Ava DuVernay/Twitter

Ava DuVernay has been killing us softly with pictures from the set of A Wrinkle in Time, and now we’ve gotten one of the first teaser images from the film!

DuVernay tweeted out the teaser image with the tweet, “WRINKLE IN TIME. In theaters. April 6, 2018.”

Here are some of the other tweets DuVernay have put out recently, complete with tons of teaser images.

The film adaptation of the popular Madeleine L’Engle book has already made waves for casting newcomer Storm Reid as Meg Murry. The reason folks were wavy: because the role could have gone to, as Hollywood is prone to do, the many white newcomers while POC newcomers go overlooked. The cast is also multicultural, featuring Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, André Holland, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Levi Miller, Zach Galifianakis, Michael Peña, Bellamy Young, Rowan Blanchard, Mindy Kaling, Oprah Winfrey, Deric McCabe, and many others, including Akemi Look, Ke’Andra Samone, Punnavith Koy, Conrad Roberts, Sheila M. Lockhart, Jasmine Dampiér, Daniel R. Lawson, etc. In short, we’ve got a lot of multiculturalism in the main and background cast.

In full disclosure, I, unlike a lot of folks in elementary school, didn’t read A Wrinkle in Time. But, I am excited to see this film and finally understand why the book has legions of fans. If you’ve rocked with this book since the beginning, write about your love for the story in the comments section below!

Eddie Redmayne Cast as Transgender Artist Lili Elbe in "The Danish Girl"

Eddie Redmayne’s post-Oscars career glow is continuing with the announcement of his role as 1930s Danish artist  Lili Elbe in The Danish Girl. In true Oscars fashion, he’s playing a role that will require a complete transformation of himself. We’ve already seen he can inhabit the life of Stephen Hawking, but now we’ll see him inhabit the life of Elbe (formerly named Einar Wegener), one of the first people to have sex-reassignment surgery.  The above picture is the first look at Redmayne in character.
