Weekend Box Office: Wrinkle Wrinkle Little Star

Wrinkle In Time

In making the film, DuVernay admits she was well aware of the cinematic challenges of producing a live-action adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's beloved children's book. She made a name for herself as a filmmaker for directing movies about black women but she became a national sensation for her 2014 hit Selma, which depicted the Selma to Montgomery marches in 1965. In other words, writes Ford, "Meg is an angry black girl".

The Black Panther director recalls how DuVernay, a publicist turned director, was "already one of [his] heroes" before he met her, given that he admired her 2010 and 2012 films I Will Follow and Middle of Nowhere. As Disney's second movie of 2018, following several weeks after the powerhouse that is Marvel's Black Panther, AWrinkle of Time has earned mixed reception, but it was unclear how the movie would perform commercially.

Today the talented director checked into The Breakfast Club to talk about getting into the game at a "late" age, getting Sade to cut a song for the soundtrack to A Wrinkle In Time, and why she passed on directing Black Panther.

Hollis also predicted that "A Wrinkle in Time" has the next four weekends during spring vacations from schools. The $39.6 million worldwide opening is not too shabby, but the film will need to go the distance as its foreign expansion continues. This isn't a good start for Amazon Studios' first attempt at self-distribution, and the film's "C+" CinemaScore shows that audiences just didn't get it.

The weekend marks the first time in recent memory that films both led and directed by African-Americans have nabbed the first and second place spots at the box office. "We're feeling good about what, for us, is a little family competition between now and (the Easter holiday)", he added.

The debut of Disney's 'A Wrinkle in Time' aligned pretty closely with the missed-potential of 2015's "Tomorrowland".

The movie starring Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Minday Kaling, Chris Pine and newcomer Storm Reid grossed another $6.3 million overseas in six territories, so it still has a lot of room to grow its global audience. It has now gained a domestic total of $562 million, with more than a billion dollars globally.
