Beautiful New UK Under The Skin Poster
Update: here's the trailer to match!

11 February 2014  |  Written by Ali Plumb

Update: We now have the trailer to accompany the poster for Jonathan Glazer’s next feature, Under The Skin, which has been getting a lot of buzz of late because of its mysterious teaser trailers (see the bottom of the page) and out-there story. This is a film that sees Scarlett Johansson as an extra-terrestrial, after all. And to see her in an altogether different form, check out this stunning new poster and trailer. Warning: do not expect this to reveal a whole lot of plot.

Based on Michel Faber’s novel of the same name, as you can see this is 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.

Some "eye" based imagery and a Ms. Johansson that bears more than a passing resemblance to Sean Young. Interesting... Looks like fascinating movie by the way! More
