The Sundance Film Festival is the premiere fest for independent cinema.
Today they’ve begun unloading their announcements, and while the Midnight titles won’t be revealed until tomorrow, we have found two genre films playing in other Sundance programs.
Pictured above and in the below gallery is The Witch, hailing out of the U.S. and Canada.
Robert Eggers both writes and directs with Anya Taylor Joy, Ralph Ineson, Kate Dickie, Harvey Scrimshaw, Lucas Dawson, Ellie Grainger starring.
“New England in the 1630s: William and Katherine lead a devout Christian life with five children, homesteading on the edge of an impassable wilderness. When their newborn son vanishes and crops fail, the family turns on one another. Beyond their worst fears, a supernatural evil lurks in the nearby wood.”
Craig Zobel’s Z for Zachariah will also premiere.
“In a post-apocalyptic world, a young woman who believes she is the last human on Earth meets a dying scientist searching for survivors. Their relationship becomes tenuous when another survivor appears. As the two men compete for the woman’s affection, their primal urges begin to reveal their true nature.”
Cast includes Chiwetel Ejiofor, Margot Robbie, and Chris Pine.
