David Cronenberg (Scanners, Videodrome, The Dead Zone, The Fly, A History of Violence) is back!
Last month brought a first look at the filmmaker’s new sci-fi/horror project titled Crimes of the Future, which teased some highly intriguing body horror. At the time of the teaser’s release, Crimes of the Future was promised to release exclusively in theaters in June. 
Officially confirmed this week, NEON has set the Crimes of the Future release date for NY and LA theaters on June 3 before expanding wide on June 10.

In the film, “As the human species adapts to a synthetic environment, the body undergoes new transformations and mutations. With his partner, Caprice (Léa Seydoux), Saul Tenser (Viggo Mortensen), a celebrity performance artist, publicly showcases the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances.
“Timlin (Kristen Stewart), an investigator from the National Organ Registry, obsessively tracks their movements, which is when a mysterious group is revealed… Their mission – to use Saul’s notoriety to shed light on the next phase of human evolution.”
An official statement from Cronenberg teased more of what we can expect: “‘Crimes of the Future’ is a meditation on human evolution. Specifically – the ways in which we have had to take control of the process because we have created such powerful environments that did not exist previously. [The movie] is an evolution of things I have done before. Fans will see key references to other scenes and moments from my other films. That’s a continuity of my understanding of technology as connected to the human body. Technology is always an extension of the human body, even when it seems to be very mechanical and non-human…”
The film’s cast also includes Scott Speedman, Welket Bungué, Don McKellarLihi KornowskiTanaya Beatty, Nadia Litz, Yorgos Karamichos, and Yorgos Pirpassopoulos.
This is the first original sci-fi script by Cronenberg since 1999’s eXistenZ. Crimes of the Future reunites Cronenberg with Mortensen, star of more grounded crime thrillers A History of Violence and Eastern Promises.

It’s wild that the demonic nun known as Valak has become such a horror icon, starring in her own movie back in 2018 with a sequel on the way, because the character almost didn’t even make it into The Conjuring 2. As James Wan has noted in the past, Valak was actually a final hour replacement for a totally different demon. A demon we have new footage of this week.
Over on Instagram this afternoon, James Wan has shared some on-set video footage of the original demon for the very first time, calling it the best demon that he’s never used!
Wan explains, “The original VALAK in The Conjuring 2 was going to be this winged demon. A beautifully/hideously sculpted animatronic puppet head and practical body-suit by the super talented @justin.raleigh (whom I’ve worked with on pretty much all my movies since Insidious 1) and his team @fracturedfxinc, worn by @j_bishara.”
“I think I have only one fully finished shot with CGI wings in place. It was really grand and epic. But as cool as it was, it felt out of place within the Conjuring world we had built,” Wan continues. “And so during post production, I reconceived the villain — feeling it needed to be something more grounded, more personal, and creepier. And thus the demonic Nun was born.
“We cast the amazing @bonnieaarons1 for the role, and all the nun stuff was shot during additional photography, including coming up with new scare set-pieces like the “painting on the wall”, and used visual effects to put the new villain into existing scenes.”
Check out footage of the unused – and unnamed – The Conjuring 2 demon below!
