First Look: Scarlett Johansson as an Alien in Sci-Fi 'Under the Skin'
One more for ya to look at today. Although she kicks ass as Black Widow in The Avengers, actress Scarlett Johansson has plenty of other roles coming up, besides directing her own feature. One of her other films is Under the Skin, an indie sci-fi project directed by Jonathan Glazer, now in post in London. FilmNation, one of the producers, unveiled on twitter a first look at Scarlett Johansson as an alien on earth, disguised as the "perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman." Yea she looks a bit different, but still the same ole Scarlett you know and love, with a kind of Russian tinge, I'd say. Check out the odd in-car first look below.
Jonathan 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. Filming wrapped in London earlier this year, following extensive location shooting in Scotland. "She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey -- her voracious sexuality. She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind." This is likely an early tease for the Cannes Market as it's looking to be acquired.
