One of the best films I saw at this year’s Sundance Film festival was director Vincenzo Natali’s Splice. Starring Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley as genetic scientists that create a new life form with severe consequences, the film is original, dark, twisted, and it looks like a Hollywood produced film.   That’s probably why Joel Silver agreed to distribute Splice through his Dark Castle label (via Warner Bros.) and it’s getting released June 4th.  Trust me, the film is absolutely worth seeing.

Anyway, earlier today I did the press day for Splice and in the near future you can expect interviews with the cast and director Vincenzo Natali.  Until then…hit the jump to check out five clips from the film and 18 images.  I’ve also incvluded the full synopsis:

 

 

 

Superstar genetic engineers Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) specialize in splicing DNA from different animals to create incredible new hybrids. Now they want to use human DNA in a hybrid that could revolutionize science and medicine. But when the pharmaceutical company that funds their research forbids it, Clive and Elsa secretly take their boldest experimentation underground–risking their careers by pushing the boundaries of science to serve their own curiosity and ambition.

The result is Dren, an amazing, strangely beautiful creature of uncommon intelligence and an array of unexpected physical developments.

At first, Dren exceeds their wildest dreams. But as she grows and learns at an accelerated rate, her existence threatens to become their worst nightmare.

“Splice” stars Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody (“The Pianist,” “Hollywoodland,” “King Kong”); Sarah Polley (“Dawn of the Dead,” “The Secret Life of Words”), also a Best Screenplay Oscar® nominee for “Away From Her”; and newcomer Delphine Chaneac (“The Pink Panther”) in the role of the creature Dren.

“Splice” is directed by Vincenzo Natali (“Paris je t’aime,” “Cube”) from a screenplay by Natali & Antoinette Terry Bryant and Doug Taylor, story by Vincenzo Natali & Antoinette Terry Bryant. The film is produced by Steven Hoban and executive produced by Joel Silver and Sidonie Dumas. Also serving as executive producers are Guillermo del Toro, Susan Montford, Don Murphy, Christophe Riandee and Yves Chevalier.

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Tetsuo Nagata (Cesar Award winner for “La mome” and “La chambre des officiers”); editor Michele Conroy (Directors Guild of Canada Award winner for “Nothing”); production designer Todd Cherniawsky (art director, “Avatar”); and costume designer Alex Kavanagh (the “Saw” films). The music is by Cyrille Aufort.

Rated R by the MPAA for disturbing elements including strong sexuality, nudity, sci-fi violence and language.

All the clips are in the player below.  Once you push play you might have to watch some pre-roll and then all the clips will play in order.  Sorry about the pre-roll, it pays for the bandwidth.
