DuVernay, Reid, Pine, Winfrey and Witherspoon came out to big applause.

 

“What if we are here for a reason? What if we are part of something truly divine? Imagine, 91 billion light years traveled like that.”  Pine says, before shown being trapped in a strange room.

The trailer, set to a cover of “Sweet Dreams,” features ambitious set pieces and ambitious designs.
