It's A Wrap on "A Wrinkle In Time"

Chris here. Over the weekend, Ava DuVernay wrapped filming on her big budget adaptation of family fantasy epic A Wrinkle In Time. While the happy news is that we're now that much more closer to the film, we now have a planet-sized crater on the joyful side of our social media platforms. If you've been paying attention, DuVernay has been treating us to a delightful behind-the-scenes treatment since filming began - and it's been such a bright spot over some gloomy days at the beginning of the year.

The constant glimpses have shown how Wrinkle represents the kind of diversity we've been demanding to see at the movies, both in front of the camera and behind it. The cast DuVernay has assembled (Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, Mindy Kaling) is enough to guarantee our interest, but what the director has done is made us excited for her hardworking crew. I can't be the only one who is going to miss having her introduce us to all of the people that go into making a movie, with no job (or person performing it) too small.





A Wrinkle in Time opens April 8, 2018!

This seems like the wrong movie for everyone involved. Big-budget YA fantasy is a dead-end genre, no matter how good the story is. Especially with Disney behind it.

Wait for one or two redeeming performances, one or two embarrassing performances, questionable CGI, over-exposition, dumb exposition devices, a glossy Disney finish, unhappy fans of the novel, Oprah doing promotional interviews.

Very good (and great!) directors have tried this zero-sum game before. I have no reason to believe DuVernay will give us Jane Campion wonder and depth or Peter Jackson fantasy escapism just because she filmed in New Zealand.
