Simple, yet stupid. A magic box grants a teen wishes… that don’t come free. Apparently they’re not making eighth graders read “The Monkey’s Paw” anymore.
The female protagonist has been scrubbed from this “classic story.” Why, Bekmambetov? You got a problem with women?
I’d love to see Benedict Cumberbatch as evil sexy bastard Kerr Avon and, yup, Martin Freeman as Vila Restal.

Boys are geniuses. Girls need rescuing. Lots of fun lessons to learn!
