Brandon Cronenberg is following his father’s footsteps with his first film, Antiviral. IFC has already acquired the film for US distribution and it will be playing next month at the Toronto International Film Festival. A new international trailer has been released and we have it for you to watch:
“Antiviral follows Syd March, 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 collectors and rabid fans. He must unravel the mystery surrounding her death before he suffers the same fate.”
Antiviral stars Caleb Landry Jones, Sarah Gadon, Douglas Smith, and Malcolm McDowell.
