Father saves son's destiny in MIDNIGHT SPECIAL



A father on the run from religious extremists and law enforcers to protect his son and fulfill a destiny that may change the world forever in MIDNIGHT SPECIAL - Warner Bros Pictures' new offering this summer, opening April 20 in select theaters.
In the film, a father (Michael Shannon), goes on the run to protect his young son, Alton (Jaeden Lieberher), and uncover the truth behind the boy’s special powers. What starts as a race from religious extremists and local law enforcement quickly escalates to a nationwide manhunt involving the highest levels of the Federal Government. Ultimately his father risks everything to protect Alton and help fulfill a destiny that could change the world forever, in this genre–defying film as supernatural as it is intimately human. See trailer below:

“Midnight Special” stars Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (“Revolutionary Road,” “Man of Steel”), Joel Edgerton (“Black Mass”), Kirsten Dunst (TV’s “Fargo”), Adam Driver (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens”) Jaeden Lieberher (“St. Vincent,” TV’s “Masters of Sex”) and Oscar nominee Sam Shepard (“August Osage County”).
