The first poster from Jeff Nichols new sci-fi, Midnight Special has just been released. Nichols was the director of fantastic indies, Take Shelter and Mud. Midnight Special reunites director Nichols and Take Shelter star, Michael Shannon.
(plot from wiki)
Roy is a father desperate to protect his uniquely gifted, eight-year-old son Alton. Joined by Joel Edgerton and Kirsten Dunst‘s characters, this group must race to get Alton to a secret location all while being hunted by an extreme religious sect led by Sam Shepard and a government task force headed up by Adam Driver. It is a full-on chase, the outcome of which could bring about a world-changing event.
Really looking forward to this film, I was a big fan of both Take Shelter and Mud, both of them great character driven stories with powerful leads. Midnight Special will offer the same again – Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton and kirtsen Dunst trying to protect a child from a mad religious sect?, that sounds like all the right ingredients for a great, solid indie.
