First official look at Scarlett Johansson in Under The Skin

Scarlett's beautiful alien is a real man-eater

Sexy Beast director Jonathan Glazer hasn’t released a feature since 2004’s Birth. But with his latest movie now in post-production, he’s hoping to get Under the Skin of viewers once more...

Above is our first official look at Scarlett Johansson, who stars as a man-eating alien disguised as a beautiful woman - a role that will give Natasha Henstridge a run for her money as cinema’s most desirable space invader.

"OK, yes I do play an alien who is wearing my own skin. But it's actually not a science-fiction film; it's sort of a film that asks existential questions and much more complex than the logline," said Johansson in a recent interview.

Sounds like Species by way of Sartre.

      This has potential as Scarlet Johansson is a fine actress, but it heavily depends on the writing here. It is hard to pull off sexy horror without it coming off as just plain sleazy. Hopefully the script calls for existential questioning as Johansson said. The worst thing that could happen is this movie being a Species clone with a pretentious streak. http://www.videodetective.com/movies/species/5760

      Amused by link (possibly) posted by FBJLea. Involves a woman in London called Kelly who is making nearly five grand a month 'without selling anything'. Sounds good, but the 'article' on the link describes how Kelly from London had been worried because she didn't know 'where her next dollar was coming from'. I would have thought living in a country where you get paid in dollars would be a good start. Regarding this movie, I really don't know what to think as I'd find it difficult to associate the terms 'sexy female alien' and 'existentialism' in the same sentence, outside of this comment.

      She is a consistently bad actress.

      Where is that guy who thinks SJ is a clone? He's been weirdly quiet throughout the avengers media frenzy. Maybe someone should go check to see if the lizard overlords got him?

      I don't think she is a bad actress at all, granted she is nothing special, but in Avengers she was pretty good. Its almost as if her attractiveness makes people need to say something bad about her.

      So basically it's Species minus the nudity ?

      Its nothing to do with attractiveness, she just has no emotional range.
