If you can only stomach one last mannequin challenge video, this is the one to watch. Plus, as a bonus, you get to find out the release date for A Wrinkle In Time at the end of it.
Director Ava DuVernay tweeted the video to announce the April 6, 2018 release date for the upcoming Disney film, which is an adaptation of the classic children's novel by Madeleine L'Engle. The sci-fi/fantasy book was first published in 1963.
The adaptation stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Dr. Kate Murry, Chris Pine as Dr. Alex Murry and Storm Reid as the lead, Meg Murry. Zach Galifianakis, Mindy Kaling, Michael Pena and Reese Witherspoon are also set to appear in the film.
The giant mannequin challenge to announce the release date included, according DuVernay's tweet, 102 Wrinkle in Time crew members from 27 departments. If you're not familiar with the #MannequinChallenge it's that thing that Paul McCartney does really well while listening to Rae Sremmurd.
DuVernay is making history by helming the film, becoming the first woman of color in history to direct a movie with a budget of $100 million. DuVernay directed the 2014 film Selma, which was nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture.
In October, DuVernay talked to Collider about why she took up the Wrinkle in Time adaptation, saying, "It's just a classic story... There are creatures; there are different planets. To think about, 'wow, I could design those planets—that stuff is rare air. And so immediately I was like, 'I'm in. I'm so in.' And it's fun every single day."
