IFC Midnight Giving What We Become a Friday the 13th Release


Laying claim to the distinct honor of being Denmark’s very first post-apocalyptic zombie movie, Bo Mikkelsen’s What We Become (aka Sorgenfri) was recently scooped up for Stateside release by IFC Midnight, and today they’ve spilled the beans on their release plan. Read on for details.

What We Become will open on Friday, May 13th, in New York at the IFC Center and Los Angeles at the Arena Theater and will also be available for digital streaming through all major VOD outlets on the very same day. We love when that happens.

Written and directed by Mikkelsen, film stars Mille Dinesen, Troels Lyby, Benjamin Engell, and Marie Hammer Boda.

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 come under attack from the riotous, bloodthirsty mob which forces them to the extreme to escape alive.
