Love ‘em or hate ‘em, have to appreciate a director who really knows what they’re about. Some are about getting all horny for water. Others are about getting all horny for nightmarish body horror. David Cronenberg firmly belongs in the latter category, and he reaffirms as much with the trailer for his latest, Crimes of the Future. Have a look.
The film sees Cronenberg regular Viggo Mortensen as a “celebrity performance artist [who] publicly showcases the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances.” Léa Seydoux and Kristen Stewart co-star in this tale of “the next phase of human evolution.” Seems Marvel Studios is going to have to look for a new tagline for their X-Men reboot.
It is definitely going to be criminally gross—and in just the near future. Crimes of the Future hits theaters this June. What a fun summer flick!
