It’s going to be a big weekend for movie news and trailers so it’s no surprise the first official images came from Ava DuVernay’s latest project with a trailer only a few days later. I’ve never read the books of the same name, but from what I can see in the trailer, they’re definitely good enough for a Disney backing.
Having such a strong cast like this doesn’t hurt either. With powerhouses like Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and Oprah Winfrey then you’re already off too a good start. Granted, I have no real idea what or where this story is supposed to go, but I’m still excited to see DuVernay’s work on a big budget film like this after her great work on Selma and 13th which are both must watches.
Chris Pine is also a name that always excites me because he brings a theater background into large budget films no matter when he’s in them. He’s a presence that seems to be gaining even more momentum post Star Trek and is coming into his own all the more with a diverse list of roles he’s officially had up unto this point.
