Midnight Special, the first major studio film by indie director Jeff Nichols (Mud) has been moved from its Nov. 25 release date to March 18. Distributor Warner Bros. provided no explanation for the change, though the studio just last week pegged its Sandra Bullock-starrer Our Brand is Crisis (originally scheduled for 2016) to an Oct. 30 release date. And the busy studio also has seven other films on its fall slate, including Pan, Point Break, and Creed.

Featuring Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton, Kirsten Dunst, and Adam Driver, the science-fiction-oriented Midnight Special has been shrouded in secrecy. What’s known is that it concerns a father who goes on the lam with his 8-year-old son after the boy reveals supernatural abilities.

We’ll have to wait nine months to know if the film was worth the long wait. Meanwhile, Nichols has already announced his next project, a very unsupernatural dramatization of the historic Loving v. Virginia court case, also starring Edgerton.

Though the 2016 release means it won’t be competing for this year’s Oscars, Midnight Special could still profit from the delay. Nichols could do much worse than having one of the actors from the year’s most highly anticipated movie — Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ lead bad guy, Driver — high up in the cast list of his movie. Star Wars, opening on Dec. 18, might even still in theaters by the time Midnight Special hits screens in March.

The July 24th issue of Entertainment Weekly has an article on Fargo Season 2. Here’s part of the article.

Ready for a closer look at season 2 of Fargo?

Here are two new photos that give you a better idea of the new characters populating FX’s acclaimed anthology drama, which rolls back the clock this fall to 1979. Above is beautician Peggy Blumquist (Kirsten Dunst) and her devoted butchers assistant husband Ed (Jesse Plemons). On the surface, they’re the “normal” ones — until Peggy gets them pulled into a gangland war. “I have such an awesome arc to play, it’s like a 10-hour movie,” Dunst tells EW. “It really escalates.” As Peggy’s supportive and somewhat dim husband, Plemons will shed his creepy “Ricky Hitler” persona from Breaking Bad. “He’s unfortunately, or fortunately, madly devoted to his wife,” Plemons says.

Below, is the Blumquists along with local crime matriarch Floyd Gerhardt (Jean Smart), state cop Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson, playing a decades-younger version of the character who was introduced in the show’s first season and played by Keith Carradine)and Sheriff Hank Larsson (Ted Danson).”

The magazine also features a photoshoot of various Fargo cast members by photographer Art Streiber. I’ve added two great pics featuring Kirsten to the gallery. Credit to Entertainment Weekly & Art Streiber for use of the pics.
