A new trailer for Midnight Special suggests it could be a modern day classic sci-fi movie in the vein of Close Encounters.
Writer/Director Jeff Nichols appears to have created something special in his latest feature Midnight Special in which a father (Michael Shannon – Man of Steel) goes on the run to protect his son, Alton (Jaeden Lieberher) and seek out the truth behind the boy’s unique powers.
The film exhibits great promise in this second trailer that evokes a similar tone as Steven Spielberg’s 1977 classic sci-fi epic, Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Joel Egerton (Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith), Kirsten Dunst (Spider-Man) and Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) also star.
Midnight Special hits U.S. cinemas from March 18th whilst the U.K must wait until April 8th. Release dates for other regions are limited.
