The classic children’s book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day is getting the Hollywood treatment. And based on the new trailer, it looks like the moviemakers were very liberal with the original storyline.

One of Alexander’s brothers has become a sister, and instead of just Alexander having a bad day, the whole family seems to be having a rough time.
