At the same time as actress Scarlett Johansson's Captain America: The Winter Soldier hit theaters last weekend, her sci-fi indie thriller Under the Skin also debuted in limited release. The story centers on an alien (Scarlett Johansson) disguised as a seductive women who lures men to their death, roaming the countryside in search of new victims. Ahead of its nationwide expansion throughout the rest of this month, A24 Films has released a new featurette, where Scarlett Johansson reveals she has been discussing this project with director Jonathan Glazer for three years before it finally came together. Take a look at this featurette that includes new footage and interviews with both Scarlett Johansson and Jonathan Glazer.
From visionary director Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth) comes a stunning career transformation, a masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial - or something in between. A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring this succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again. Based on the novel by Michel Faber (The Crimson Petal and the White), Under the Skin examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.
