David Cronenberg's son, Brandon Cronenberg has released the first trailer for his movie Antiviral, a movie that emulates everything his father ever seemingly projected in front of audiences. Antiviral does not yet have a U.S. release date but Yahoo! Canada has revealed a trailer. After becoming infected with the virus that killed superstar Hannah Geist, Syd March [Caleb Landry] must unravel the mystery surrounding her death to save his own life. Sarah Gadon co-stars with Malcolm McDowell. Hit the jump for the details.
Synopsis: "The sci-fi film follows Syd March (Caleb Landry Jones X-Men: First Class), an employee of an unusual company that sells celebrity diseases to deranged fans. By becoming infected with the same viruses that have afflicted their favourite stars, these disturbed celebrity devotees hope to get a little closer to their famous idols. But when Syd is infected by a disease that took the life of a young starlet (played by frequent David Cronenberg collaborator Sarah Gadon), he suddenly finds that he has become a twisted collector's item."
