It’s been years since the revered David Cronenberg was in the director’s chair.
Cronenberg fans waited long enough as his next film was showcased at CinemaCon 2022 with Crimes of the Future.
The trailer was released prior to the convention in Las Vegas, but with few plot details and with a strange spectacle that left many viewers wondering on what the film is about.
The film stars Viggo Mortensen, Lea Seydoux, Kristen Stewart, Scott Speedman, Welket Bungue, Don McKellar, Yorgos Pirpassopoulos, Tanaya Beatty, Nadia Litz, Lihi Kornowski, and Denise Capezza.
