Check out a brilliant new trailer, along with a great new poster, for Under the Skin, a sci-fi thriller from writer-director Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth). Early reviews are raving about this movie, and it’s not hard to see why. The trailer suggests that this will be an original, eerie and surreal sci-fi film, with Scarlett Johannson in top form (in both senses of the word) as an alien seductress preying upon hitchhikers in Scotland. We seriously can’t wait to see this one. Under the trailer, you can check out the film’s synopsis and artistic poster.
Official synopsis for Under the Skin:
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.
