FIRST LOOK:  Watch the Teaser Trailer for "A Wrinkle in Time" - Video

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.

Actor Chris Pine: America Should Do More To Protest Russia’s Treatment Of Gays At Sochi Olympics

Chris Pine

Actor Chris Pine who is the newest Jack Ryan in the upcoming espionage thriller Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit has openly criticized Russia’s brutal and inhuman anti-gay laws and the U.S. governments rather lackluster response to it, in a recent interview.

AP reports:

Chris Pine says the U.S. should have done more in the run-up to the Sochi Olympics to protest Russia’s anti-gay legislation, which he calls “clearly awful, archaic, hostile nonsense.”

“I think we should do more than just send gay Olympians there,” the 33-year-old actor said in an interview while promoting his film “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.” ”What’s happening there in terms of gay rights or the lack of it is extraordinary and awful.”

President Obama announced last month that out athletes Billie Jean King, Brian Boitano and Caitlin Cahow would be in the official delegation to the Sochi Games.

Since the announcement Billie Jean King has stated that any athletes attending the games should not openly protest the Russian law.

It’s not even close to the end of the year but conventions are already rolling out their guests for 2014. In April, MoCCA Fest will honor queer creators Alison Bechdel and Howard Cruse in their annual zine and small publisher gathering. Bechdel is probably most famous for her strip “Dykes to Watch Out For,” and her graphic novels Fun Home and Are You My Mother garnered widespread acclaim. Cruse is the author and illustrator of Stuck Rubber Baby, a semi-autobiographical story of growing up queer in the South during the civil rights era, and edited the infamous Gay Comix.

Fan-favorite actor (and newly wedded) John Barrowman posted pictures of himself on his adult Big Wheels. Why? Who knows. Does it matter?

This picture of Star Trek’s Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine has been popping up around the internet this week. Because who doesn’t love great slash fiction coming to life? Image via Twitter

DC claimed nearly half of September’s comic book sales, driven primarily by the high demand for its Villain Months titles, which featured 3D premium covers. While I’m sure execs are delighted by the news, one has to wonder whether or not more gimmick products are in the pipeline, with publishers placing more emphasis on eye-catching window dressing over quality stories.

Finally, Marvel debuted a puzzle game for smartphones and tablets. Marvel Puzzle Quest: Dark Reign offers little in terms of innovation, but, much like Bejeweled and Candy Crush Saga, you’ll find yourself playing “just one more round” late into the evening. It’s by far the least queer news of the week, other than it’s been occupying most of my free time for the past couple of days.

Chris Pine Talks About Taking On Gay Roles

Some of you may know my deep, unwavering love of Chris Pine. The man is just..mmmm. It’s hard for me to disguise my affection for him whenever his name comes up because besides those piercing blue eyes his personality seems to be so endearing and cautiously inquisitive about the world. And in his latest interview in OUT Magazine, you’ll understand why this man fascinates me so much. Here’s more:

Pine reveals he sought out a role in HBO’s adaptation of Larry Kramer’s “The Normal Heart,” which is set to star Julia Roberts, Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer, but a deal didn’t work out because of scheduling. “I would have done that in a fucking heartbeat,” he says. “Right now I just want to play good roles, and if the role happens to be a gay man, that’s not of any import other than is it a good story? Does it say something that’s interesting?”

Of his “Star Trek” co-star Zachary Quinto, who came out in a 2011 New York magazine profile, Pine noted, “It was something that I knew about Zach from the moment I met him … It was something that we kind of tiptoed around and I just took it as a given, because that’s what he wanted.”

When Quinto did come out, Pine said he was “so happy for him, oh man. I thought it was rad. It was really, really cool. He did it on his own time, on his own schedule.”

See? What a perfect answer that you want to hear from our straight allies; completely not threatened all the while being supportive and accepting of the various stages we go through.  He’s just..perfect. While I’m here, these are some of my favorite pics from his GQ cover shoot:
