We’ve got two great scores for you to check out in full this week. One is a score you’ve probably been excited to hear: Clint Mansell‘s Noah score, marking one more collaboration between the composer and director Darren Aronofsky. The other is Mica Levi‘s great and at times unearthly score for Under the Skin, the Jonathan Glazer film starring Scarlett Johansson. They’re very different pieces, with Mansell’s score going appropriately big at times, but also more complimentary in the end than you might expect. Read More »
The arrival of the gorgeous Neil Kellerhouse-designed poster (above) for Jonathan Glazer‘s film Under the Skin heralded the arrival of a new trailer, which you can now see below. In fact there are two new trailers, a US edit, and a UK version, for the film in which Scarlett Johansson plays an alien who has taken human form in order to hunt her prey: men.
We’ve covered the film for ages, and it is finally about to see release in the US. These trailers are just as seductive as the other footage we’ve seen from the film — this isn’t a big effects-filled piece of sci-fi, but something a little more strange and possibly unique. Read More »

Nine years after Birth, Jonathan Glazer returned to the festival circuit last year with Under the Skin. The film features an intriguing hook — Scarlett Johansson plays a sexy alien who seduces men and then destroys them — and the results look even stranger and less commercial than that description suggests.
The latest trailer does a great job of conveying a creepy tone, even as it turns out to be less revealing than the promos that came before. But that’s how Glazer wants it, apparently. He cut the new preview himself. Check it out after the jump.

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.
Check out the full trailer below. Read More »
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 »

Scarlett Johansson had a quiet couple of years, with only Iron Man 2 and We Bought a Zoo hitting theaters in 2010 and 2011, respectively. But her profile is back up in the stratosphere thanks to The Avengers, and now a couple other productions she’s involved in are taking advangate of the attention lavished on Marvel’s big hit.
