Must Watch: Eerie Official Trailer for Michael Shannon's 'Take Shelter'
"Is anyone seeing this?" Sony Pictures Classics has debuted the official trailer for an indie film called Take Shelter, written and directed by Jeff Nichols (Shotgun Stories) that stars Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain. I actually saw this while I was in Cannes and loved it, it's a fantastic, unsettling, but brilliant thriller that blew me away, I loved it. This trailer features some of the very eerie score that makes the movie so good, in my opinion, as well as a sampling of the craziness - it's an outstanding trailer. I really hope some of you take an interest in seeing this, as it does come highly recommended! You've gotta see it to believe it.
Watch the official trailer for Jeff Nichols' Take Shelter, in high def from Yahoo:
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 and has tentatively set an October 7th release this fall. Thoughts?
