You hear Haddish say “she ready” a lot, in interviews, in her upcoming Showtime stand-up special — Haddish’s production company is even called She Ready Productions. When she says it, don’t think of it as a catchphrase. Really, it’s a mantra.

“Me and my cousins, we came up with it when we were young and trying to sneak into clubs,” she told IndieWire in a phone interview. “When we would come out of the house and you looked cute we’d be like, ‘Yeah, she ready.’ And if you looked bad, we’d be like, ‘Uh uh, she not ready, go back in the house. »

Trailer Watch: Take an Epic Adventure with Oprah in Ava DuVernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time”

17 July 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Storm Reid as Meg in “A Wrinkle in Time

“Your father has accomplished something extraordinary — also dangerous,” Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey) tells Meg Murry (Storm Reid). “He’s trapped by a darkness that’s actively spreading throughout the universe. And the only one who can stop it is you.” So begins the main plot of Ava DuVernay’s “A Wrinkle in Time.”

Adapted by “Frozen’s” Jennifer Lee, “A Wrinkle in Time” is based on Madeleine L’Engle’s 1963 fantasy novel of the same name. As the new trailer establishes, the film is about Meg, whose scientist father (Chris Pine) has gone missing. After receiving a visit from the mystical Mrs. Which and her cohorts Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon) and Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling), Meg goes on a journey through time and space to save her father and the world.

“You’re going to be tested every step of the way. Trust nothing,” Mrs. Who warns Meg. “The only thing faster than light is the darkness.”

A Wrinkle in Time” is the third $100 million-pls movie to be directed by a woman (Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman” was the first) — and the first movie of its budget to be helmed by a black woman. DuVernay’s other credits include “Queen Sugar,” “Selma,” and “13th.” The Oscar-nominated director recently signed on to write and direct a five-part miniseries about the Central Park Five for Netflix.

Also starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Zach Galifianakis, and André Holland (“Moonlight”), “A Wrinkle in Time” opens March 9, 2018.
