The 2013 Cannes Film Festival lineup is virtually complete, though an Out of Competition selection or two may still be announced. This morning from Paris the fest announced their full Directors' Fortnight (Quinzaine) selection, which we already knew would open with Ari Folman's The Congress, but added to that are a couple of Sundance features including Sebastian Silva's Magic Magic starring Michael Cera, Juno Temple, Emily Browning, Catalina Sandino and Agustin Silva and Jim Mickle's cannibal feature We are What We are. Additionally, Ruairi Robinson arrives with Last Days on Mars, a sci-fi thriller starring Liev Schreiber, Romola Garai and Elias Koteas centered on a group of astronaut explorers who succumb one by one to a mysterious and terrifying force while collecting specimens on Mars.

Repping Chile, we have Sebastián Silva’s Magic Magic (review) which is joined by another Sundance preemed title in Jim Mickle’s We Are What We Are (fittingly this is the remake of Somos lo que hay (which was featured in the section in 2010). Upping the sci-fi quotient by joining the already announced The Congress, we find Ruairi Robinson highly anticipated feature debut with Last Days On Mars.
