A few months back a very short and very unrevealing teaser trailer was released for the upcoming sci-fi film Under the Skin. Today, the good people at A24 have released the first, and incredibly creepy, official full-length trailer for the film.
Under the Skin is based off of a novel by the same name from author Michel Faber.
In the film, an alien is sent to Earth in what is considered to be the “perfect female form.” From there, she sets out on the highway in search of lonely hitchhikers. Once she has them in her reach, she uses her femininity to seduce them before pulling them into this unknown and otherworldly realm where they are stripped of their humanity and never seen or heard from ever again.
The film is being directed by Jonathan Glazer. Glazer has made such films as Sexy Beast and Birth. Scarlett Johansson plays the lead in the film. Her name is Laura.
Here is a look at the first official trailer from the film Under the Skin.
I do have to say, though…I think most men will tell you that if they had to be abducted by an alien and stripped of their humanity, Scarlett Johansson would probably be their alien of choice.
Under the Skin is scheduled to be released in theaters on April 4, 2014.
