Scarlet Johansson plays an alien in this sci-fi erotic thriller called Under the Skin. She is sent to earth to seduce and abduct human males. Below, you'll find the first mesmerizingly psychedelic teaser trailer that is packed with a lot of dark clips. The film recently screened at the Venice Film Festival, and it seems to be getting solidly good reviews. Here's the synopsis:
In search of loners, Laura (Scarlett Johansson) drives around the exquisitely moody landscapes of the Scottish highlands. She’s an alien, sent from afar and equipped with enough human language and awesome seductive power to capture, destroy and presumably send home human males. And then, her curiosity about her human body and an accidental act of pity disrupt her mission: talk about lost in translation! Jonathan Glazer, known for his brilliant music videos and SEXY BEAST, and cowriter Walter Campbell adapt Michael Faber’s acclaimed novel to create a surprisingly layered tale. UNDER THE SKIN begins like an effectively creepy sci-fi horror film, but soon deepens into a lyrical evocation of solitude and estrangement and a mournful lament for ephemeral earthly beauty.The photography by Daniel Landin is richly atmospheric, and Mica Levi’s musical themes provide an ominous depth.
There's no U.S. distribution yet, but it will most likely be released sometime in 2014.
