I am so excited to see Jonathan Glazer’s head trip sci-fi thriller, Under the Skin, for two reasons. Firstly it has the gorgeous Scarlett Johansson playing a seductive, predatory alien woman, and secondly, well it just so damn weird I can’t see how this can be anything less than genius!
The reviews from critics have all been praising the film, and their encouraging words can be seen throughout the unsettling trailer below. Watch it, then watch it again, and try and control your excitement for seeing this. Bring it bloody on I say!
StudioCanal have announced that UNDER THE SKIN, starring Scarlett Johansson and directed by Jonathan Glazer, will open across the UK on 14th March 2014.
Glazer’s third film following Sexy Beast and Birth, UNDER THE SKIN is the story of an alien in human form. Part road movie, part science fiction, part real, it’s a film about seeing our world through alien eyes.
Critically acclaimed at the Venice, Toronto and London film festivals, with special praise going to Mica Levi’s score,UNDER THE SKIN was shot in London and extensively on location in Scotland.
Glazer and Walter Campbell wrote the screenplay whilst the film is produced by James Wilson (JW Films) and Nick Wechsler (Nick Wechsler Productions). The film is based on a novel by Michel Faber.
UNDER THE SKIN is a Film4 and BFI presentation, in association with Silver Reel, Creative Scotland and FilmNation Entertainment.
