overlaps with the story of Aladdin, but Miller's version looks to be an imaginative, screwball adventure in every way.
The picture is scheduled for a world premiere on August 31.
