Luscious Promo Banner for Brandon Cronenberg's 'Antiviral' in Cannes

May 16, 2012


Sex sells, especially in Europe, there's no doubt about that. As I was walking back, I couldn't help (I mean, come on) but notice this new promo banner that had just been installed. Today is officially the first day of the Cannes Film Festival and construction/installation is being completely finished. Antiviral, the first film from David Cronenberg's son Brandon Cronenberg, is premiering in the festival line-up later this week, and it's a film that seems to be on everyone's mind, for the sake of curiosity more than anything. How will it turn out? What is it really about? This banner only adds in more mystery and intrigue - check it out below.

That girl is Sarah Gadon (A Dangerous Method, Cosmopolis), but Antiviral actually stars Caleb Landry Jones. Here's the synopsis from Cannes: Syd is an employee at a clinic that sells injections of live viruses harvested from sick celebrities to obsessed fans. Biological communion - for a price. Syd also supplies illegal samples of these viruses to piracy groups, smuggling them from the clinic in his own body. When he becomes infected with the disease that kills super sensation Hannah Geist, Syd becomes a target for rabid fans and collectors. He must unravel the mystery surrounding her death before he suffers the same fate.

For those curious to see more from this film, a couple of other first look photos already debuted as part of Cannes, featuring Caleb Landry Jones as the lead actor Syd, looking weird I must say. Here's two of ’em:

This looks very interesting. I'll definitely be posting my thoughts on Antiviral once it premieres in Cannes.

ugh. fucking pretentious not to mention this glaring fucking nepotism. Pretentious as in Cronenberg's son is following in the footsteps of his daddy making weird shit. No doubt he got a ton of help from his dad

The Cronenbergs love them some Sarah Gadon. Totally understable though.

Do a sequel to Videodrome.

What's pretentious about a naked chic? I think it the most accessible work I've seen 😉
