The first trailer for Disney’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day has landed online.  When the adaptation was originally announced, I was curious to find out just how Disney planned on expanding the story of one young boy’s worst day ever into a feature-length film.  Well, this trailer answers that question quite well, as its apparent that it’s not only Alexander who’s having a crappy day, but his entire family.  There’s the expected amount of schmaltz on display, but also a few truly funny one-liners scattered throughout and plenty of physical humor to go around.  Looks like a fun family movie, but it’ll be quite a few months before we get a look at the full film.

Director Miguel Arteta’s adaptation of the Judith Viorst book stars Steve Carell, Jennifer Garner, Bella Thorne, Dylan Minnette, Megan Mullally and Ed Oxenbould, and opens October 10th.  Hit the jump to watch the first Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day trailer. [Update: We’ve also added the first poster.]

The first Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day trailer is available below (via Disney):


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.
“Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” directed by Independent Spirit Award-winner Miguel Arteta (“The Good Girl,” “Cedar Rapids,” “Youth in Revolt”) from a screenplay by Rob Lieber, is a 21 Laps Entertainment/Jim Henson Company production. The film hits theaters nationwide Oct. 10, 2014.
