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.]
