'A Wrinkle In Time' Is Our Collective Happy Place
Is there any better way to kick off a new week than to luxuriate in more footage from Ava DuVernay’s upcoming A Wrinkle In Time? Let’s take a look and see, shall we?
Can I just pay Oprah to whisper “Be a warrior!” in my ear every morning? I’m not kidding even a little. I’ve watched the trailer multiple times already and that bit always chokes me up. Honestly though, I’d settle for the opportunity to live in whatever collective walk-in closet Oprah, Mindy Kaling, and Reese Witherspoon appear to share.
And if you need some new artwork to set as your background, they conveniently released a new poster as well. Why yes, that IS Chris Pine literally goddamn GLOWING in the center.
Here’s the official synopsis, in case anyone needs a refresher:
From visionary director Ava DuVernay comes Disney’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” an epic adventure based on Madeleine L’Engle’s timeless classic which takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light.
Directed by Emmy(R) winner and Oscar(R) and Golden Globe(R) nominee Ava DuVernay from a screenplay by Oscar winner Jennifer Lee based upon the beloved novel by Madeleine L’Engle, “A Wrinkle in Time” stars: two-time Academy Award(R) nominee Oprah Winfrey, Oscar and Emmy winner Reese Witherspoon, Emmy nominee Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peňa and introducing Storm Reid, with two-time Emmy winner Zach Galifianakis and Emmy nominee Chris Pine.
A Wrinkle In Time lands March 9th, 2018.
