If your a fan of cinema and, more importantly, a fan of the art of cinema than you need to get excited about Jonathan Glazer’s “Under the Skin.”
Lucky enough to attend the first screening of “Skin” at the 2013 Telluride Film Festival, I described “Under the Skin” as “an original piece of cinema that is gorgeous, mesmerizing, heartbreaking, frustrating and pretentious all at the same time. It has some of the most haunting images of the year and features the bravest performance of Scarlett Johansson’s career.” The film stuck with me so much that it ended up making my year-end top 10 list at no. 2 ahead of films such as “Her” and “12 Years A Slave.” Yes, “Skin” is that special.
A24 Films was brave enough to pick up “Skin” for distribution in the United States and were kind enough to provide HitFix with what is essentially the first “teaser trailer” for the picture. Glazer cut this preview himself and it features a plethora of just some of the film’s incredible imagery in quick succession. You can check this preview itself embedded at the top of this post.
“Under the Skin” will open in Los Angeles and New York on April 4. It will expand to limited release on April 11.
