As both a film critic and reporter, I have to sit through a lot of terrible movies. This year I spent hours of my life watching movies like New Yearís Eve, Spy Kids: All The Time in the World, Abduction and Waiting For Forever.

Interview: Jeff Nichols And Michael Shannon Reunite As Family Men For The Haunting Take Shelter Interview: Jeff Nichols And Michael Shannon Reunite As Family Men For The Haunting Take Shelter
Back in January the storms of Take Shelter seemed like a pretty clear allegory for the financial crisis and the incredible pressure put on the shrinking middle class, but then a very strange year of weather patterns emerged, with hurricanes and earthquakes threatening New York and Texas enduring a brutal heat wave and drought. When I caught up with Shannon and Nichols in September at the Toronto Film Festival

Fantastic Fest Day 4: Borderline, Take Shelter, Elite Squad: The Enemy Within Fantastic Fest Day 4: Borderline, Take Shelter, Elite Squad: The Enemy Within

Michael Shannon Reunites With Jeff Nichols For Mud Michael Shannon Reunites With Jeff Nichols For Mud
Over the next few months you can expect to hear a lot about about director Jeff Nichols and Michael Shannon (and I don't just mean because of the latter's role in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel).

It's a very, very good time to release the first trailer for Take Shelter. First there's the fact that the movie's female star, Jessica Chastain, is about to have a major breakout as the star of Terrence Malick's new film Tree of Life, which comes out this weekend

Sundance Review: Take Shelter Is An Unsettling, Gripping American Original Sundance Review: Take Shelter Is An Unsettling, Gripping American Original
It's a strange and often inscrutable movie, and will be a tough sell for distribution even for indie audiences, but it's the kind of thing you've got to check out if given the chance.
