Neon has released the first official teaser for Crimes of the Future, the latest film from acclaimed director David Cronenberg. Cronenberg made a name for himself in his earlier career with a range of sci-fi/horror classics that include The Fly, Scanners, and Videodrome, and Crimes of the Future appears to be an exciting return to all of that creepiness and madness. The film stars Kristen Stewart, Léa Seydoux, and Viggo Mortensen, who previously starred in Cronenberg’s excellent 2007 crime drama, Eastern Promises. Crimes of the Future will be released in June, as indicated at the end of the teaser.
