MIDNIGHT SPECIAL Arrives on DVD & Blu 6/21; Digital HD 6/7

ms-07802Writer/director Jeff Nichols proves again that he is one of the most compelling storytellers of our time with the sci-fi thriller Midnight Special. A provocative, genre-defying film as supernatural as it is intimately human, Midnight Special follows a father, Roy (Michael Shannon), who goes on the run to protect his young son, Alton (Jaeden Lieberher), a boy with mysterious powers that even Roy himself cannot comprehend.

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. Risking everything, Roy is committed to helping Alton reach his ultimate purpose, whatever that might be and whatever it costs, in a story that takes audiences on a perilous journey from Texas to the Florida coast, while exploring the bonds of love and trust, and the nature of faith.

Discover the truth when Midnight Special arrives onto Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. The film stars Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (99 Homes, Man of Steel), Joel Edgerton (Black Mass), Kirsten Dunst (TV’s Fargo), Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Jaeden Lieberher (St. Vincent) and Oscar nominee Sam Shepard (The Right Stuff, August Osage County). This all-star cast brings to life a suspenseful and heroic story about fatherhood and protecting the ones you love.

Jeff Nichols (Mud,Take Shelter) directed the film from his own screenplay. It is produced by Oscar nominee Sarah Green (The Tree of Life, Mud) and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (the Insidious films, Sinister), who previously collaborated with Nichols on his critically acclaimed thriller, “Take Shelter.” Glen Basner (Mud), Hans Graffunder (Somebody Up There Likes Me), and Christos V. Konstantakopoulos (Take Shelter) served as executive producers.

Midnight Special will be available on June 21 on Blu-ray for $29.98, and includes the film in high definition on Blu-ray disc and a digital version of the movie in Digital HD with UltraViolet*. Fans can also own Midnight Special via purchase from digital retailers beginning on June 7.
