After a presence at the latest Toronto International Film Festival, Splice, a Canadian science-fiction film directed by Vincenzo Natali (Cube), will hit Canadian and U.S. theatres on June 4, 2010.
While Splice will be distributed in Canada by E1 Entertainment, it will be distributed in the USA by none other than Warner Bros.
The story - which was penned by Vincenzo Natali, Antoinette Terry Bryant and Doug Taylor - follows Elsa (Sarah Polley) and Clive (Adrien Brody), two scientists who wish to conduct an experience bordering on human cloning (something that is illegal). Therefore, they splice together human and animal DNA in order to create a new organism. As a result of that, a creature called Dren is born. This creature came to life as a deformed female infant (Abigail Chu) and it will age quickly to the point of becoming a beautiful but dangerous winged human-chimera (Delphine Chanéac).
Finally, to those who saw the film in film festivals, how did you find it? Feel free to share your thoughts.
