Trailer Tuesday: “Take Shelter”

This trailer literally took my breath away. Take Shelter is a suspenseful look at a man at odds with himself, unsure if his visions are schizophrenia or actual premonitions of a coming disaster. Jeff Nichols both writes and directs, his sophomore followup to Shotgun Stories, also starring Michael Shannon. Shannon is a recognizable character actor that you’ve probably seen in 8 Mile and Boardwalk Empire, but it’s nice to see him take on the role of leading man. Shea Wingham is also a familiar face, he recently appeared in The Lincoln Lawyer and also plays on Boardwalk Empire. Jessica Chastain, who came out of nowhere (read: a short run on Law & Order) to a starring role opposite Brad Pitt and Sean Penn in The Tree of Life, rounds out the cast. Take a look at Take Shelter, it reminds me of the glory days of suspense films and I can’t wait to see it!
