We've got a new teaser trailer for Scarlett Johansson's sci-fi alien thriller Under the Skin, in which she plays an alien who is sent to seduce and abduct human men. It's a mesmerizing trailer that leaves a lot to the imagination. It comes from director Jonathan Glazer, and it sure looks like it's going to be a strange film.
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.
The movie will be released in theaters on April 4th. Thanks to HitFix for the trailer.
