New Under The Skin Teaser Arrives
Take a trip with Jonathan Glazer's latest

Jonathan Glazer’s next feature, Under The Skin, has been bubbling under for a few months, spellbinding and occasionally mystifying festivalgoers from Toronto to Timbuktu. For the rest of us, its deepest secrets remain tantalisingly elusive. That's thanks in part to dialogue-free promos like this newbie, fresh in from the good people at Studiocanal. Click below for a closer look.

 
Based on Michel Faber’s novel of the same name, it’s a visual tour de force that won’t be some tastes but will knock the cotton socks off everyone else. As our man in Venice put it: “It’s a visually breathtaking piece of punk-art cinema that gives a lot of food for thought.”

Written by Glazer and Walter Campbell, and scored by Mica Levi of Micachu & The Shapes fame, Under The Skin follows Scarlett Johansson’s unnamed alien. She’s been sent to Earth by an alien corporation to prey on unwary hitchhikers. As the official synopsis puts it: “Part road movie, part science-fiction, part real, it’s a film about seeing our world through alien eyes.”

Already a critical triumph, Glazer’s feature-film return, nine years after Birth and 14 after Sexy Beast, will be with us on March 14.
