Steve Carell and Jennifer Garner star in Disney’s extended adaptation of the childhood classic
Alexander will not be the only one in his family having a… bad day.
The first trailer for Disney’s adaptation of the classic 1972 children’s book “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” answers a big question: Just how would writer Rob Lieber and director Miguel Arteta turn a short, to-the-point book into a full-blown narrative film?
Well, unlike in the book, when the young protagonist suffers through a comedy of mini-tragedies in a cursed day (and pines for an escape to far-off Australia), the film version finds his whole family running into endless bouts of bad luck and varying degrees of endangerment.
The film hits theaters on October 10.
