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. Basically, it’s a perfect film for a studio to buy and release on thousands of screens around the world.
And that’s exactly what Warner Bros. is going to do as they’ve set a June 4 release date. That means Splice is going up against Get Him to the Greek, Killers, Marmaduke and Ondine. While it’s a busy weekend, none of those films are even close to the genre of Splice. And the following weekend has The A-Team and The Karate Kid. Meaning, if you want sick and twisted, it’s Splice or nothing.
Expect a trailer to be released very soon. Splice is a film you should be excited to see. Hit the jump to check out the images we have in the server:
