Warner Bros. Pushes Back Sci-Fi Flick Midnight Special to March 2016 Release

Looks like we'll be waiting another four months for Midnight Special!

This first major studio production from indie favorite Jeff Nichols (who directed the earlier critically-acclaimed Grand Prix recipient Mud) was originally slated for a Thanksgiving 2015 release. The film was bumped back to a March 18, 2016 release date by Warner Bros.

Midnight Special - Michael Shannon and Kirsten Dunst

Midnight Special, described by writer/director Nichols as a "sci-fi chase" film inspired by John Carpenter, wrapped filming and has been lingering in post-production as of early 2014.

The film stars Michael Shannon as a father who discovers that his young son possesses supernatural powers and consequently flees with him, dodging a religious sect led by Sam Shepard and a government agency headed by Adam Driver.
