The trailer for director Ava DuVernay's adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle, part of which filmed here in Humboldt County, dropped during the American Music Awards last night. At last, the Venn diagram circles of movie buffs, sci-fi/fantasy nerds, YA fiction nuts, Humboldt boosters and Oprah Winfrey fans have all overlapped. The trailer looks pretty damn fierce. It's got a shot or two of the Sequoia Park redwoods, some very cool set design, broad representation among the cast and rolling destruction on multiple worlds. It also features some aspirational looks that have us reconsidering what to wear for walks in the forest and fumbling with metallic makeup and adhesive rhinestones. See the trailer at the bottom and see what we mean.
The film, starring Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, Storm Reid, Levi Miller, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Chris Pine, premiers March 9, 2018. So there's still plenty of time to master that rhinestone look.
