Midnight Special Theatrical Trailer (2016)
Theatrical trailer for Midnight Special, starring Adam Driver and Kirsten Dunst.
Second trailer for Midnight Special makes it a point to show more of Adam Driver, who recently made a big splash with moviegoers courtesy of his role as Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
With an original release set for November 25, 2015, Warner Bros announced that it would push Midnight Special back about 5 months to March 18, 2016. Though the studio didn't exactly say why, there are a few theories...
1. Early screenings of the film were super positive, giving Warner Bros the greenlight they were hoping to pump a bit more budget into the film and upgrade some of the VFX.
3. Maybe a bit of 1 and 2?
Looks like someone is having a flare up
Bit of honesty here--I wasn't at all impressed with the first trailer for Midnight Special. It looked interesting but, in the end, boring. But now with the film's theatrical trailer, I see something more akin to Starman, a film that I absolutely adore.
And, as mentioned above, the visuals do look improved, which is a plus considering that the supporting cast in Midnight Special is nothing short of exceptional. Michael Shannon, Adam Driver, Joel Edgerton and Sam Shepard? Awesome. Bring in a splash of estrogen with Kirsten Dunst -- who I feel has taken an interesting turn in her film career -- and we can almost declare this film as an ensemble picture.
Everything about Midnight Special screams classic sci-fi -- please refer to my Starman reference -- and in a single two-minute preview we've gone from doubters to believers.
