Does It Matter If Adults Like A WRINKLE IN TIME If Kids Love It?

Does It Matter If Adults Like A WRINKLE IN TIME If Kids Love It?

The first reviews for A Wrinkle in Time are in and they’re mixed, but does it even matter if adults like the movie so long as kids do? We discussed that on today’s Nerdist News Talks Back, along with George R.R. Martin focusing on work, and if Lucasfilm is overdoing it with their Solo: A Star Wars Story cross promotion.

Jessica Chobot was joined today by writer and performer Amy Vorpahl, managing editor Alicia Lutes, and Nerdist News writer Joey Clift. They began with George R.R. Martin’s announcement he’s way too busy to continue blogging these days. It’s a trade-off, but maybe we’re happier to get books from him rather than updates. Do we wish he had done that before Game of Thrones passed the novels?

The first reviews for A Wrinkle in Time started dropping today, and while some are glowing others are calling it a mess. But if it’s a kid’s story made and targeted for kids, does it matter if it does well with grown-ups?

Finally, Lucasfilm announced a bunch of corporate tie-ins for Solo, including official red–of course–Solo cups. Are we going to buy some Solo-Solo cups?

Don’t forget Nerdist News Talks Back airs live on our YouTube and Alpha channels Monday through Thursday at 1 p.m. PT, and Nerdist News What the Fridays, our all new hour-long recap of the week in pop culture, airs live Fridays also at 1 p.m. PT, exclusively at Alpha. It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, neat or a mess, we always want you to tune in and be a part of the conversation with us.
