Cronenberg returns to Cannes with the Crimes of the Future teaser!

David Cronenberg’s been keeping busy with his latest, Crimes of the Future. It looks like Existenz, but with major upgrades. The film stars Academy Award Nominee Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises, A History of Violence), Léa Seydoux (No Time to Die), and Academy Award Nominee Kristen Stewart (Spencer). I can’t begin to understand what the plot’s about, but given it’s Cronenberg, we’re all in.

Crimes of the Future will compete in this years Cannes Film Festival for the coveted Palm d’Or.

Music Video of the Day: (We Want) The Same Thing by Belinda Carlisle (1990, directed by ????)

It’s not quite Heaven Is A Place On Earth but (We Want) The Same Thing did very well for Belinda Carlisle in Europe, where it was enough of a hit to reach the 6th spot on the UK charts.  This was the 6th and final single to be released from Carlisle’s 3rd album, Runaway Horses.  The video alternates between Belinda in love and Belinda performing.

A little bit of Belinda Carlisle trivia: Belinda is the daughter-in-law of the late actor, James Mason.  She married Morgan Mason in 1986.  Before Mason married Belinda, he worked on Ronald Reagan’s first presidential campaign and held a post in the State Department until 1982.  Mason went on to become a film producer.  He and Belinda currently live in Bangkok.
