A Wrinkle in Time is one of our most anticipated movies of 2018, for several reasons: the beloved source material, the stellar cast, and of course director Ava DuVernay, helming her first narrative feature since the astonishing Selma. And we’re not the only ones excited about it, apparently; Disney had originally scheduled it for release on April 6, then moved it a month earlier, into the more competitive March 9 timeframe. (That’s not something they do when they’re discouraged by the footage.) We got a teaser trailer last summer, and now we have the first full trailer. Check it out:
What DuVernay is doing here is really kind of marvelous – taking a well-known story and giving it a decidedly modern bent, via colorblind casting and a generous sprinkling of Black Girl Magic. What do we think? We think we wouldn’t mind if they’d move it another month earlier.
