Gimmicky? Sure. But cute, clownish? No.
Not even a joke about “We have PLENTY of Neanderthals ALREADY,” not in the trailer anyway.
“William” is about a scientist couple who decide to give birth (via DNA swap) to a Neanderthal (young) man and its consequences to him, his peers and science.
Tim Disney directed it. I knew his dad, Roy.
It opens in limited release April 12.
