Legally Blonde 3 will come more than 17 years after the original film’s release, and 15 years after its politically-themed sequel, Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde. That is, if you don’t count the direct-to-video sequel Legally Blondes, of course.

a wrinkle in time early buzz

A Wrinkle in Time has a lot of expectations riding on it. It is Ava Duvernay‘s ambitious passion project, the first non-documentary feature film that the director has tackled since Selma won acclaim and awards love four years ago. It’s an adaptation of a beloved children’s fantasy novel by Madeleine L’Engle. It has a black lead actress (Storm Reid) in a piece of colorblind casting that differs from the novel. And it’s starring some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha Raw, Zach Galifianakis, and Chris Pine.

So, does A Wrinkle in Time live up to those expectations? Not quite.

The social media embargo for Duvernay’s Disney film has lifted, and reactions are mixed at best and pessimistic at worst. Formal reviews don’t drop until March 7 — two days before the film’s release — but a few people who attended the premiere shared their opinions on the science-fiction movie.

Because when you get down to it, A Wrinkle in Time is about the crazy cat lady next door who turns out to be a celestial being who can transcend time and space — and only wants to help you find your dashing scientist father.

After the trailers that have focused on the epic journey traveled by the young Meg Murry (newcomer Storm Reid), the newest TV spot highlights the three Misses who send her off on that life-changing quest. Because you can’t journey across the galaxy without some inspiring words from Oprah.

a wrinkle in time trailer

If Oprah tells you to “have faith in who you are,” you darn well better.

13-year-old Meg Murry (Storm Reid) is a bit of an unconventional hero to set off on a quest spanning time and space, but aided by her gifted little brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe), her best friend Calvin (Levi Miller), and a trio of strange celestial beings (Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, and Mindy Kaling), she has no choice to rise to the occasion. The new trailer for A Wrinkle in Time charts Meg’s cautious hero’s journey from school troublemaker to galaxy-gallivanting savior of her missing father. And it’s all set to an empowering — and kind of cheesy — pop song.
