An alien seductress preys upon hitchhikers in Scotland.
This trailer for the upcoming Scarlett Johansson film Under the Skin from Sexy Beast director Jonathan Glazer really illustrated something for me: the importance of having directors and producers with artistic vision. Because let’s face it, folks: this is basically the same plot as Species. An alien disguised as a woman preys on hapless guys who think she’s totally hot. The fact that this two-minute trailer is more artfully crafted than the entirety of Species and its sequels says something. Anyway, I think this looks terrifying, and for once I don’t find myself attracted to Scarlett Johansson – that’s no small feat!
