Hooray the new full trailer is up!

The book is excellent, I highly recommend it.
It's not going to be for everyone I know, but praise is certainly due for Jonathan Glazer even attempting to bring Under The Skin to the big screen.
He seems to have nailed the aloofness of Michel Faber's surreal dream-like text.
And serious praise is due also for Scarlett Johansson for tackling the role of Isserley.
Very brave indeed.
Let's just say it ain't your average role...

Trailer looks good, I have to say I wasn't quite sure how it was going to work when I heard they were making it.

Love the book, don't think a month goes by without me thinking vodsel when I walk down the street....

Ha ha!
I know what you mean about Vodsels.
The black tar pits in the trailer look fantastic.
Exactly what I imagined when reading the book.
Jonathan Glazer was entirely the right director / mind for the job in my opinion.
Remember the aesthetic and feel of the demonic rabbit in Sexy Beast?
I think there's been a few changes, such as the club scene prevalent in the trailer.
But hey, artistically it looks bang on the money.
So far so good.
Ultimately it's the layers of the original story that are the real star.
I'm so curious to see if Amlis Vess has been kept in.
That's a serious undertaking...
