If you need to be sold on 'Under the Skin', we probably don't need to do more than to mention Scarlett Johansson and the "graphic nudity" in the film's R-rating. But, if you must know more, we've got a trippy (and sexy), new trailer to share for the upcoming sci-fi thriller.
It's a bit complex, so we're not going to try and explain all of 'Under the Skin' ourselves. Instead, before we go further, let's catch up with the film's official synopsis:
From visionary director Jonathan Glazer comes a stunning career transformation, a masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial — or something in between. A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring this succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again. Based on the novel by Michel Faber ('The Crimson Petal and the White'), 'Under the Skin' examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.
So, Scarlett Johansson as a sexy alien who kills men with sex. Not a bad way to die.
The movie is a blast and while the trailer above seems very abstract, we'll just quote our review of the film from the Toronto Film Festival: "To enjoy the film, you just have to be willing to give yourself over to a slow and meditative state. (There’s plenty of Scarlett Johansson nude to coax you on your journey, so no need to fret too much.)"
The best of both worlds.
'Under the Skin' opens in select theaters on April 4 and nationwide on April 11.
