Scarlett-Johansson-in-Under-the-SkinDebuting at Telluride last week to solid early reviews, Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin is about to continue its tour of the festival circuit with a stop-off in Venice tomorrow, and then Toronto next week.

Scarlett Johansson is front and centre in the anticipated adaptation. And ahead of the film’s bow in Venice tomorrow, StudioCanal have released the first teaser footage, showing off a number of very intriguing clips.

Scarlett Johansson stars as a voracious alien seductress who scours remote highways and backroads for human prey, in this sci-fi thriller from director Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth).

Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth) is behind the camera, directing from a script he co-wrote with newcomer Walter Campbell. The two are adapting the acclaimed novel by Michel Faber, Under the Skin, shortlisted for the Whitbread Award, and Faber’s first full-length novel to be published.

Under the Skin is without a release date on either side of the Atlantic, and its reception in the coming days could well determine whether or not it receives an awards-qualifying release in the States before the year’s end. Here in the UK, StudioCanal already have the rights, and let’s hope they announce the release date soon. In the meantime, here’s the first footage to whet the appetite.
