Trailer: Midnight Special

The new trailer for upcoming science fiction movie Midnight Special has arrived – and we’ve got it right here…

Had things gone to plan, then Midnight Special – the new movie from director Jeff Nicholls – would have already been released. Yet the movie was pushed back to a new 2016 slot, and that means we’ve been waiting for some time for Nicholls’ movie. Given that his last two films were Mud and Take Shelter, his work is likely to be worth waiting for.

This time, his cast features Michael Shannon, Kirsten Dunst, Joel Edgerton, Adam Driver, Jaeden Lieberher, Sam Shepard, Paul Sparks, Bill Camp and Scott Haze.


In the sci-fi thriller “Midnight Special,” writer/director Jeff Nichols proves again that he is one of the most compelling storytellers of our time, as a father (Michael Shannon), goes on the run to protect his young son, Alton (Jaeden Lieberher), and uncover the truth behind the boy’s special powers.

What starts as a race from religious extremists and local law enforcement quickly escalates to a nationwide manhunt involving the highest levels of the Federal Government. Ultimately his father risks everything to protect Alton and help fulfill a destiny that could change the world forever, in this genre–defying film as supernatural as it is intimately human.
