Watch: Trailer for David Cronenberg’s sci-fi horror Crimes of the Future drops

Fans of cult filmmaker David Cronenberg will be delighted to see him return to his roots with the new sci-fi horror film Future Crimes, the director’s first film in eight years.

Slated to debut at the Cannes Film Festival next month, a trailer has just been released for the new film, which sees the author return to the sci-fi body horror genre that rose to prominence for the first time in the 1980s with films like Scanners, Videodrome and The Fly.

In a word

After branching out, not always successfully, into other genres with award-winning films like Crash, Cosmopolis and A History of Violence, Cronenberg reunites with Viggo Mortensen for the new techno horror Crimes of the Future.

In the new film, Mortensen plays Saul Tenser, a celebrated performance artist who publicly showcases the metamorphosis of his organs in cutting-edge performances. Adorable stuff.

Also starring Léa Seydoux as a partner and Kristen Stewart as a National Organ Registry investigator, the film is described as “a deep dive into a not-so-distant future in which humanity learns to adapt to its synthetic environment”.

As with many of his previous works, the film will see the 79-year-old veteran filmmaker Cronenberg examine what happens when human biology and technology merge, with potentially horrific results.
