Scarlett Johansson is On the Hunt in First Teaser for 'Under the Skin'

A haunting scory accompanies dark imagery

Scarlett Johansson in Under the Skin

Jonathan Glazer's Under the Skin recently played the Venice and Telluride Film Festivals and I'll be catching it at the Toronto Film Festival in the coming days. While I've been told the reviews were a little mixed, the only ones I've seen were positive so I'm not searching for any negativity at this time and today a true teaser of a trailer for the film has arrived and runs all of 53 seconds, presenting little more than a haunting score atop some dark imagery.

I wrote a lot about the film only recently and if you want far deeper details you can read that here, but suffice to say, the film centers on a character played by Scarlett Johansson, described as a voracious alien seductress who scours remote highways and backroads of Scotland for human prey.

Check out the trailer below and stay tuned as I'll have a review very soon.

    Hollywood Reporter gave it a bad review.

    This looks like excessive style over substance. And there is quite a few mixed to negative reviews, so this project is losing steam in my opinion.

    This reminds of that new Outer Limits epsiode with Alyssa Milan a decade or so ago. The LA Times described the opening scene which has me very intrigued. This may another indie-out-of-the-blue-low-budget sucess like "Europa Report" last month.

    Looks bizarre and disjointed, but with just enough Scarlett Johansson flesh to keep me interested. I'm cautiously optimistic.

    wow, this looks really good. im a tad surprised something this bizzaro has come from an English director, i would expect it to have come from a Scandinavian or Italian.

    That looks... strange, to say the least.
