A few months ago Disney announced that they’d be adapting the classic sci-fi A Wrinkle in Time and released a small first trailer to give a taste of what was to come. All we knew at that point was that the film was marked for a spring 2018 release but this week, Disney have released a first trailer for the movie, and we have a release date too!
If you are beyond excited, and don’t have the advantage of being able to create A Wrinkle in Time then you’ll have to wait a little while yet, March 9th is the release date for cinemas.
What we do have right now is the new trailer, giving a real idea of what this film will bring. A Wrinkle in Time will star Oprah Winfrey, and Rees Witherspoon and other stars you may spot in the trailer below:
In various articles Danler has said that although she has some in common with the novel’s protagonist Tess, she is not based on the author: “[she] quickly became a character, and is in many ways much better and much worse at life than I was at that age”.
The adaptation of the novel will star Ella Purnell as Tess, alongside Tom Sturridge as Jake, Caitlin FitzGerald as Simone, Evan Jonigkeit as Will, Eden Epstein as Ari, Jasmine Mathews as Heather, Daniyar as Sasha, and Paul Sparks as Howard.
You can watch Sweetbitter on Starz from May 6th 2018.
Cumberbatch will play Patrick Melrose, the titular character of the new series, adapted from the Man Booker Prize shortlisted author Edward St Aubyn’s novels.
Melrose, the main character, struggles with the damage caused by a horribly abusive father and a mother who tacitly condoned his behaviour. Each episode, written by BAFTA nominee David Nicholls, is devoted to one of the five novels.
The series will also star Jennifer Jason Leigh and Hugo Weaving as the parents of Patrick Melrose.
The SHOWTIME and Sky Atlantic series will be directed by Edward Berger.
Catch new episodes of Patrick Melrose Saturdays at 9pm ET/PT only on SHOWTIME.
Since the announcement, it has been revealed that Amazon spent a quarter of a billion dollars for the rights alone, and that’s not considering how much it will cost to create the series itself. There have also been reports that Peter Jackson has been in talks with the company about being involved the ambitious show. Read More
Deadline reports that Hulu is currently finalising a deal for an eight-episode limited series from Paramount television, bringing Miles ‘Pudge’ Halter and Alaska Young to life on the screen.
Moran captures the intricacies of being a girl/woman better than most living authors today and her wit shines through on every page. So when I read that How to Build a Girl was coming to the big screen, it was a very exciting moment.
