Star Movies has lined up Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time on Sunday the 21st of July for India. The film is based on a 1962 book which has been in and out of controversies ever since. The movie grossed $132 million globally, even though that did not cover the cost of production and marketing ($150 mn per Wiki) of this phenomenally-heavy-on-CGI movie, and stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, Mindy Kaling and Zach Galifianakis, among others.
The story follows a young girl who, helped by three astral travelers, sets off on a quest to find her missing father — Meg Murry, Charles Wallace and Calvin O’Keefe travel through unseen dimensions to find Meg’s father on the alien planet of Uriel. Across 35431 reviews, the film has averaged a rating of 4.2/10 on IMDB.
But hey, thanks to the cast and the massive CG and special effects, this is a film to watch, because Disney didn’t pull any punches on lavishing it across production and marketing.
So go ahead, catch the Movie of the Month on Star Movies tonight — valor and bravery lead the characters through an unidentified path, in a tribute to the special bond shared by a father and daughter who fight the evil IT together to save Charles Wallace. Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time this Sunday 1 PM and 9 PM on Star Movies and Star Movies SELECT HD. It is also available on Hotstar for premium subscribers.
