While she’s said to be featured heavily in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, there’s another Scarlett Johansson film also coming out April 4th that has attained our curiosity to a much greater extent. Jonathan Glazer‘s long-awaited Under the Skin will finally be making its debut next month and while the trailers have been quite cryptic today brings a new clip which gives us a better sense of the style.
In it, we can see our lead as an alien who is sent to seduce and abduct human males, and performing what she does best, interacting with one in his car before luring him into a dark alley.

Check out the clip and batch of posters below (via Total Film and Twitter).
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.

Under the Skin opens on April 4th in NY and LA before expanding on the following week.

I’m not sure I’d think much about diving into the work of Les Blank if only given a plot synopsis. His films, including a plethora now available in a stunningly thorough Criterion set, take on the esoteric sides of America, from bluegrass musicians to the wonders of polka to the taste of Creole cooking. These […]
