Trailer: A Wrinkle In Time

 

Disney and Ava DuVernay are giving the world another film version of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic science fiction story, A Wrinkle In Time. Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, AndrĂ© Holland, Zach Galifianakis and Chris Pine star, along with a very hefty amount of production value that reminds me a little be of Gore Verbinski’s brand of sunny off-kilter weirdness. I like the look of this movie, a lot, like Tomorrowland but with more teeth. I’ve never read the novel, but have heard many praises sung for its mix of hard sci fi with pulp fantasy. The book has certainly stood the test of time, as it has been in print for more than 50 years, and this is the second feature film adaptation (the first was made in Canada in 2003 with Alfre Woodard.)
