Bringing a beloved children's book to life on the big screen, Jennifer Garner and Steve Carell filmed "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" in Los Angeles on Tuesday (August 27).

The "13 Going on 30" star looked cute in a patterned blouse and black pants, with a blazer tied around her waist while her on-screen hubby wore a gray suit.

In the family flick, Alexander wakes up with gum in his hair, and things just get worse as his day progresses.

Directed by Miguel Arteta, the movie also stars Bella Thorne, Kerris Dorsey, Dylan Minnette, and Toni Trucks.
