Fox Searchlight has released the trailer for the upcoming Marc Webb-directed indie drama Gifted that stars Chris Evans as a single man raising his math-prodigy niece (McKenna Grace). In theaters April 12, the pic co-stars Octavia Spencer, Lindsay Duncan and Jenny Slate.
Written by Tom Flynn, Gifted tells the story of Frank Adler (Evans), whose plans for a normal life for his spirited niece Mary are interrupted when the 7-year-old’s mathematics abilities come to the attention of Frank’s formidable mother Evelyn (Duncan). Frank is forced to take legal action after his mother’s plans for her granddaughter threaten to separate the two.
FilmNation’s Karen Lunder and Andy Cohen produced the pic.
