A Wrinkle In Time Header

Earlier this week we saw our very first look at Ava DuVernay‘s adaptation of A Wrinkle In Time. Madeleine L’Engle’s acclaimed children’s novel of the same name which sees Meg (Storm Reid) going on a cosmic adventure that spans space and time to save her father from an evil force who intends to use his space time travel research for their nefarious deeds. Both DuVernay and Reid were joined by Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, and Chris Pine, and all shared their thorughts and experiences on the film.

Check out what they had to say and the very first look at the film, below.

Geek Peek: First Images From Ava DuVernay’s ‘A Wrinkle In Time’

Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle In Time title card

Selma and The 13th are both career-defining films for Ava DuVernay. Though the director was close to helming Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, she still found a way to reach a very important milestone. As the director of A Wrinkle In Time, she is first African-American woman to direct a $100 million film. It’s a significant feat if you pay attention to who usually gets these high budget directing gigs.

Now with the D23 Expo just around the corner, we are getting a better look at what is to come with a bunch of new images from the film. Check them all out below.

Movie Review: Sing
eelyajekiM   |  

Sing

Sing
Director: Garth Jennings
Screenwriter: Garth Jennings
Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Tori Kelly, Taron Egerton, Nick Kroll
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG | 110 minutes
Release Date: December 21, 2016

Sometimes what looks good can end up being just slightly disappointing. In this case, Illumination’s Sing gives a very earnest effort through its well-intentioned story and an excellent collection of songs that spans generations and genres, but falls very short of being great through its lack of a narrative and inability to juggle the many subplots. Backed by a great ensemble of actors and singers, director Garth Jenning‘s animated film has all the makings of an Illumination Entertainment film, but fails to execute a great concept.

‘Sing’ Interview: Garth Jennings On Making Singing Animals Feel Human

Sing Interview Garth Jennings

In Illumination’s latest film, Sing, Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) is holding a singing competition in his dying theater in a last ditch effort to scrounge up the money needed before the bank can repossess his beloved property. The optimistic koala settles on five contestants: a mouse (Seth MacFarlane), a timid elephant (Tori Kelly), a pig (Reese Witherspoon), a gorilla (Taron Egerton), and a punk-rock porcupine (Scarlett Johansson), in hopes that they can generate the funds necessary to keep the theater afloat but also bring back interest in genuine talent. Little does he know that the road to success isn’t easy, but with a little hard work and some faith, it can be done.

We had a phone interview with the film’s director Garth Jennings (A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Son of Rambow) to talk about what it was like to get clearance for the songs, working on his first animated film, his reaction to all the positive buzz, and much more. Check it out below.

The mannequin challenge craze has caught the nation by storm. And while I believe that it is a popular trend that will eventually find its way out the door, film PR might as well use it to promote their movies while the trend is still hot.

In this case, everyone involved in the production and publicity for Ava DuVernay‘s A Wrinkle In Time participated in the mannequin challenge to announce the release date for the upcoming film. Check out the video below.
