Loving First Look

Get your first look at the new Jeff Nichols film before we even get a first look at the other new Jeff Nichols film! Jeff Nichols, director of the fantastic films Take Shelter, Mud and Shotgun Stories, finished a sci-fi film for Warner Bros called Midnight Special. They pushed it back to next March, so in the meantime, Nichols went on to shoot his next film. He's now in production in Virginia on Loving, a drama inspired by Nancy Buirski's 2011 documentary The Loving Story about an interracial couple jailed for marrying in 1958. The two starring as that couple are Joel Edgerton as Richard, and Ruth Negga as Mildred Loving.

Here's the first look for Jeff Nichols' Loving with Joel Edgerton & Ruth Negga, found via The Playlist:

Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple, are sentenced to prison in Virginia in 1958 for getting married. For nine years the couple fought for their marriage and the right to return home as a family. Loving is being directed by filmmaker Jeff Nichols (of Shotgun Stories, Take Shelter, Mud, Midnight Special), from a screenplay that he wrote, inspired by the 2011 doc The Loving Story. The cast includes Michael Shannon with Nick Kroll, Marton Csokas, Jon Bass and Bill Camp. We'll keep an eye out for more updates and details on when/where to expect this to premiere, since it's still filming now. In the meantime, Warner Bros will one day release Nichols' other film Midnight Special - likely before Loving gets released.

    Why aren't WB promoting Midnight Special??
    • I think they're waiting until the holiday season and then will push it more once we're into 2016.

        The fact they are confident enough to release it 1 week before Batman V Superman means it should be good right?...

    This looks like it's going to be incredible. Joel Edgerton is a phenomenal actor, check him out in Warrior and Animal Kingdom. Hopefully we get to see something for Midnight Special sometime soon. I was hoping that film would be a potential Oscar contender, but it seems that Warner Bros. want the movie to flop since they're putting it up against their own Batman v. Superman.

    That looks great! // Although now when ever I see Ruth Negga I can't help but be reminded of her character on AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.

    I don't see why the jews in hollywood feel the need to make movies about edgy interacial topics. Fucking pointless dribble
  • Charles Knowlton
    Always great to see a new Jeff Nichols film. I just hope he can't be bought and end up making superhero films.
  • Katelyne Parker
    Can't wait for the November release. The correlation with the newly released groundbreaking book, HOSANNA by Katelyne Parker, deals with the historical milestones leading up to the landmark Supreme Court, Loving vs. Virginia, in 1967.
