Although Scarlett Johansson made a splash with her critically-lauded voiceover role in Spike Jonze’s “Her,” her latest role definitely requires a physical presence.
In her forthcoming horror flick “Under the Skin,” the actress plays an alien “who lures men to a place between worlds, where they then drown in a pool of oily black goo,” according to Vulture.
The official trailer was released today, and though it’s slightly risqué, it gives a distinctive look at what is clearly a unique film.
In it, Johansson sports a fluffy brunette wig and – at times – not much else, as she seeks out potential prey is Glasgow, Scotland.
The film has already received terrific reviews based on screenings at various film festivals, currently holding an 89% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
“Under the Skin” will bow in limited release on April 4 before expanding the following week. What did you think of the movie’s eerie preview? Weigh in below!
