'Under The Skin' Teaser Trailer Features Scarlett Johansson As An Alien

Here's the simple plot description for "Under The Skin" on IMDb: "An alien in human form is on a journey through Scotland." Here's what that really entails: Scarlett Johansson plays the alien, and in a first glimpse of the film, she's seen interacting with array of David Lynchian nightmares. Directed by Jonathan Glazer, "Under the Skin" debuted at the Telluride Film Festival with some strong reviews. "Glazer, best known for his films 'Sexy Beast' and 'Birth,' has instead fashioned an original piece of cinema that is gorgeous, mesmerizing, heartbreaking, frustrating and pretentious all at the same time," wrote Gregory Ellwood for HitFix's In Contention awards blog. "It has some of the most haunting images of the year and features the bravest performance of Scarlett Johansson's career." Watch the teaser above; "Under the Skin" does not have U.S. distribution at this time.
