UPDATED: Splice - Cool photos of Dren are out

Bloody Disgusting have these photos of Splice. The new film by Vincenzo Natali. I posted other photos a while back.
It stars Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley as scientists who create a new life form called Dren (Delphine Chanéac). Think Dren can feel the love from them above.

UPDATE: Executive produced by Guillermo del Toro, the film tells of Elsa and Clive, two young rebellious scientists who 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.
Sounds a bit like Frankenstein with a hint of Species but an awful lot of First Born - that old TV show with Charles Dance who plays a scientist who spliced together human and animal DNA (Gorilla to be precise) to create a new organism. This time the kid was called Gor. You can guess how that turned out.
I still think Dren looks like Herr Starr from the Preacher comics with that weird scar she's got.
