05.24.10 by BrentJS
Vincenzo Natali's latest movie, Splice, has spawned a new set of promotional materials. In addition to a new poster that shows the adult hybrid creature Dren (Delphine Chaneac), Collider has posted more than a dozen new stills from the movie and set images. Additionally, the first official synopsis for this modern-day Frankenstein story — the movie even includes the classic "it's alive" line, though without that maniacal cackle — has also been released.
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.
Five suspenseful clips from the movie have also been released, which you can watch back-to-back below.
