Surgery is sex in the new trailer for Cronenberg’s Crimes of the Future

Unless surgical needles and fleshy lumps are your kink, we suggest you divert your gaze

Hold onto your organs for dear life because another trailer for David Cronenberg’s Crimes of the Future has arrived – and it’s as stomach-turning as you would expect. 

Set in a sinister future where many humans can freely alter their bodies without feeling pain, Crimes of the Future marks the auteur’s first release since Maps to the Stars in 2014 – and will premiere at Cannes this May as part of the film festival’s official programme. 

The film stars Viggo Mortensen as Saul Tenser, an avant-garde performer who has a penchant for cutting up his ever-changing organs alongside his partner Caprice, played by Léa Seydoux. Kristen Stewart plays Timlin, an investigator from the National Organ Registry.

As you can imagine, the trailer is filled with copious nerve-wracking shots of flesh and bone being attached to Saul’s body as extensions of his guts. Another shot shows a man with dozens of ears sewn onto his face – so, unless surgical needles and fleshy lumps are your kink, we suggest you divert your gaze.

Catch the trailer below.
