Chris Pine is having a very good year. It’s like he heard that there was a Chris-athon and wants to be the best Chris (should I slide him up the scale? It’s a hard climb dislodging Chris Evans and his dog pictures).
This movie looks gorgeous. Inanely, mind-blowingly gorgeous. Everyone is upping the ante on who can create the most beautiful universe in cinema (I’m giving Valerian a chance on that alone). Although as always, I’m cautious that it’s going to be pretty but not effective (hey again Valerian!).
Oprah, Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon round out the cast as Mrs Which, Mrs Who and Mrs Whatsit and they look stunning. Bonus points for diversity as always, I mean, it’s an Ava DuVernay directed film, she’s all about the inclusiveness. I haven’t heard any whining about it, but surely there are pockets about it on the internet somewhere. Those are not good places.
A Wrinkle in Time is scheduled for release in March 2019, which is a long, long, lead-up. In Ava we trust.
