Scarlett Johansson Stands Out In Under The Skin Teaser
Jonathan Glazer's latest will mess with your head

Jonathan Glazer is the man who brought the world Sexy Beast, the surfing horses Guinness advert and music video for Thom Yorke and UNKLE's 'Rabbit In Your Headlights'. He's also the man currently in Venice showing his new film, Under The Skin, and in celebration of that fact, here is a teaser clip where you can see Scarlett Johansson doing something slightly different to her work in, say, The Avengers.

 

Based on the sci-fi of the same name by Michel Faber, it sees Johansson as a human-like alien sent to earth to prey on hitchhikers in Scotland. Her job is to take them back to other aliens so that they can be fattened up and feasted upon, though in the film version it may not be as simple as that. It is not, it's safe to say, the feel-good hit of the autumn. In fact, you're best off filing this one under 'Darkly Satirical' and not confusing it with this film of the same name.

With our very own Damon Wise currently at the Venice Film Festival, you can expect a first reaction review to Under The Skin in the near future, but if you'd like to watch it yourself, you'll have to wait until its official UK release next year (the date of which will only be announced after its trips to Venice and Toronto).
