Scarlett Johansson

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.

Scarlett Johansson in Under the Skin

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.

My gosh...this was a VERY disturbing novel, and I'm already creeped out by the film version and I haven't even seen it yet!  I can't believe they are filming this novel--this story is gonna weird out a lot more people; the novel is by Michel Faber, and Scarlett should be a cool alien (though in the novel it's not revealed till a bit later that she actually is an alien.  I guess they wanted to give it away early so they can market it as SF

At first glance, I thought that was Bran Stark

Yup. And at first glance I though Bran Stark was a clone of Camilla Belle.

She was filming in a place called Auchmithie beside Arbroath where i stay. I was there watching her being filimed comming out of the freezing North Sea, looked like she had a black body suite on with the white dots all over her so i guess it was for some type of Motion Capture. Seems the basis of the story is that she is some sort of Alien that wonders around shagging blokes then eats them is what i was told by one of the crew, just sounds like most women then :o)

Man-nnn..I'm tellin' you, THIS MOVIE ('Under The Skin') HAD BETTER be extrememly better than her current film (The Avengers Initiative).  I mean, REALLY...I'm getting a bad feeling about this film...I mean why can't she shelf this and work on something else?!? It's like eating caviar one day and a ham sandwich the next.  I'm so-ooo krazy 'bout you Scarlett but, hon, please, tell me there's an intricate reason for this.  Good Luck, Sweetie.

 The Avengers is a cartoon compared to this.Extremly well done cartoon mind you but still a cartoon. ...intricate about the reason she'll be carrying the movie compared to being essentially a sidekick to Hulk... Caviar is overrated anyway.

 I just love how condesending this post is. "hon" Jesus f***ing Christ.
