Sometimes, letting yourself get too feverishly excited about an upcoming film can backfire. But a letdown doesn’t seem imminent with Jeff Nichols’ upcoming scifi thriller Midnight Special, which has a fantastic cast (Michael Shannon, Adam Driver, Kirsten Dunst) and gives off major Spielberg-meets-Carpenter vibes.


We’ve drooled over all the trailers and the poster thus far, and Indiewire’s Playlist just debuted these three TV clips, giving us even more to look forward to. After premiering at the Berlin Film Festival, Midnight Special will make its stateside debut at SXSW and (finally) come out March 18.
