Scarlett Johansson sci-fi thriller “Under the Skin” has received its first official trailer, two months before its U.S. opening.
A24 acquired the rights in September, a day after its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival. The film, directed by Jonathan Glazer (“Sexy Beast”), stars Johansson as an alien seductress who seeks out hitchhikers.
“You don’t want to wake up, do you?” she intones near the end of the trailer.
Nick Wechsler and James Wilson are the producers on “Skin,” based on Michael Faber’s 2001 novel and adapted by Walter Campbell and Glazer. “Skin” also screened at Telluride and Venice.
A24 will launch “Under the Skin” in limited release on April 4, then expand in the following frame.
