Based on the sci-fi fantasy novel by Madeleine L'Engle, "A Wrinkle in Time" brought in just over $33 million its opening weekend, topped only by "Black Panther" which raked in more than $41 million and surpassed $1 billion in box office receipts worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo.

Ryan Coogler took time out of his day to pay tribute to Ava DuVernay, calling her a pioneer. It's why I feel privileged to call her my big sister.

Even before he met her, he was familiar with DuVernay because of her work as a Hollywood publicist.

The turnout put it well behind Ryan Coogler's "Black Panther", which was also released by Disney. But Variety said the film was "wildly uneven, weirdly suspenseless, and totally all over the place", while the Los Angeles Times liked the "sheer exuberance" of the movie but wished it was "more focused, more disciplined". In his essay, Coogler shouted out the 13th director's decision to mandate "the use of female directors and key creatives a full two years before the great Frances McDormand shared with the world what an inclusion ride was". Ava is inclusion, equity and representation. "I watched closely from across the hall at Disney while working on 'Black Panther" as my big sister inspired her crew with love and navigated the challenges of studio filmmaking, adapting a book that many people called unfilmable into a movie that explodes with hope, with love and with women warriors".

Usually, interviews with actors, director, etc. are held at a hotel, but when Storm Reid came to Atlanta to promote her new movie A Wrinkle in Time, we got to do the interview at a very cool location: her old Elementary school.

A Wrinkle in Time is set for release on March 9th in the United States and on March 23rd in the United Kingdom and features a cast that includes Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Zach Galifianakis, Levi Miller, Andre Holland and Deric McCabe.
