Design an alternative poster for Midnight Special


From acclaimed filmmaker Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter, Mud) comes a genre-defying thriller starring long-time collaborator Michael Shannon (Take Shelter, 99 Homes) alongside a brilliant ensemble cast including Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Girls), Kirsten Dunst (Fargo, Spider-Man), Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Sam Shepard (Bloodline, Mud) and talented newcomer Jaeden Lieberher (St Vincent).

Roy (Michael Shannon) is a father desperate to protect his uniquely gifted eight-year-old son in this gripping take on the sci-fi movie, which proves once again that director Jeff Nichols is one of the most compelling storytellers of our time. As father and son go on the run, an intense chase ensues as they are hunted down by a mysterious cult and a clandestine government agency – the outcome of which could bring about a world-changing event.
