The upcoming film sees legendary director David Cronenberg return to body horror with a film about humans experimenting with their organs.

Wouldn't it be nice to live in a world without pain? Not according to legendary director David Cronenberg. The new trailer for the horror auteur's upcoming film Crimes of the Future shows humans living in a synthetic environment — and searching for new thrills.

As the human species adapts to its new surroundings, the body undergoes transformations — particularly the body of celebrity performance artist Saul Tenser (Viggo Mortensen). Saul is showcasing the metamorphosis of his organs; the new trailer begins with his partner Caprice (Léa Seydoux) declaring that she's found a "brand-new organ" in his body. The trailer shows us a glimpse of someone else who has had ears grafted onto their forehead. The possibilities are endless!

These actions have attracted the attention of National Organ Registry investigator Timlin (Kristen Stewart). Intrigued, Timlin tells Saul that "surgery is the new sex" in this world.
