Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.16.15] scifi thriller adventure

It almost seems inevitable that even the most erudite and eccentric filmmakers come full circle to create a film that evokes their childlike love of film. And if you haven't checked out Nichols oeuvre, just forget Mud and check out both Shotgun Stores and Take Shelter. Yes, we are excited.

In the case of Jeff Nichols, the director behind such astounding films as Take Shelter and Mud, that film is Midnight Special, a project that stems from the filmmaker's love of the Spielbergian era, particular films like Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T., Starman.

In his own words speaking to EW, Midnight special is "my sci-fi chase film" (EW).

The first image from the film has emerged from the film which gives us our first look at the cast which includes Joel Edgerton, Michael Shannon and Kirsten Dunst. The film also stars Adam Driver and Sam Shephard.

Midnight Special opens in theaters March 18th, 2016.

More as it comes, Folks!
