Time is a-ticking until we finally get to watch Ava DuVernay's latest film, A Wrinkle In Time, and, as the director finishes work on the film, a new trailer has launched for the far-reaching fantasy.

Wrinkle sees Jennifer Lee adapting Madeleine L'Engle's 1963 children's book, which launches her Time Quartet series of novels. The story follows the Murry family; especially teenager Meg (Storm Reid) and her genius 5-year-old brother Charles Wallace (Deric McCabe), and Meg's classmate Calvin O'Keefe (Levi Miller). Meg and Charles' scientist father (Chris Pine) has gone missing, but after a visit from a mysterious woman called Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), they learn that their father's research may have been more successful than they guessed and that he may have travelled in space and time. The kids end up following his footsteps to a planet called Camazotz, ruled by a giant evil brain called The Black Thing. Along the way, they meet Mrs. Whatsit's fellow mystery women Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling) and Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey).

It's looking unlike anything else out this year, and will be on UK screens on 23 March.
