Following the World premiere in Hollywood last week the Ava DuVernay film “A Wrinkle In time” has received mixed press reviews, the film is the much-loved 1962 novel by Madeleine L’Engle’s. Hosted at the El Capitan Theatre it was the first public screening of the film.
This is a record for #DuVernay as it is the first time a black female director has been given a budget of more than $100 million this comes straight after the Marvel Studios’ Black Panther, successfully earning more than $707 million in worldwide tickets sales since opening in February and the film is seen as a historical moment for #’diversity in the film industry due to the predominately black cast and the African-set storyline.
Starring Storm Reid as middle schooler Meg Murry, must embark on a mission to find her missing father (Chris Pine). Meg gets help from three celestial beings called Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey), and Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling) and Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon)
