Warner Bros. has just released the first trailer for Jeff Nichols’ upcoming sci-fi thriller Midnight Special. The film stars Michael Shannon (Man Of Steel) as a father who goes on the run from relgious extremists and law enforcement in an attempt to protect his young son and to learn the truth about the boy’s special abilities. This is definitely an interesting looking one that touches on how the world would react if someone exhibited these types of special abilites. I might even go as far as saying it feels like a Superman story that was done with a heavier sci-fi influence. Check out the trailer below and let us know if you’ll be adding this to your “to see” list.
Midnight Special hits theaters March 18, 2016.
