A Wrinkle In Time trailer

Chris Pine’s scientist character Dr. Alex Murry is missing in A Wrinkle In Time, and it’s up to his daughter (Storm Reid) to find him.

She’ll go on the adventure of a lifetime in Ava DuVernay’s adaptation of Madeline L’Engle’s 1962 novel, helped along in her pursuit by three celestial beings, Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling), Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), and Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey).

Selma director DuVernay has been chatting about her new and very much anticipated film in Entertainment Weekly, and it’s a project she was interested in bringing her deft style to.

“I saw so much beauty in [the book], but also so much meaning. [L’Engle] is a very radical thinker and she embedded her sense of what society should and could be in this piece, and a lot of it I agree with,” DuVernay explained. “And through that, the story of this girl saving the world and being out there in the universe slaying the darkness, it also says a lot about slaying our own dragons.”

A Wrinkle In Time will be released on the 23rd of March, 2018.
