Jeff Nichols’ “Midnight Special” (Warner Bros.) marks the writer-director’s third straight strong opener. Its debut in New York and Los Angeles theaters is the best of the year so far. And three other films that debuted well last week—”Hello, My Name Is Doris,” “Eye in the Sky” and “City of Gold”— also expanded well. Just in time, fresh titles are arriving to fill screens in the anemic post-Oscar period.

“Midnight Special” (Warner Bros.) Criticwire: B+; Metacritic: 78; Festivals include: Berlin, South by Southwest 2016.

$185,000 in 5 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $37,000.

After his successful middle-America dramas “Take Shelter” and “Mud,” director Jeff Nichols went further afield with this sci-fi story about a young boy with religious cult connections. His father (Michael Shannon) tries to protect him from forces trying to track him down, including government officials who are aware of the boy’s apparent unworldly powers. Warner Bros., not incapable of finding platform success beyond Clint Eastwood films — they had a somewhat bigger opening with a December opening of “Her” in 2014 — has made a major commitment to a more niche than usual film. They achieved at a minimum the top limited opening of the year so far (50% better than last weekend’s “Eye in the Sky”) and look to carefully nurture this going forward.

What comes next: This continues its tiered expansion next week, with early results suggesting a real chance that this becomes a significant early year success.

Wow only 5 theaters, I had no idea just how limited an opening the film had. Very impressive figures though.

Exclusive: Kirsten Dunst is joining Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, Janelle Monae, and Kevin Costner in ‘Hidden Figures’. Ted Melfi is directing for Fox 2000. Hidden Figures tells the untold true story of the African-American female mathematicians at NASA who provided the calculations that helped fuel some of America’s greatest achievements in space. The story is told through the personal accounts of the four women known as the “Colored Computers,” and their accomplishment is set against the background of the Jim Crow South and the civil rights movement. Dunst, who’s repped by UTA and Management 360, will next be seen starring in the Jeff Nichols-directed Midnight Special for Warner Bros. The film opens March 18th.                                                                                                                                                                                                 Mike Fleming, deadline.com.

Interesting news. Assuming this is correct it sounds like Kirsten will have a supporting role in the film.

A little more than halfway through the second run of FX’s limited series “Fargo”, the cable net has ordered a third season. Season 1 of the drama from creator Noah Hawley based on the Coen brothers’ 1996 movie won three Emmy Awards including Outstanding Miniseries, and the current sophomore season has been widely praised by critics. No cast or premiere date for Season 3 was announced, but executive producers Hawley, Warren Littlefield, Joel & Ethan Coen, and John Cameron will return.

“Year 2 of Fargo is an extraordinary achievement and, given Noah Hawley’s masterful storytelling, we can’t wait to see where the third, all-new version of Fargo takes us,” said Eric Schrier, who made the announcement with Nick Grad, his fellow President of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions. Fargo is produced by MGM Television and FX Productions, with MGM Television serving as the lead studio.

Season 2 is set in 1979 and stars Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Patrick Wilson, Ted Danson, Jean Smart, Nick Offerman, Brad Garrett and Kieran Culkin. Bruce Campbell plays stumping White House hopeful Ronald Reagan. The first installment’s cast included Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Colin Hanks and Allison Tolman — all of them scoring Emmy noms for their roles.
