Toronto’s historic Elgin and Winter Garden theatre was a buzz last night for the Canadian premiere of the new science fiction thriller Splice. The film’s stars — Oscar-winner Adrien Brody, Sarah Polley, Delphine Chanéac — and writer-director Vincenzo Natali were all on hand to chat with the media and present the film in front of a packed house.
Splice explores a worst-case scenario involving genetic engineering. In it, research scientists Clive and Elsa (Brody and Polley) succeed in taking questionable judgement to new extremes. And creating a creature from a smorgasbord of DNA is only the start of it.
Adrien Brody loved exploring the scientific world for his role, but when it came to watching the movie with his mom — things got a little uncomfortable for when it came to his sex scenes.
Natali was thrilled to premiere the film in Toronto mainly because he shot most of the movie in the city.
