The first full trailer for the forthcoming Scarlett Johansson film Under The Skin has just been released. Based on the cult novel of the same name by Dutch author Michel Faber, the story centres around a young human looking alien who travels the roads of Scotland picking up hitch hikers. She drugs and fattens her victims before handing them over to her companions who relish humans as a delicacy. Then it starts to get weird!
This is the only the third feature from director Jonathan Glazer. He memorably debuted with the crime drama Sexy Beast after a stellar career in directing innovative music videos. The Ray Winstone and Ben Kingsley starring film notified Glaser as a director of vision and skill and definitely one to watch out for His second feature, Birth, released in 2004 divided critics and the public alike.
The film will have its UK premiere as the closing film at this years Glasgow Film Festival on the 2nd of March. It will be in general release from the 14th of March.
