Indiscernible UNDER THE SKIN Trailer Starring Scarlett Johansson Revealed

Anytime there’s a new Scarlett Johansson film, my interest is piqued. While she’s been busy with Marvel – Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier – she’s apparently been busy on this indie flick Under The Skin as well.

The newest film from Birth and Sexy Beast director Jonathan Glazer, the plot certainly sounds interesting. Scarlett Johansson seems perfectly cast as the ideal woman and it’ll be interesting to see the layers she’s able to bring to this alien character.

Under the Skin

Under The Skin synopsis:

Johansson plays an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. 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. Taking her point of view throughout, the film presents a unique look at our world through alien eyes.

The Guardian has the high-resolution teaser, but the embed below (via The Playlist) is slightly lower-res. The teaser is pretty inscrutable – just flashes of images and snippets that do not paint a picture of the film as a whole. Watch here:

The teaser is barely enough to even hint at the storyline, but it’s interesting enough to keep me intrigued. It’s playing the film festival circuit for now and doesn’t have an official release date.
