Under the Skin had me at “Scarlett Johansson cruising the Scottish Highlands picking up hitch-hikers.” I think there was some more there, but I pretty much just blanked out and went to my happy place. What’s it all about?
The movie is based on Michel Faber‘s book of the same name. Director Jonathan Glazer (Birth, Sexy Beast) has released the first full trailer for Under the Skin, and it’s full of eerie, other worldly type panning shots that help the viewer get into the concept that Johansson’s character Isserley isn’t right, and hints at the unspeakable things she does to her new friends.
Johansson’s name might be the thing that draws viewers in, but Glazer’s unique style of cinematography will be the thing that gets folks talking.
