Scarlett Johansson is an alien. A sexy alien? And this sexy alien needs sexy men to feed her alien... hunger? Honestly I have no idea. Please someone tell me what is happening in this movie.


Thanks to Hitfix, we now have another look at Jonathan Glazer's Under The Skin, which stars Scarjo and a lot of unknowns, based on the novel by Michael Faber. It's got a very art house, "oooh you don't know what's going on do you?" vibe. And that's cool, I just hope that Scarjo gets to Species some of these fellas she's trapping in her, um, alien web? She probably doesn't have an alien web, but wouldn't it be cool if she did?

Under the Skin will be released in Los Angeles and New York on April 4th.



I've spent over a decade waiting for this book to be turned into a movie, and now that it has, I don't know how to feel.

So, yeah, it's a book which is nastily satirical, and amongst other things takes on big business and big agriculture. The story is compressed down into ScarJo's character and (predominantly) one other, but it's actually much larger than that — her sexy alien schtick is just that, a schtick. It's a very grim and disturbing book. (I picked it up after reading Faber's The Crimson Petal & the White, expecting something similar. What a shock that was.)
