Splice gets the pick of this weekend's releases.

This has got to be one of our favorite lines so far this summer... "Human Cloning is illegal, this won't be human... not entirely.". Don't you just have to get out and see that movie? We do, and that's why Splice is one of our most looked forward to flicks of June. Splice opens today in U.S. wide release and stars Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley.
We just posted the Trailer Takes review over at and here's what we said...

A couple of scientists in a conference room making their case... "if we don't use human DNA now, someone else will." - in the world of summer movies, nothing good can come from this. That is, except a scary night in a dark movie theater.

The truth is that when we saw the first trailer for Splice it just struck us as low budget weird. Until the moment you go, "wait, is that Adrien Brody?" and then you pay closer attention, and then, we have to admit, you get a little sucked in. The second trailer that's been playing up to this week's release has us caught even tighter, feeling a bit like Sarah Polley, who should never have stuck her arm into that thing on the screen when she really wasn't exactly sure what was in there.

Thanks to the trailer you'll be going into the theater knowing exactly what's in there, but if you're like us, you'll be wondering what the hell they're going to do with it once it gets out. In movies like this the set-up need only be barely believable, so throw rational thinking to the wind and grab another handful of popcorn. It's summer after all and this is one of those perfect, late night, irrationally spontaneous "isn't there another showing of Splice somewhere tonight" kind of movies. So go ahead, tweet the friends list, meet at your favor movie theater, snack up on the way in, grab some seats and have a blast.

Here's the internet version of the trailer courtesy of our friends over at Trailer Addict.
