Review: Glazer's 'Under the Skin' Undoubtedly Gets Under Our Skin

34 minutes ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Visually haunting and lyrical in style, Jonathan Glazer’s adaptation of the novel Under the Skin is the kind of profound sci-fi brain-stopper that will be sure to draw comparisons to some of the greats. We’re talking Kubrick and Roeg comparisons. History will tell if Under the Skin attains any part of that level of legacy, but it’s undeniable the film achieves success in the images it displays before our eyes and the emotions they beckon from the audience’s soul. Always at an arm’s length of understanding its grand design, the film relies on aesthetic and a gripping performance from Scarlett Johansson to hold the viewer’s attention. All things considered, that's not a bad combination of benefits to choose from. Read on! Johansson plays, we are to assume, a member of a strange, alien race who travels to our planet to pick up hitchhikers. That »

‘Under the Skin’ Review

48 minutes ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

In Under the SkinScarlett Johansson (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) plays a mysterious extraterrestrial stalking prey (read: men) along the West Coast of Scotland. After assuming the appearance of one particularly unfortunate Scottish dame, Johansson’s unnamed alien prowls the streets in a nondescript cargo van, pretending to need directions in an effort to seek out unsuspecting (and lustful) loners willing to throw caution to the wind and accept a ride from the black-haired beauty.

Overseen by a male attendant (played by former Irish motorcycle racer Jeremy McWilliams), Johansson’s character is completely oblivious to the dangers and horrors of the world, a singularly focused siren, pursuing one male victim after the next, leading each to a horrifying end inside her slaughterhouse. Until an unusual encounter causes the uncaring predator ...

Under The Skin – The Review

1 hour ago | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

So this weekend we’ve seen Jude Law take a walk on the wild side in the title role of Dom Hemingway. Now, we also get a new film starring a stateside screen beauty, Scarlett Johansson as she takes a walk on the weird side. Very weird. She stars in almost every minute of  Under The Skin from director Jonathon Glazer who gave us the enormously entertaining Sexy Beast (Ben Kingley’s character might have been “mates” with Dom!). But Skin is no look at the cockney criminal class. This film is based on a 2000 science fiction novel from Michel Faber. Now we’re used to seeing Ms. J dashing about in CG backdrops in big budget blockbusters like Michael Bay’s The Island  and over at Marvel Studios as the sublime Shield agent the Black Widow in, so far, three epics. But this film’s not in the same »

‘Under the Skin’ a terrifying, beautiful, and utterly disturbing return from Jonathan Glazer

12 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Under the Skin

Written by Walter Campbell and Jonathan Glazer

Directed by Jonathan Glazer

UK and USA, 2013

A profound sense of unease permeates and accompanies Under the Skin, Jonathan Glazer’s first film in nearly 10 years. Glazer’s debut feature, the excellent British gangster picture Sexy Beast, married vicious and profane dialogue with a penchant for nightmarish imagery; his follow-up, the austere and stately Birth, was a quieter piece that relied heavily on the porcelain-doll qualities of his leading lady, Nicole Kidman. Each of his three films, Under the Skin included, have a knack for presenting the ostensibly normal as something indescribably frightening, whether it’s the sunbaked backyard of an ex-thief or a middle-aged man’s daily jog through Central Prak or the simple act of driving a van through a rainy city. More than his previous features, though, Glazer leaves behind the vagaries of plot and exposition-as-dialogue in Under the Skin, »

3 Reasons You Need to Watch Jonathan Glazer’s ‘Birth’ This Week

19 hours ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s a little too early to be celebrating the 10th anniversary of Birth, a movie where “10 years later” has significance, but I’d like to get started on paying commemorative tribute to Jonathan Glazer‘s 2004 masterpiece for a few reasons. Each of these reasons is actually a new movie with some relevance to Birth, and while that makes it sound like the earlier movie is something so ahead of its time that it fits better among the output of 2014, the pertinence is mostly a coincidence. The first reason/movie, however, is rather obvious. Glazer’s first feature since Birth is currently in theaters, and it couldn’t be any more worth the wait. Outside of both movies beginning with a kind of natal moment for a main character and the way they could be aesthetically connected, reverse-sequentially, through snow-filled settings, there’s little similarity between the movies. The new one, Under the Skin »

Hollywood Stars Michelle Williams, James Franco and Zach Braff Walk the Broadway Boards (Videos)

16 April 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Why is Sam Mendes back in New York with "Cabaret?" Michelle Williams. She's the talk of the town as she makes her Broadway debut as song-and-dance ingenue Sally Bowles opposite Alan Cumming in Roundabout's revival of the dark musical "Cabaret," directed by Mendes, a prolific stage director before foraying into film with his Oscar-winning debut "American Beauty" in 1999. (Watch a clip from "Cabaret" below.) While many Hollywood stars are packing up their bags and moving to television, Williams is not the only young A-lister heading to a new arena: Broadway. Scarlett Johansson won a Featured Actress Tony for her debut role in "A View from the Bridge" in 2010. And this Tony season, an unprecedented number of movie and Hollywood stars under 40 are hitting Broadway for the first time," writes the La Times in a feature on Broadway rookies Williams, Zach Braff and James Franco, as well as a few familiar faces from TV including Chris. »

Chadwick Boseman Rumored To Play Black Panther In Avengers: Age of Ultron

16 April 2014 9:31 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The latest bit of speculation to hit the internet regarding Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron comes to us courtesy of Nerd Reactor, who thinks that 42 star Chadwick Boseman may be showing up as Black Panther in the film.

Black Panther is one of the most prominent minority superheroes and in the comic books, he is most often depicted as the ruler of the fictional African country, Wakanda. Nerd Reactor quotes a report from Devin Faraci of Badass Digest, who says that the plot of the new Avengers film will involve the titular villain Ultron building his armor out of the material vibranium (the same material that Captain America’s shield is made out of), which he gets from Wakanda. So presumably, that’s how Panther will tie in.

Frankly, it’s about time the Black Panther made an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Marvel movies, »

Elizabeth Olsen "Terrified" of Spilling Avengers: Age of Ultron Secrets, Slightly Intimidated by Cast

16 April 2014 6:52 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The Avengers is one of the most profitable films of all time, earning $1.5 billion since its April 2012 release. So when Elizabeth Olsen was cast as the Scarlet Witch in the sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron, she was understandably nervous about joining returning cast members Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Mark Ruffalo. "With a situation like The Avengers where there's already an established franchise, you're the newbies. That's kind of intimidating," the actress tells Flaunt of joining the movie with Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who plays her twin. "But I feel like I swing back and forth.

Which Of These Sexy Catsuits Are Good In A Fight And Which Are Way Too Tight?

16 April 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | TheFabLife - Movies | See recent TheFabLife - Movies news »

View Photo Gallery

From Katniss to Catwoman (all three of them), we’ve seen our favorite Hollywood actresses suit up in skin-tight costumes affectionately known as “catsuits.” Yes, they are all incredibly sexy, but are any of these catsuits legitimately super suits? As in, how useful are any of these tight outfits when these characters are in a tight spot?

We might have fun ogling Chris Evans‘ butt when he’s suited up as Captain America or melting over Chris Hemsworth‘s crazy arms when he’s geared up as Thor, but when it comes to fight scenes, both guys are always dressed to defeat their foes. But what about Scarlett Johansson? Is Black Widow’s hip-hugging outfit in Captain America: The Winter Soldier there to help her kick the bad guys’ butts, or is it only designed so guys in audience can stare at her butt? Is there a »

Avengers: Age of Ultron - Paul Bettany confirms role as The Vision

16 April 2014 3:01 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Paul Bettany has confirmed his role in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The Transcendence actor will play the Vision in Joss Whedon's upcoming Marvel Studios sequel.

Bettany revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live that the rumours that he would graduate from Iron Man's AI butler Jarvis to the iconic Avenger were correct.

"He can do all sorts of things, but I'm not allowed to really talk about them and what we're going to do, because there might be a Marvel agent in the room who will actually wrestle me to the ground and fire me," he said.

Bettany has lent his voice to the three Iron Man films and The Avengers.

"Everything's a double-edged sword, because I was playing Jarvis for years," he continued. "My job was I would turn up at a recording studio for 45 minutes, do all my stuff, they would give me a huge bag of cash and then I'd go home. »

Film Review: ‘Transcendence’

15 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Transcendence” is a most curious name for a movie that never shakes free from those hoary old cliches about the evils of technology and the danger by which man plays at becoming a god. The man in question here is Johnny Depp, whose listless lead performance as a brilliant scientist in the field of artificial intelligence does little to aid this overplotted, dramatically undernourished debut feature from longtime Christopher Nolan d.p. Wally Pfister. Arriving at a crowded spring box office, the pic will test Depp’s drawing power outside of the Disney franchise factory, before weak word of mouth and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” send it packing.

One of the manifold pleasures of Spike Jonze’s “Her” was how elegantly it shrugged off decades of speculative fiction in which technological progress correlated to a loss of human individualism. In its place was the delightful suggestion that, rather than battling us for domination, »

Jonathan Glazer talks getting 'Under the Skin' with Scarlett Johansson

15 April 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr)As the director of music videos for Radiohead, Jamiroquai and Massive Attack, Jonathan Glazer cultivated a reputation early in his career for creating distinctive and emotionally resonant imagery. As a feature director, he has expertly shaped those muscular visuals into powerful stories, in "Sexy Beast", "Birth" and now "Under the Skin". In his latest, he razes the machinery of science fiction by turning an invasion story – albeit by one alien – into a visceral journey through its main character’s discovery of humanity. Played by Scarlett Johansson, the character lays herself bare and sheds her preconceptions as she accomplishes her dubious tasks, seducing her victims even as their interactions awaken her consciousness, and her empathy. Glazer spoke with Spinoff Online about eschewing so many of the conventions of genre and even familiar storytelling structures and convincing Johansson to trust him on a journey that would require her to be naked, »
