Watch: Strange 'Under the Skin' Teaser Trailer with Scarlett Johansson
Strange. Eerie. Mesmerizing. Brilliant? Maybe. A24 has debuted the first official teaser trailer for Jonathan Glazer's new sci-fi film Under the Skin, starring Scarlett Johansson as an alien who seduces men from Ireland. The film has been receiving rave reviews from critics who caught it at film festivals, but I wasn't a big fan. It's just too weird and too convoluted to be enjoyable in any way. That said, this is a brilliant teaser trailer for Under the Skin. At first you must stare into the black ooze, then it goes on a quick journey into the madness of the film. I'm very curious to hear what everyone makes of this teaser. Intrigued or confused?
Here's the very first official teaser trailer for Jonathan Glazer's Under the Skin, originally from HitFix:
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 co-writer Walter Campbell, based on Michael Faber’s novel. The film is screening on the film festival circuit now and was acquired by A24 Films during Toronto. They currently have Under the Skin set for limited release starting April 4th in spring. More to come. Curious?
