During the start of A Wrinkle In Time promotion in the US last month, Reese and Ava DuVernay attended a special event hosted by @BlackGirlsCode to promote the film and champion women of colour in technology roles. Read more below, and find a photo of Reese making a surprise entrance in our Gallery:
A Wrinkle in Time creators encourage girls to channel their inner warriors, pursue their dreams
HP joined Ava DuVernay and Reese Witherspoon to celebrate Black Girls Code and its mission to boost women of color in tech.
Everything starts with a story. Just ask Sasha Williams, a 16-year old with big dreams. On Feb. 24th, Williams didn’t just get a selfie — she got a hug and words of encouragement from Ava DuVernay, the directing powerhouse whose work, from 13th to Selma, tackles inclusion and racial division head on and continues to find new ways to define the art of storytelling.
The occasion was an event organized by HP, Disney and Nissan to bring together girls from Black Girls Code, a nonprofit that nurtures the tech skills of girls of color, to celebrate the release of DuVernay’s big-budget film, A Wrinkle in Time. With seven chapters in the U.S. and South Africa for girls 7 to 17, Black Girls Code runs after-school programs, summer camps and hackathons where local groups build projects ranging from websites to robots.
Giddy and tearful, Williams was electrified by her encounter with the director. “I’ve always looked up to [Ava]” says the young California native, who hopes to one day become a virtual-reality game designer. “And now, for her to take on this story about a little black girl trying to become a warrior, about being who you are, it’s just really inspiring.”
Williams wasn’t the only one energized by the moment. At the event, part coding challenge/part affirmation, 40 or so girls were treated to the first public showing of the film, as well as talks with several of the movie’s stars, including Storm Reid, who plays the story’s hero, Meg Murry; Reese Witherspoon; Chris Pine; and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.
Reese, Mindy Kaling and Oprah appeared on BBC’s The One Show on Monday evening to promote A Wrinkle In Time. They talked about the film in depth, plus Big Little Lies, Reese’s producing career, and their favourite childhood toys. Reese looks so proud when she talks about Big Little Lies! Reese wore a green dress by Roland Mouret. Watch the interview below, or the full show on BBC iPlayer, and find screencaptures in our Gallery:
Reese and her A Wrinkle In Time co-stars and director are now in London where they have started more promotion for the film. Today, they attended a Q&A for the film – watch it below. There will be a red carpet premiere for the film in the city tomorrow evening.
Alongside all the fantastic new magazine scans, TV interviews and A Wrinkle In Time stills (make sure you catch up with all the recent posts), we also have new photoshoots! Reese and her A Wrinkle In Time ladies were photographed for various outlets during the movie’s press weekend at the end of February. There is a portrait session with Mindy Kaling and Oprah for AP, and USA Today have a shoot with the three leading ladies and director Ava DuVernay – we have most of the photos in high quality for you in our Gallery 😀 And last but not least, Marie Claire UK have used a previously unseen photo from the magazine’s photoshoot with Reese – it is so beautiful, and I’ve added it to our Gallery in gorgeous high quality for you!
On a side note, while we’re really glad that people are enjoying our Gallery, we do ask that if re-posting photos on Twitter or other social media and sites that you please leave our tag on and give us a link back. We do object, however, when people re-post every single photo that we post onto their own blog/site etc. – we spend a lot of time collecting and building our Gallery to ensure it is extensive, and it’s disheartening when our work is simply taken without any credit like this. Thanks for understanding.
We’ll have more A Wrinkle In Time promotional interviews and appearance photos for you very soon….
On Thursday, Reese and her A Wrinkle In Time co-stars and director made an appearance at Talks At Google in New York City – they talked in depth about the film, the book, and Ava DuVernay’s interpretation of it for this film. We have a few photos plus screencaptures of the event in our Gallery, but best of all – the whole event is below for you to watch:
Reese remains a popular cover girl around the world – we have scans from Nouveau magazine in the Netherlands, and Malaysian Women’s Weekly for you today, along with some clippings from the People Awards Season Special magazine. I like the feature title of ‘Hollywood’s Guardian Angel’ in Women’s Weekly 😉
Reese can be seen on the cover of the new April issue of Marie Claire UK – it’s the same interview as the earlier US edition, but it has a couple of new photos from the shoot. I love this photoshoot, and I’m glad they’ve chosen a slightly different shot for this cover. Pick up a copy asap if you can, and find the scans in our Gallery:
Reese made an appearance on Good Morning America on Wednesday to promote A Wrinkle In Time. She chatted about her recent visit to her Star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame, Time’s Up, the importance of representing women in film, Big Little Lies season 2, Little Fires Everywhere with Kerry Washington, and her upcoming Untitled Morning TV Show with Jennifer Aniston. Reese also received a special message from Dolly Parton who had been on the show last week; Reese mentioned that she “has a show coming on in about a month” in which she interviews Dolly Parton, so we’ll keep an ear out for more information on that in the coming weeks!
