Midnight Special gets a thrilling first trailer

With Shotgun StoriesTake Shelter and Mud, Jeff Nichols quietly established himself as one of the most exciting filmmakers working in America right now. By the look of things, he’s not about to let anyone down with his fourth feature – and fourth collaboration with the great Michael Shannon – which EOne have just released an intriguing if spoiler-y first teaser for. Anyone else getting serious Spielberg vibes?
