Today we have a full trailer for the upcoming "Under the Skin" sci-fi film, which is directed by Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast) and stars Scarlett Johansson as an alien. Check it out below.
In the movie, Johansson will scour remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snake human prey - her voracious sexuality. Her goal is to abduct hitchhikers and take them back to her home world, where human meat is considered a delicacy.
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.
"Under the Skin" recently played at the Telluride Film Festival. It has yet to be picked up for domestic distribution or get a release date.
I get the feeling of this vibe that if Species f*cked The Wrestler, you'd get this...

This has been on my must-see list for a long time now, ever since I first heard of the project. The reviews from the TFF were polarizing, garnering both cheers and jeers. Some hated it (some even walked out before it was over, as rumored) while others have praised it as a surrealist masterpiece.
One thing to note: Johansson has multiple full nude scenes in the film. Not the main draw for me, personally, but still a nice bonus.

I would like to think that any alien race capable of spanning the vast space between stars would have a more efficient means of capturing humans, like say a net.

Dying to see this just hope it hasn't deviated too much from the book. (the shot where she is driving through Glasgow city centre at the start isn't in the book as she never ventures that far south from the A9).
