Following its premiere at the Berlin Film Festival over the weekend, Entertainment One has released a new trailer and UK poster for Midnight Special, Jeff Nichols’ sci-fi thriller starring Michael Shannon (Take Shelter, 99 Homes), Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Girls), Kirsten Dunst (Fargo, Spider-Man), Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Sam Shepard (Bloodline, Mud) and talented newcomer Jaeden Lieberher (St Vincent).
Roy (Michael Shannon) is a father desperate to protect his uniquely gifted, eight-year-old son in this genre-defying thriller which proves once again that director Jeff Nichols is one of the most compelling storytellers of our time. As father and son go on the run, an intense chase ensues as they are hunted down by a mysterious cult and a clandestine government agency – the outcome of which could bring about a world-changing event.
Midnight Special is set for release on March 18th in North America and April 8th in the UK.
