What do you do when you're convinced the world is going to end, but the rest of the world thinks you're crazy? Give in, or dig in? The first trailer for Take Shelter, gives an end-of-the-world ultimatum.
Take Shelter got a lot of great buzz coming out of Sundance, and we're happy to see it's getting pushed harder (possibly due to the recent popularity of Rapture predictions). We've loved star Michael Shannon in just about everything he's been in, from Pearl Harbor to Revolutionary Road, and this apocalyptic drama is right in his wheelhouse. Here's the official summary and a new clip!
Curtis LaForche lives in a small Ohio town with his wife Samantha and six-year-old daughter Hannah, who is deaf. Curtis makes a modest living as a crew chief for a sand-mining company. Samantha is a stay-at-home mother and part-time seamstress who supplements their income by selling handmade wares at the flea market each weekend. Money is tight, and navigating Hannah's healthcare and special needs education is a constant struggle. Despite that, Curtis and Samantha are very much in love and their family is a happy one. Then Curtis begins having terrifying dreams about an encroaching, apocalyptic storm. He chooses to keep the disturbance to himself, channeling his anxiety into the obsessive building of a storm shelter in their backyard….
The release date is still unknown, but we'll keep you posted.
