Jonathan Glazer‘s heady sci-fi film Under the Skin finally hit festivals in the past month, and made quite an impression thanks to the fact that Scarlett Johansson plays an alien with a less than healthy interest in human men.
Some of the films unusual tone comes from the fact that Glazer shot on real streets without telling people they were being filmed; some of the men Johansson interacts with didn’t know they were in the movie until afterward. Maybe you got a sense of the film’s strange character in the first teaser that hit not long ago, but you can get a better look now.

We’ve waited years to see Under the Skin, the newest film from Birth and Sexy Beast director Jonathan Glazer. Scarlett Johansson joined the project in 2010; she plays an alien who seduces her way to meals, with humans as her new primary food source.
The first image of Johansson in the film arrived in May of last year, and the movie is finally hitting the festival circuit. You can see a trippy and somewhat NSFW teaser below. Read More »
Hey Austin, Texas and Los Angeles, California! We’ve got tickets for you to see one of the year’s smartest, funniest films for free next week.
That film is Don Jon, written, directed and starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Co-starring Scarlett Johansson, Tony Danza, Julianne Moore and Brie Larson, Don Jon follows a young ladies man from Jersey (Gordon-Levitt) with one major problem in life: he’s totally addicted to Internet porn. The vice dominates all aspects of his life.
While that might sound like an unusual focus for a film, Gordon-Levitt handles the topic with grace and levity, turning the awkwardness into a commentary on media consumption in pop culture. As good as he is as an actor, Gordon-Levitt might even be a better writer and director.
We’re co-sponsoring free screenings in both Austin and LA on August 27 so, if you are interested, find all the information below. Read More »
Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s debut as a feature writer/director is Don Jon, in which he also stars as a Jersey guy who has a little problem with internet porn. In fact, the problem is pretty significant, as it completely infects his attempts to have something like a normal relationship with a woman who isn’t caught within his laptop screen.
This short new trailer sets up a small version of the story that focuses on the character’s attempt to have a relationship with a high-maintenance girl played by Scarlett Johansson. Check it out below. Read More »
When I spoke to Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo at Comic Con, the brothers talked about their approach to creating fight scenes for the film, and how it differs from what we saw in the first movie.
In short, the two have envisioned Cap as a killer close-quarters fighter, and they’re capturing action with a hand-held camera but with the intent to depict physical space in a more coherent way than many modern films influenced by the Bourne movies. There was a good illustration of that fight style when footage was shown at Comic Con that depicted Cap taking out a half-dozen guys in an office elevator.
That footage was shown again at D23, but a new extended clip was also revealed. This one further bolstered the image of Cap as a deadly black ops fighter. We can’t show you the clip, but you can get a full description of it below. Read More »
There have been short films and music videos, but it has been four years since Spike Jonze‘s last feature film, Where the Wild Things Are. Now the director is back with his fourth feature, Her, which features Joaquin Phoenix as a guy who falls for a piece of software. Since the software in question is voiced by Scarlett Johansson maybe that’s not much of a surprise. Check out the first trailer below. Read More »

Marvel Studios just unveiled the first footage from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and it looked unlike anything else the company has released. We’ve heard that the film, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, would be something like a thriller, but this footage really showed off a movie that deeply integrates current interests and fears about how we’re managing national security. In short, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is from a time where political morality seemed pretty black and white, and is now dealing with a modern world in which everything is drawn in shades of grey.
The Russos and Evans were joined on stage by Scarlett Johansson, whose Black Widow plays a very big role in the film, as well as Samuel L. Jackson, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Emily Van Camp, Maria Hill, and Sebastian Stan, who plays the Winter Soldier of the title.
We’ll give you some panel highlights and run down the footage after the break. Read More »
