Scarlett Johansson as Alien Seductress in Jonathan Glazer's Under the Skin Trailer

by Maggie Dolan

In Jonathan Glazer's new sci-fi drama, Under the Skin, Scarlett Johansson plays an alien seductress preying on hitchhikers in the Scottish Highlands. The film's new trailer, set to an ambient wind soundtrack, is exceptionally eerie -- expect more of a Lynchian experience then Ridley Scott. It's been nine years since the English director, who is known for his commercial and music video work, released his last film, Birth, staring Nicole Kidman, and 13 years since his celebrated debut, Sexy Beast. The film, which is loosely based on Michel Faber's novel of the same name, hit Venice Film Festival today with polarizing reviews discussing lack of plot or its silent entrancement. It's agreed, however, that ScarJo makes for the perfect extraterrestrial temptress. If aliens turn out to be this hot, we're all screwed. This trailer is terrifying enough.
