In the gloopy, a disgruntled, unsettling trailer for David Cronenberg's new film Crimes of the Future, where Kristen Stewart, Viggo Mortensen, and Lea Seydoux star in a comeback to the director of Existenz.
"Although the human species adapts to a synthetic environment," says the Crimes of the Future's synopsis, "the body undergoes new transformations and mutations," Mortensen plays a prominent artist who publicly showcases his organs in avant-garde performances. He and Seydoux are the subject of an obsessive investigator played by Stewart, and the group is set to reveal the next phase of human evolution, which will presumably be very strange and quite squelchy
Crimes of the Future is described as a "evolution of things I have done before" fans will see key references to other scenes and moments from my previous films. This is a continuity of my understanding of how human beings have evolved in order to solve the challenges we have identified. Can the human body evolve a process to digest plastics and artificial materials not only as a response to the climate issue, but also to grow, thrive, and survive?"
Crimes of the Future reintroduces Cronenberg's first feature, but it's not a remake of the 1970 film, although Cronenberg wrote the script in the late 1990s and stowed it off to address today's concerns. More recently he made less bizarre films like A History of Violence, Eastern Promises, and his most recent, Maps to the Stars in 2014.
Following the release of Crimes of the Future at the Cannes film festival in 2022, top Gun: Maverick, Baz Luhrmann's Elvis biopic, and new films from Claire Denis, Kelly Reichardt, and George Miller (as well as David Lynch) are among the films included.
