After a teaser and a trailer for ‘Under The Skin’, it honestly felt like we’d never hear of an actual release date for Scarlett Johansson’s (The Avengers‘, ‘Her‘) latest film. Finally, though, we’ve found out that the indie distribution company A24 has the distribution rights and will release the film in the U.S. on April 4th, 2014!
Wait, April 4th? Why does that sound familiar? Oh, that’s right, it’s the same date another one of her films is being releases that you may have heard of – ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘. While I’m pretty sure we all know which of Johansson’s films are going to perform better at the box office, anyone who has been following this film will probably still try to catch a showing of it, even if not on opening day. It looks to be one of the stranger science fiction films to be released in 2014 (if not all of the decade!) and let’s be honest, many of the men who see Johansson in her Black Widow costume are going to want to see her using her sexual appeal to get men to do what she wants. Of course, the fact that she’s an alien that is using the men for sustenance probably won’t cross their minds until it’s too late.
So while many of you will be seeing her in ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ on April 4th, who has plans to make a point to check out ‘Under the Skin’ as well?
“Johansson plays an alien on earth, disguised as the perfect aesthetic form of a mesmerizing woman. She scours remote highways and desolate scenery looking to use her greatest weapon to snare human prey — her voracious sexuality. She is deadly efficient, but over time becomes drawn to and changed by the complexity of life on earth. With this new found humanity and weakening alien resolve, she finds herself on a collision course with her own kind. Taking her point of view throughout, the film presents a unique look at our world through alien eyes.”
