Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time Trailer


Disney’s annual D23 Expo is happening this weekend in Anaheim where they unveiled some impressive first footage from a handful of highly anticipated movies including the live-action remake of The Lion King and The Avengers: Infinity War. Unfortunately, none of that footage was released online for the rest of us to see, but they did just drop the first trailer for Ava DuVernay’s upcoming adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s YA classic A Wrinkle in Time. The story revolves around a 13-year-old girl who sets out to rescue her absent scientist father, who has discovered the ability to fold space and time but is now being held prisoner on another planet. The visuals certainly look striking, although they are maybe a little more bright and Tim Burton-y than I would have expected. A Wrinkle in Time stars Chris Pine, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Zach Galifianakis and it hits theatres on March 9th. Check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    Looks like Tomorrowland made on the budget of a TV movie of the week.

    This has “Disney’s Big Budget Live Action Bomb of the Year” written all over it.

    I wish I was 14 again so I could enjoy this movie. Also, that song sure gets a lot of mileage in movie trailers.

    Disney PR will push this hard. It’s B.O. numbers will look alright but it will be hard to turn a profit on this thing.

  • LordAwesome

    Disney’s PR didn’t help John Carter, The Lone Ranger or Tomorrowland!

    This will have to be a huge hit in the US to make back it’s money cause it’s going to do squat internationally – the book is virtually unknown outside the US and there are no international stars.

    Casting Oprah in anything is a red flag. She’s even more “too famous” than most actors who fall under the “too famous” problem.

    And Ava DuVernay…. kinda sucks IMO.

    Yep, I guess catchy S&M lyrics really appeal across the demographics.
