Entertainment One released today a new trailer for Midnight Special, following the buzz coming from Berlin Film Festival.
Writer/director Jeff Nichols says that one of his chief inspirations for Midnight Special was John Carpenter’s Starman, and the new trailer for this mysterious film evokes that undervalued gem and more. While the preview is intentionally bereft of hard information on plot or characters, the vibe here is totally old school Steven Spielberg. This trailer contains that combination of awe and conspiracy that makes Close Encounters of the Third Kind such an incredible work, but there’s definitely a larger Amblin thing going on here. So many of the films produced under Spielberg’s iconic banner where “family movies” that never avoided going for the throat, genre adventures for all ages that never spoke down to the audience.
The new Midnight Special trailer looks like the paranoid sci-fi of the ’70s collided with a classic ’80s Amblin film and it looks fascinating.
Midnight Special will play the 2016 SXSW Film Festival before opening in theaters on March 18, 2016.
Kirsten attended yesterday the press conference and premiere of “Midnight Special”, and our gallery was updated with over 250 HQ pictures.

According to director Jeff Nichols, the film focuses more on the human than the superhuman, unfolding through the eyes of Roy (Shannon), who plays the father of the boy with special powers who is pursued by the government.
When I wrote it, my son has been born and I was coming to terms with the realities of being a father. That all went into the film. On the one hand, you have my love for those 1980 sci-fi films and wanting to do a chase film through the contemporary South, all at night, with fast cars and high tension. That’s all the fun film-nerd stuff. And on the other, it really is about me trying to figure out what it feels like to be a father.
Midnigh Special is out on March 18.
SWSX is yet to release the full line-up, but has announced some titles that will be presenting at the festival this year.
