A NSFW teaser trailer has gone online for Jonathan Glazer‘s sci-fi drama Under the Skin.  Johansson plays a sexy alien in the film, which centers on an extraterrestrial on Earth disguised as a gorgeous woman who uses her “voracious sexuality” to entrap human prey.  While that sounds a little like Species, the teaser trailer makes it clear that the surreal, alienating tone is much closer to The Man Who Fell to Earth.  I’m still not entirely sure what to expect from the movie, but I’m definitely making time for it when it comes to the Toronto International Film Festival.  It recently played at the Venice Film Festival and the Telluride Film Festival.

Hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer.

Via Bleeding Cool.

Here’s the Telluride synopsis:

Under The Skin“: In search of loners, Laura (Scarlett Johansson) drives around the exquisitely moody landscapes of the Scottish highlands. She’s an alien,sent from afar and equipped with enough human language and awesome seductive power to capture, destroy and presumably send home human males. And then, her curiosity about her human body and an accidental act of pity disrupt her mission: talk about lost in translation! Jonathan Glazer, known for his brilliant music videos and SEXY BEAST, and co-writer Walter Campbell adapt Michael Faber’s acclaimed novel to create a surprisingly layered tale. UNDER THE SKIN begins like an effectively creepy sci-fi horror film, but soon deepens into a lyrical evocation of solitude and estrangement and a mournful lament for ephemeral earthly beauty.The photography by Daniel Landin is richly atmospheric, and Peter Raeburn’s musical themes provide an ominous depth. –LG (U.K., 2013, 107m)
