Directed by Vincenzo Natali (Cube)  and executive produced by Guillermo Del Toro, Splice is a science fiction thriller starring Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley.

The trailer is really cool and the buzz coming out of festival screenings has been very positive. I’m really looking forward to checking the film out when it’s released in the UK. Although the US release date is June 4th, apparently the film is getting a release in the UK on 28th April.

Clive and Elsa are young, brilliant and ambitious. The new animal species they engineered have made them rebel superstars of the scientific world. In secret, they introduce human DNA into the experiment. The result is something that is greater than the sum of its parts: a female animal-human hybrid that may be a step up on the evolutionary ladder. They think they may have created the perfect organism, until she makes a final shocking metamorphosis that could destroy them … and the rest of humanity.
