Drama Under the Skin is coming to the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival later this month, and a teaser released is for the movie.
Scarlett Johansson stars in the film as Laura, an alien in human form who has been sent to Earth with limited human language, but enough so that some can successfully seduce, capture and send home unsuspecting males. But her human body piques her interest, and a single act could threaten the success of her mission.
In search of loners, Laura (Scarlett Johansson) drives around the exquisitely moody landscapes of the Scottish highlands. She’s an alien, sent from afar and equipped with enough human language and awesome seductive power to capture, destroy and presumably send home human males.
Then, her curiosity about her human body and an accidental act of pity disrupt her mission. Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth) directs the film and co-wrote the script with cowriter Walter Campbell, based on Michael Faber’s novel. The film is making a festival run now, and doesn’t yet have a release date, so stay tuned for more.
