A Wrinkle in Time is based on the 1963 novel of the same name by Madeleine L’Engle. The film stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Storm Reid, Zach Galifianakis, and Chris Pine.
The trailer dives into one of literature’s most seminal and surreal science fiction stories, following Meg (Reid) as she defies the laws of space and time in order to find her father (played by Chris Pine), a brilliant scientist who caught the attention of some seriously nefarious forces. We also get glimpses of Witherspoon as “Mrs. Whatsit,” Kaling as “Mrs. Who,” and Oprah as “Mrs. Which.”
With A Wrinkle In Time, DuVernay officially became the first African-American woman to direct a movie with a budget over $100 million.
A Wrinkle in Time will be released nationwide on March 9, 2018.
