Check Out Kellerhouse's Minimalistic Set of 'Under the Skin' Posters
If you're not interested in this indie sci-fi original work of art, then these posters might make you a bit more curious. Or they may just make you wonder WTF is going on? With the release less than a month away, A24 Films has debuted a new piece of art for Jonathan Glazer's sci-fi mind-bender Under the Skin, showing Scarlett Johansson's legs—oh my!—and not much else. TotalFilm has also debuted a set of minimalistic posters designed by Neil Kellerhouse, the same artist/designer responsible for Fincher's outstanding Girl with the Dragon Tattoo promo art (via The Film Stage on that tip). This first one below, with her bare legs, is pretty much a Criterion cover waiting to happen. In fact, any/all of these are. Nice work A24/Kellerhouse.
This first one is the newly released artwork for Glazer's Under the Skin that @A24Films posted to Twitter. This art is NOT by Kellerhouse, it's by A24's in-house marketing. But it's still good art worth including here.
The rest of these posters below are from the TotalFilm post where you will see a few more by clicking any. All of these seen below are the posters designed by Neil Kellerhouse as an exclusive set of art for the film.
In search of loners, Laura (Scarlett Johansson) drives around the exquisitely moody landscapes of the Scottish highlands. She’s an alien, sent from afar and equipped with enough human language and awesome seductive power to capture, destroy and presumably send home human males. And then, her curiosity about her human body and an accidental act of pity disrupt her mission. Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth) directs the film and co-wrote the script with Walter Campbell, based on Michael Faber’s novel. Under the Skin was acquired by A24 Films from TIFF 2013, and will begin playing with a limited release on April 4th.

I agree these really do look like Criterion covers! Awesome posters. Always a fan of minimalist art.

Awesome. They also look like book covers, especially the first one. Very interesting as a film poster.
