Scarlett Johansson stars in creepy new teaser for Under The Skin: watch now

Species meets David Lynch

 

The first teaser trailer has arrived online for Under The Skin, Jonathan Glazer’s sci-fi drama starring Scarlett Johansson as a distinctly sexy alien invader.

The premise of the film sets Johansson’s character up as a voracious predator, who uses her sexualised appearance to ensnare her prey.

If that all sounds a little Natasha Henstridge in Species, the first trailer suggests that this will be a different beast entirely, with a pronounced streak of surrealism very much at the fore.

Take a look at the new trailer, below…



Fairly unnerving stuff. We’re still not sure quite what to expect from this one, although it certainly seems a different proposal from what one might expect from the synopsis alone.

Directed by Glazer and co-starring Paul Brannigan and Joe Szula, Under The Skin is currently doing the festival rounds, with a UK release date to be confirmed.

What do you think of the new teaser? Tell us, below!

      Unnerving for sure. They shot parts of this movie in Glasgow.

      Under The Skin is a great book, came out a few years ago, unfortunately I can't recall the name of the author but I'd recommend to any fan of sci-fi horror! Hopefully the film will stick to the source as it's quite bleak and I love that sort of stuff.
