Neon Release Date for David Cronenberg Pic

Neon has announced the release date for David Cronenberg’s latest installment of sci-fi body horror, Future Crimes, whose world premiere will take place this year at the Cannes Film Festival. The film, which stars Viggo Mortensen, Kristen Stewart, and Léa Seydoux, is set to arrive in select theaters in New York and Los Angeles on June 3. It will be followed by a wide theatrical release on June 10.

Future Crimes is a meditation on human evolution. Specifically, how we had to take control of the process because we created such powerful environments that didn’t exist before,” Cronenberg said in a statement. “It’s an evolution of things I’ve done before. Fans will see key references to other scenes and moments from my other films. It’s a continuation of my understanding of technology as a connection to the human body. Technology is always an extension of the human body, even when it seems very mechanical and not human…”

Set in the not-so-distant future, Future Crimes is written and directed by David Cronenberg (Fly, Maps to the stars). It stars Viggo Mortensen, Kristen Stewart, Léa Seydoux, Scott Speedman, Welker Bungué, Don McKellar, Lihi Kornowski, Tanaya Beatty, Nadia Litz, Yorgos Karamichos, and Yorgos Pirpassopoulos.
