Official “UNDER THE SKIN” Trailer Boasts Stunning Visuals


There’s a sense that UNDER THE SKIN’s dreamy, abstract, heady nature could make for any amount of trailers and none of them would feel as if too much has been revealed. Now that the latest from Jonathan Glazer is approaching U.S. release, its official clip from A24 is out and despite being at least the third look at what’s surely this singular picture, it only grows in its ability to be enticing.

In UNDER THE SKIN, Scarlett Johansson plays a traveling being who’s assumed the likeness of a beautiful woman, and seduces and stalks man in the streets and towns of Scotland. Whatever the film is getting at—and I can’t wait to find out—it does so with arresting imagery of landscape, of psychedelic space, of Johansson. All signs, including our glowing review from TIFF and my nicknaming it “Classy Lifeforce”, point to this being something very special, indeed.

UNDER THE SKIN is out April 4, 2014.
