Following yesterday’s artistic poster reveal, we have a new trailer for Jonathan Glazer’s latest film, Under the Skin. And boy is it artistic. So artistic in fact that, without the blurb, I would not have been able to tell you what the movie is about. In fact, I’m still not so sure.
The good news is that it looks like director Jonathan Glazer has crafted a very unique movie, and the better news is that it has Scarlett Johansson in lingerie! The bad news however, is that the trailer is jarring, off-kilter and might end up being too high-brow for its own good. Also, Scarlett Johansson plays a literal man-eater, so that’s less fun.
From visionary director Jonathan Glazer (SEXY BEAST, BIRTH) comes a stunning career transformation, a masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial — or something in between. A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring this succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again. Based on the novel by Michel Faber (The Crimson Petal and the White), UNDER THE SKIN examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.
Opening in the U.K. on March 14, Under the Skin stars pretty much just Scarlett Johansson and the aforementioned lingerie. And some other random dudes. But yay for lingerie!
