A trailer and poster art for Brandon Cronenberg’s film, Antiviral have just been released. As reported earlier, the film will premiere this year at Toronto International Film Festival.


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.

Judging from the trailer, the film looks very much like George Lucas’ first film, Thx 1138—e.g., antiseptic, lots of whites, minimal set-decoration, formal compositions. The protagonist even works for a company called “The Lucas Clinic. »
