The March issue of Empire Magazine has a first look on the upcoming Midnight Special, starring Kirsten and Michael Shannon. The feature has a new picture of Kirsten and Jaeden Lieberher.

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.
