“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.”
There are also two new posters:
Is the boy a mutant of some kind? Or is he the result of alien DNA manipulations? What do you think?

Release date: March 18, 2016.
Update – About those coordinates at the end of of this trailer of Midnight Special:
– I searched the coordinates 34.1768, 118.3523 in Google Map but it leads to some lost place in China, so I was confused.
– But then LordObama, a clever fellow movie fan over at IMDb, pointed out that we should actually search for 34.1768, -118.3523. And the corrected coordinates points to someone’s backyard in Burbank, California.
– Warner bros does have a big facility in Burbank. But I still fail to see the connection with the film.
– I also learned that a late-night musical variety series that aired on NBC during the 1970s and called “The Midnight Special” was produced in the Burbank Studios (formerly known as NBC Studios).
And I then stumbled upon a song performed by Genesis at the show: “watcher of the skies” and the lyrics could be related to the film, not sure.
