“At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.” — Tzu, Chinese

26 different publishers rejected Madeline L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time when she began shopping the book around in early 1960. The science fantasy story was seen as too complicated or “too adult” for children to comprehend, and publishers of the era believed there wasn’t an audience for books with young female leads. They were wrong. The children’s novel was published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux in 1962, and has since become a beloved classic, praised for encouraging young girls to embrace their love of speculative fiction and pursue careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Now, 55 years later, Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time, a film adaptation directed by Ava DuVernay (Selma, The Thirteenth), hopes to inspire young girls of color similarly. Known for championing diversity and inclusion in Hollywood, DuVernay is the first woman of color to direct a live-action film with a production budget over $100 million. In keeping with her goal to create a more diverse representation on screen, DuVernay chose to stray from L’Engle’s description of the characters and cast actors of all ages, ethnicities, and genders to ensure the timeless story resonates with today’s audiences.

A Wrinkle In Time Press Conference

One of the best things about director Ava DuVernay‘s A Wrinkle In Time is how it makes themes about representation and identity easily digestible for a younger audience.

Based on author Madeleine L’Engle‘s novel of the same name, the film uses those timeless issues that affect children and turns it into a sci-fi fantasy adventure with an all-star cast led by the up and coming Storm Reid.

We, along with our fellow journalists, were recently invited to the film’s press junket where the cast and director talked about those themes and how they hope it reaches audiences of all ages.

A Wrinkle In Time

Ava DuVernay‘s adaptation of A Wrinkle In Time is shaping up to be one of the most exciting films of the year. And it is also looking to be one of the most inspirational. The film marks the first time that an African American woman has directed a $100 million-plus budgeted film. And that is just the tip. There is also a well-rounded multi-ethnic cast that is led by a young woman of color. So it is a very timely film that speaks to the current social climate.

Based on all the trailers we have seen so far, A Wrinkle in Time will be a sensory thrill. It looks vibrant and exciting. The sounds are powerful. And the world DuVernay has created looks so real. Now, with the film just a month away from release, Disney has dropped another trailer. Check it out below.

A Wrinkle In Time

Though there have been a few screen adaptations of A Wrinkle In Time, Disney’s latest adaptation of the film will be the first of its kind. Directed by Ava DuVernay, the film will be the first $100 million-plus budgeted film to be directed by a woman of color. Not only that, but the film sees a racially diverse cast and a young woman of color as the lead. That is something worthy of acknowledgment, especially in this day and age.

While the film has yet to be released, Disney has dropped their latest behind-the-scenes look that offers us a peek at the creative process of the film and DuVernay’s mission to give audiences a film that will reverberate. Check it out below.

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.

The LEGO Batman Movie review header

The LEGO Batman Movie
Director: Chris McKay
Screenwriter: Seth Grahame-Smith, Chris McKenna, Erik Sommers, Jared Stern and John Whittington
Cast: Will Arnett, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes, Jenny Slate
Distributor: Warner Bros.
Rated PG | 104 Minutes
Release Date: February 10, 2017

It wasn’t that long ago when The LEGO Movie burst into movie theaters with a million of bricks and an equal amount of laughs. What looked liked a bad idea at first turned out to be interlocking blocks of bubble gum pop and child-like nostalgia. Its success would, of course, give way for sequels and spinoffs, because that’s how successful movies work nowadays. And now we are getting a taste of that with The LEGO Batman Movie.

Sure enough, The LEGO Batman Movie proves that its predecessor was no fluke. It continues the tradition of capturing the child-like imagination of playing with these building blocks to construct a manically energized spinoff full of hilarious Batman references and self-deprecating humor. But it is also a visual bubble gum pop joy that has a heartfelt message and crazy action that can be damn near exhausting.

But at the end of the day, The LEGO Batman Movie is a pure delight that even non-Batman fans will enjoy. Check out the full review below.

We are one week away from the release of The LEGO Batman Movie, the spinoff to The LEGO Movie. Will Arnett returns to voice the Dark Knight Minifigure, who is profoundly dark and brooding. Michael Cera joins him as Robin, the Boy Wonder, while Rosario Dawson will voice Barbra Gordon, aka Batgirl.

Last week, we saw a video that took us behind the scenes of the making of the film. Now a new featurette gets into the bricks of things by taking us to the film’s setting, Gotham City – which is built by LEGO bricks, of course – for an episode of “Gotham Cribs.” Check out the video below.
