Must Watch: First Official Trailer for Vincenzo Natali's Splice!
What was that? A mistake. Warner Bros has debuted the first official trailer for Vincenzo Natali's Splice starring Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley. This was one of my favorite films from Sundance this year and I'm excited to see it again. From the guy behind Cube comes this latest twisted dark thriller about a couple who creates a genetic organism that starts growing up like a human girl. It's creepy and it goes places you never thought anyone's sick, twisted mind could go, but for that exact reason it's a fantastic film (read Brandon's great review). I was worried that they would show too much, but this is the perfect amount. Watch below!
Watch the first official trailer for Vincenzo Natali's Splice:
Elsa and Clive, 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 dangerous new organism.
Splice is both written and directed by filmmaker Vincenzo Natali, of cult sci-fi hit Cube as well as Cypher. The screenplay was also co-written by two newcomers Antoinette Terry Bryant and Doug Taylor as well as Natali. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year and was bought by Joel Silver's Dark Castle Entertainment. Therefore, Warner Bros is bringing Splice to theaters, in wide release, starting on June 4th this summer. I had a feeling this would turn out to be a hit and it definitely looks like it will be!

Sean Kelly on Apr 3, 2010
I really wanted to see this trailer but for some reason couldn't get it. I'll again later.
arjones on Apr 3, 2010
If you pause the trailer in the right places you can get a good look at the cloned rat girl thing. Creepy. This movie looks epic.
dove89 on Apr 3, 2010
Dark Castle is really producing some cool shit. Respect.
Lincoln on Apr 3, 2010
that clined rat woman is hot like me i will do her
freak on Apr 3, 2010
I saw this at Sundance....and it is so amazing. My recommendations is to never watch this trailer again and don't see or read anything about it. Go in as cold as you can because it is a crazy ride.
StevenA. on Apr 3, 2010
shes not a rat girl she is a eagle girl lol that's what they say in the trailer if you listen

Alex, I browsed to your site hoping to enjoy the latest and greatest trailers with my shiny iPad, only to find you're still using flash. Get with the program and get this puppy embedded with HTML5, stat. I'll be by to check on this later... Your pal, Steve

"I browsed to your site hoping to enjoy the latest and greatest trailers with my shiny iPad, only to find you're still using flash. Get with the program and get this puppy embedded with HTML5, stat. I'll be by to check on this later…" How about Apple gets with the program and uses Flash like the rest of the friggin' world? Back on topic: Didn't hear much before this trailer. Looks better than that goddamn RE4 trailer.

Cant wait for this flick! Looks damn epic to me. Brody is shocking me at how versatile he is! "on june 4th, a new breed of evil is BORN!"
CRaZY Olyphant on Apr 4, 2010
Alex, you said that the trailer didn't show too much, and that it did not prepare you for what went on in the film. that's good to know, as the trailer seems to develop an interesting, worth viewing but nevertheless traditional story arc. colour me intrigued, especially about the directions they could go, and not having seen it at a fest (unlike #15 / el wray). it would be *great* if they went in interesting directions that the audience genuinely wasn't expecting, as Jacob's Ladder or Being John Malkovich did. or it could go the obvious route and be one of those one-watch creature films - like Species. but i always enjoy watching Brody, so let's hope he's better in this than the phoned-in Kingsley and Whitaker we got in that mess.
