Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is exactly what it says on tin – a movie about a monumentally bad day, not just for Alexander Cooper, but his entire family. It’s a slight film adapted from and expanding on a very slim children’s book, but it is both funnier and more affecting than expected – in the old-fashioned Disney manner.
Disney’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is the first live action adaptation of the award-winning children’s book written by Judith Viorst. It details the day that Alexander’s seemingly endless bad luck infects the rest of his hitherto very fortunate family members.
Disney has released two posters that seem to depict the family at the start of the day and and its conclusion. The ‘after’ poster follows the jump. Disney’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day debuts on October 10th.
