Hollis also predicted that "A Wrinkle in Time" has the next four weekends during spring vacations from schools.
With A Wrinkle in Time'sopening weekend competition including smaller fare like Gringo, Thoroughbreds and The Strangers: Prey at Night, it's not shocking that it was the top performer last night. The movie features a predominantly black cast and has become a worldwide cultural phenomenon, making Coogler one of the most in-demand directors in the business. As for its overall opening weekend haul, A Wrinkle in Time's total is expected to be between $44 million and $45 million. The $100 million-plus budgeted film is depending on family audiences to support the film in the coming weeks to push it into profitability. It's based on the 1962 novel by Madeleine L'Engle about a young girl who explores the cosmos in search of her father.
Coogler then called DuVernay's new filmA Wrinkle in Time "beautiful", writing, "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".
