The film “Under The Skin”, starring Scarlett Johansson, was released in English theaters on March 14, 2014. It was released in the United States in April of the same year and on August 10 worldwide.
Its director, Jonathan Glazer, hit it off with the name, because the movie definitely gets under the skin of whoever is watching it. His scenes, nightmare after nightmare, are delivered like hard pills to swallow. The strip, it should be noted, presents Scarlett at her most wicked side.
The studio behind this film, A24, is known to dabble in non-commercial film projects, so it’s no wonder they threw themselves into this package.
What is it about?
The premise of the film is that of a beautiful woman with bulging lips and dark hair who is dedicated to seducing any man who crosses her path until leading them to an unfortunate destination, but no one imagines that she is actually a malevolent alien. .
To celebrate this new anniversary of “Under The Skin”, we will discuss some interesting facts that revolve around this terrifying production.
Johansson’s character lured various men into a van which drove much of the plot. These, it should be noted, were not performed by professional actors.
According to IMDB, the filmmaker managed to get hidden cameras inside the vehicle to record the scenes without letting the ignorant men know they were in a movie. It wasn’t until after filming that they were told they would be part of a movie.
several years of development
“Under The Skin” took 10 years to complete, one of the first drafts of the script featured a married couple who end up being aliens in disguise. Brad Pitt was going to be part of the project when it was the premise of the story, trade media reported.
a great performance
Have you ever thought that Scarlett Johansson might give you goosebumps? Well, in this film, she totally achieves that, playing a terrifying villain with no redeeming abilities whatsoever.
The star revealed to The Hollywood Reporter in September 2013 that she felt physically handicapped while filming. “Those scenes in the woods were very physically demanding but I think I do my best to be present in my head during filming,” she said. On the other hand, she said that the difficulties only added to the project, as they contributed to the atmosphere of the images.
The specialized press welcomed this dramatic horror wonderfully and their impressions are proof of it. “This amazing film will leave you terrified and thrilled from the first try,” reported The Telegraph. “An eerie, erotic and disconcerting rendition, very different from anything Johansson has done before,” Indiewire said.
For its part, The Playlist described the proposal as something “unique” and “extraordinary” to see in theaters.
her first nude
The protagonist of “Black Widow” stripped completely naked for this film, it was the first film project in which she did it and spoke about it at a press conference.
“I think in a way you have to look at nudity and assume it’s going to be a screenshot for someone, and you have to weigh the value of the risk you’re taking. You know, ‘Is it free?’, ‘A vanity project?’ “Will this be an important part of this character’s journey of self-discovery?” ‘What is the benefit?’
Eventually, the actress decided it was the right thing for the character and worth the risk. “I am not a provocative person. It’s not like she lives to be photographed with no clothes on or anything like that,” she added.
