Just like that, there were a bounty of items from Antiviral. The debut of writer-director Brandon Cronenberg only played at Cannes a few months back, and a pending release from Alliance Films have brought our first trailer and clip, along with some viral marketing and a poster. (The clip is actually from June, but we missed it. Now it’s here.)
They’re intriguing little looks at the project, which has been earning plenty of comparisons to a certain other director up to this point; the preview, if not the portion, makes this all the more evident. Good as it may be, our review from Cannes was none-too-complimentary, with us complaining about a lack of singular focus and the vibe of “an amateurish, high-budget student film.” It’s all the more disappointing when you look at these materials, which boast both an intriguing concept and some nice imagery; here’s hoping I can get some more out of Antiviral.
You can see the clip here:

And, finally, there’s a poster:
Starring Caleb Landry Jones, Sarah Gadon, and Malcolm McDowell, Antiviral will open later this year.
Are you impressed with the first looks at Antiviral?
