Starting today at 8:15am EST/5:15am PST, you can watch a live stream of the Berlinale press conference for Jeff Nichols’ “Midnight Special.” Nichols is expected to attend the conference, as well as various cast members from his secretive new sci-fi outing.
In the film, Michael Shannon plays the father of Jaeden Lieberher’s Alton, an eight-year-old boy with special powers. As religious extremists, local law enforcement and the federal government all try and hunt down the boy, the father must embark on a dangerous quest to bring his son to safety. Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver, Joel Edgerton and Sam Shepard co-star.
Editor’s note: The press conference has now concluded. Stay tuned, as we will bring you the complete video once it is made available on the Berlinale website.
The film will next screen at SXSW and will open in the U.S. on March 18.
