Variety has given us our first look at the Mondo poster for the upcoming sci-fi drama Midnight Special from director Jeff Nichols. The film, which features Michael Shannon, Adam Driver, and Joel Edgerton, has been getting positive buzz ever since it screened at the Berlin Film Festival in February.
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.
The film is set to screen this weekend at the South By Southwest festival before rolling out to American theaters on March 18th and the UK on April 8th.
