David Cronenberg has said that he expects some audience members to walk out in the first five minutes of his latest feature when it premieres at Cannes.

Could "Crimes of the Future" mark Cronenberg's return to his glory days of "Crash"? 

Indeed. 

This baby looks like the kind of twisted movie that ignites Cannes overnight.
