Take Shelter

Time for a break from all the superheroes for a bit of Michael Shannon. Our friends at Movieline have debuted the first official poster for Jeff Nichols' Take Shelter, the indie drama starring Michael Shannon and Tree of Life's Jessica Chastain about a small town family dealing with an impending apocalypse. It's a bit hard to describe (just go see it). This poster has a perfectly eerie feeling to it that captures the film's tone, even though the birds aren't a big part (they are important). It's a great indie poster design, eye-catching yet still inspired by the film itself. I hope this gets a few more people interested in seeing (trailer here) this film!

Jeff Nichols' Take Shelter Poster

Plagued by a series of apocalyptic visions, a young husband and father (Michael Shannon) living in rural Ohio questions whether to shelter his family from a coming storm, or just from himself and his delusions.

Take Shelter is both written and directed by American filmmaker Jeff Nichols, also director of that other Michael Shannon indie Shotgun Stories, previously. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year and also played in the Cannes Critics' Week side (where I saw it) to much acclaim. Sony Pictures Classics is bringing Take Shelter to limited theaters starting September 30th this fall. Watch the official trailer here.

    This movie looks like it's gonna be great. I can't believe I've not heard of this before now. Surely this has popped up on Twitch once or twice, yes?
