WB Sets Splice for Release

If the above image alone doesn't get you intrigued for the latest executive produced Guillermo del Toro film, then maybe your not as big of a SciFi-Horror fan as you thought. "Splice" is directed by Vincenzo Natali and was highly praised at this year's Sundance Film Festival. So much so, Warner Brothers have scooped up the distribution rights and are planning a June 4th release of the SciFi Horror. Take a look at a few more images from "Splice" after the break including a full synopsis for the feature film starring Adrien Brody...

Full synopsis:

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.

The best part of this news is that WB is planning a wide release and not just a limited one. Meaning SciFi and Horror fans around the U.S. will get a chance to see this touted film play out in theaters. Too many times films from Sundance are only given a very limited release, leaving the majority of the U.S. outside of Los Angeles and New York waiting for DVD or Blu-Ray. Not this time! Stay tuned for the trailer to "Splice" which should be releasing online shortly. I've also included the first poster for the playing god horror below.
