Another Awesome Official Poster for Vincenzo Natali's Splice
by Alex Billington

I'm really hoping that Vincenzo Natali's creature feature Splice becomes a sleeper hit this summer, but it may be a bit too crazy for some. That said, I'm excited as hell for this movie to hit theaters (in just over a few weeks!) and Warner Bros has been doing a great job marketing it (check out the trailer). A few weeks back we featured the first teaser poster and now IMPAwards has landed what looks to be the final official poster for Splice and it's pretty awesome. There's also a freaky French poster floating around that I didn't feature, but I really dig this new one. It's atmospheric and creepy and will totally help sell this. Check it out below!
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 Ent. Therefore, Warner Bros is bringing Splice to theaters, in wide release, starting on June 4th!
Aside from the obvious "Species knock-off" gripes this film is starting to get, I like the premise and think it looks promising...especially with Del Toro producing. I do think they are giving too much away showing the creature as much as they are. Kind of kills the beauty and suspense in the reveal if you ask me.

in this pic, she kinda reminds me of of Sithandra from Aeon flux...y'know the hands as feet thing.

There's also a freaky French poster floating around that I didn't feature.... That poster isn't French, it's Deutch.

My only problem with the poster is that the creature is not balanced correctly. It looks like she's going to fall over on them.

yep, the other poster is german, not french.

They gave away 70% of the intrigue, suspense, the reason people seek out the movie in the first place.....right there on the poster. What a downer.

@#4 Joel - Man, you really think an American will know the difference between French and Dutch? Splice looks good. More excited for Super 8 - but I will watch this. I'm a fiend of hot female monsters.

I agree with #1 (Marc ) & #7 (Zack ). @ #3 Alex Billington, what are you talking about - "There is plenty......" Have you seen the movie. Well I have, and I must say If I saw this poster before the movie it would have more than ruined part of the movie for me. That aside, I question "Del Toro's" contribution to the movie or just a name stamp to sell the movie. Since this movie comes to nothing more than at C+ at best, too predicable, plot holes, fast pacing.. must I go on. I don't mean to ruin the movie for anyone, I just stating the facts.

Think the movie looks really good but not the poster
Jim Shannon on May 19, 2010
Nope. This looks absolutely terrible to me. But no judgement, you all have fun spending upwards of $9 to see this.
