[Sundance ’13] First Look At The Poster For ‘We Are What We Are’!

Sundance Film Festival just kicked off this weekend and already we’ve got a look at a poster for one of our most anticipated films of the event, Stake Land director Jim Mickle’s We Are What We Are. It’s a remake of Mexican director Jorge Michel Grau’s picture about a family of cannibals that’s been moved from its original setting of Mexico City, to a poor part of the Catskills region in New York State.

In the film, “A devastating storm washes up clues that lead authorities closer and closer to the cannibalistic Parker family.” Cast includes Bill Sage, Ambyr Childers, Julia Garner, Michael Parks, Wyatt Russell and Kelly McGillis.

We managed to snap a look at the poster, which sells cannibalism in a regal and stately manner. Check it out inside!

    I still need to see the original! This looks like a wannabe!

    I have watched the original and wasn’t overly impressed by it. So I would be very interested in seeing how this remake turns out, especially since I loved Stakeland so much. For once a film that actually justifies a remake in my mind.

  • Aaron Emery

    I keep forgetting about this movie. The poster is somewhat generic… Can’t say I have too much hope for this one as I really didn’t care for the original.

  • I kind of want a bowl of tomato soup now, or some v8.

    Copy ‘A Tale of Two Sisters’ some more.

    The setting has been moved to a poor part of the Catskills region, yet cannibalism is depicted in a regal and stately manner. This seems contradictory to me.

    I really enjoyed the first film. Well acted and directed, the sense of family heightened by being shot on location which gave the story authenticity. Too often homes and communities in films are bland and homogenous.

    As I recall, they weren’t cannibals because they were poor, that was their family history. Sort of like being Christian. Now that I think of it, there’s a lot of similarity between the two.

    I like the poster but don’t care to see the film. Original will do just fine for me.

    I just ordered the original through Amazon.

    I found it used and cheap, so if it blows at least it’s a cheap blow.

    Not feeling this remake at all and this poster just seems all wrong. I really liked the original film.
