Today we've got two full trailers for Scarlett Johansson's seductive and eerie sci-fi thriller called Under The Skin. The movie was directed by Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth) and according to the review quotes in the trailer, the movie is supposed to be really freakin' good. They're comparing it to the work of Stanley Kubrick. It definitely looks like a movie that I want to see. I love the eerie, dark tone of the film.
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.
Under the Skin opens on April 4th in NY and LA before expanding nationwide the following week. Here are a domestic trailer and a UK trailer for you to check out.
