Following its premiere at the Berlin Film Festival over the weekend, Entertainment One UK Ltd has released the new trailer and UK poster to Jeff Nichols’ sci-fi thriller Midnight Special.
From acclaimed filmmaker Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter, Mud) comes a sci-fi thriller starring long-time collaborator Michael Shannon (Take Shelter, 99 Homes) alongside a brilliant ensemble cast including 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 released in UK and Irish cinemas on April 8th.
