New Images From Jeff Nichols' 'Midnight Special' Starring Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton, And Kirsten Dunst

While The Big Movie of March 2016 is surely “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice,” Warner Bros. has another movie opening that I’m much more excited about —Jeff Nichols‘ long awaited “Midnight Special.” Today, a few more images have dropped to tease the movie, but plot details are still thin on the ground.

Joel Edgerton, Adam Driver, Kirsten Dunst, Michael Shannon, Jaeden Lieberher and Sam Shepard star in a sci-fi thriller about a young boy with special powers who is wanted by government officials and religious extremists and who goes on the run with his father. It seems like the picture will be mixing different genres, and given that Nichols is behind the apocalyptic domestic drama “Take Shelter” and the almost fairy tale like “Mud,” that sounds about right.

“Midnight Special” opens on March 18th.
