This is a trailer for one of those movies that has just crept up on us, a while ago we knew little about this science fiction movie and now with this trailer release we find that we are looking for forward to it. The story focuses on a boy with special powers, but the establishment does not want the boy to be free and so a pursuit begins. Can the agents working for government, the church and the police find the boy before the truth about his powers is known?
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.
The movie stars Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton, Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver, Jaeden Lieberher, Sam Shepard, Bill Camp, Scott Haze and Paul Sparks. It will be in cinemas from March, for more details, news and an insight into the movie go to the Midnight Special movie website.
