Movies: A Wrinkle in Time; The Bookshop

" 'Be a warrior!' says Oprah Winfrey's Mrs. Which to Storm Reid's Meg in the new trailer for Disney's highly-anticipated adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time," Deadline reported, adding that the "new look at the Ava DuVernay-directed fantasy pic includes tons of new footage that takes you into an adventurous and visually stunning world created by author Madeleine L'Engle." The movie also stars Mindy Kaling, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peña, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe, André Holland, Rowan Blanchard and Zach Galifianakis.


Reviewing Isabel Coixet's (Paris, je t'aime) adaptation of Penelope Fitzgerald's novel The Bookshop (check out the trailer here), the Hollywood Reporter called it "pretty faithful throughout" to the source material and "sustained by a cast which is well capable of suggesting the psychological subtlety of the original." The movie stars Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy, Patricia Clarkson, Honor Kneafsey and James Lance

Initial box office in Spain, where it was released November 10, has been positive, "and the fact that there's always a market somewhere for hand-crafted, quintessentially English fare--perhaps even more so in these troubled times--suggests that this one is unlikely just to sit there gathering dust," THR wrote. Stay tuned.
