David Cronenberg expects walkouts during Cannes premiere of Crimes of the Future

The Fly director returns to the French film festival later this month with his latest sci-fi body horror starring Viggo Mortensen as a performance artist working in the field of surgery as art. The film also stars Léa Seydoux and Kristen Stewart, who says in the latest trailer, "Surgery is the new sex". In an interview with Deadline, Cronenberg was asked how graphic the film is and he admitted there are "some very strong scenes" which may cause walkouts. "I'm sure that we will have walkouts within the first five minutes of the movie. I'm sure of that."
