With a premiere like this, who needs the Oscars?

Oprah Winfey and Reese Witherspoon led the red carpet at Monday night's world premiere of A Wrinkle in Time, hailed as one of the biggest movies of the year - with a dynamic cast also featuring Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine and Zach Galifinakis. Based on the 1962 novel, it tells the story of a young girl (played by Storm Reid) who sets off on a quest to find her father with the help of three astral travelers.

Ava DuVernay is directing the film, making history as the first female black director to helm a film with a budget of over $100 million. It's an important film at an important time, so last night's showing at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood attracted additional star power in the form of Ellen Pompeo, Salma Hayek, Eva Longoria, Laura Dern and Angela Bassett, among others.
