Warner Bros. has just released the teaser poster for the upcoming sci-fi horror film Splice. Directed by Vincenzo Natali and starring Sarah Polley and Adrien Brody, Steve really dug the film when he saw at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. However, we also learned that this cut won’t be exactly the same as the one shown at Sundance, but in essence, it’ll be the same film.
For those who don’t know, the film is about two genetic researchers who take scientific matters into their own. The result of their experiment is a strangely beautiful but also deadly and nightmarish creature. Hit the jump to check out the poster along with the official synopsis. Splice hits theaters on June 4th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Splice:
Elsa (Sarah Polley) and Clive (Adrien Brody), two young rebellious scientists, defy legal and ethical boundaries and forge ahead with a dangerous experiment: splicing together human and animal DNA to create a new organism. Named “Dren”, the creature rapidly develops from a deformed female infant into a beautiful but dangerous winged human-chimera, who forges a bond with both of her creators – only to have that bond turn deadly.
