Scarlett Johansson stars in Under the Skin

Jonathan Glazer returns to the big screen after nearly a decade away. His latest feature, Under the Skin, opens this Friday and stars Scarlett Johansson as a seductive otherworldly being who descends to earth in search of her male victims. The trailer gives us a glimpse into this surreal scifi. Glazer’s direction has been compared to Stanley Kubrick’s work primarily his groundbreaking film 2001: A Space Odyssey. The concentric form reminiscent of Hal, the austere white spaces, and reflective lighting are all iconic imagery that Kubrick owns. A24, the American distributor has created a series of mini sites that leads you down an abstract path beginning with t0uch-me. Under the Skin makes its New York premier tonight at BAM followed by a Q&A with Jonathan Glazer, unfortunately the event is sold out. The film opens in NY and LA on Friday and in selected cities on the 11th.
