Acclaimed Danish horror “WHAT WE BECOME” sets U.S. release date


Something’s rotten in Denmark, but it makes for a much-praised film in WHAT WE BECOME, which is headed for U.S. theatrical dates next month.

IFC Films has announced that WHAT WE BECOME, written and directed by Bo Mikkelsen, will open Friday, May 13 under the IFC Midnight banner, at New York City’s IFC Center and Los Angeles’ Arena Theatre. It’ll also be available on VOD via all digital platforms the same day. Mille Dinesen, Troels Lyby, Benjamin Engell and Marie Hammer Boda star in the movie, which played a number of festivals last year; the synopsis: ”The Johansson family’s idyllic summer is brought to an abrupt halt as deaths stack up from a virulent strand of the flu. The authorities start off by cordoning off the neighborhood, but soon panic and force the inhabitants into quarantine in their hermetically sealed houses. Isolated from the rest of the world, teen Gustav spies out and realizes that the situation is getting out of control. He breaks out, but soon the family of four comes under attack from the riotous, bloodthirsty mob who forces them to the extreme to escape alive.” Check out the trailer below.
