I was very happy when I first heard that Disney was taking an old favorite children’s book of mine and turning it into a movie. Needless to say, I’m elated to share the Alexander and the Terrible Horrible movie trailer with you today.
Disclosure: I will be receiving the same prize pack as the winner for hosting this giveaway. Prize packs supplied by Disney.
Alexander and the Terrible Horrible Movie Trailer
“Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” was first published in 1972. Since that time, the book has been enjoyed many times. In fact, one of my classmates performed it as a skit for a talent show in elementary school. Since that time, I’ve become fond of the story as it’s so cute. The fact that I already have a soft spot for this story in addition to the great actors makes me really want to see this film. In case you aren’t as familiar with this one, take a look at its synopsis:
Disney’s “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” follows the exploits of 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) as he experiences the most terrible and horrible day of his young life—a day that begins with gum stuck in his hair, followed by one calamity after another. But when Alexander tells his upbeat family about the misadventures of his disastrous day, he finds little sympathy and begins to wonder if bad things only happen to him. He soon learns that he’s not alone when his mom (Jennifer Garner), dad (Steve Carell), brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) all find themselves living through their own terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Anyone who says there is no such thing as a bad day just hasn’t had one.
Who doesn’t love Steve Carell (you may remember him from The Office, Date Night, or Despicable Me) and Jennifer Garner (loved her in The Odd Life of Timothy Green)? I’m looking forward to seeing these two act in a classic story. Plus, I’m interested to see how Disney turns a short book into a full length feature film. If the Alexander and the Terrible Horrible Movie Trailer is any indicator of how it will be, I think it will be a great family film. Take a look.
So, what do you think of the Alexander and the Terrible Horrible Movie Trailer? Will you be catching this one in theaters on October 10th?
