Having special powers would be pretty sweet, right? But, with such power comes great responsibilities, as is the case with Jeff Nichols’ latest flick, Midnight Special. The film is a sci-fi/thriller, which looks pretty dark in parts, and it kinda gives off an almost Steven Spielberg vibe, which is never a bad thing. So, Warner Bros., have just unleashed the new official trailer and we have that for you below along with a slew of images.
The film stars Joel Edgerton, Adam Driver, Kirsten Dunst, Michael Shannon, Jaeden Lieberher, Sam Shepard, Bill Camp, Scott Haze, and Paul Sparks.
Synopsis: 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.
