Walt Disney Pictures have unveiled the first trailer for Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, an adaptation of Judith Viorst’s much loved children’s book of the same name. While the book told of the worst day in a young boy’s life, this trailer shows that the whole family is in for a terrible 24 hours. Even though this is clearly one for the kiddies, it could be a bit of fun for the whole family. We’ll find out come this October.
Starring Steve Carell, Jennifer Garner, Bella Thorne, Dylan Minnette, Megan Mullally, Donald Glover and Ed Oxenbould.
Here’s the trailer for Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. About that title…
Official synopsis for Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day:
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.
