An extended trailer for director Jonathan Glazer’s (Sexy Beast) new film Under the Skin has arrived, and it’s decidedly moody. Scarlett 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. The pic premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival to divisive reviews (read Matt’s mixed take here), but this trailer drives home the point that Glazer has crafted a considerably odd feature that makes extensive use of striking imagery and a fittingly alien-like score. Glazer shot a lot of the film using non-professional actors who didn’t know they were being filmed, and we definitely see some of that in this extended look at the pic.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Under the Skin was acquired for distribution by A24 Films and will likely be released sometime next year.
