Under the Skin - A24 Films - Blu-ray and DVD Director: Jonathan Glazer Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Antonia Campbell-Hughes,Michael Moreland. Full cast + crew Considering it's about an alien (Scarlett Johansson) who visits the remote countryside of Scotland, most people are calling Under the Skin a sci-fi movie. And that's certainly fair game, but that doesn't really sell how utterly terrifying Jonathan Glazer's film is at times. It's not strictly a horror movie, but some of the scenes and imagery here are more bone chilling and unforgettable than anything I've seen in a strict horror movie so far in 2014. Beautiful and haunting, Under the Skin is a hard film to enjoy, but an easy film to appreciate. Certainly recommended...

A host of young talent is set to star in a new "quantum theory" thriller DxM announced at Cannes today.
The story follows a group of young bio-engineers who realize that quantum theory can be used to transfer motor skills from one brain to another. Believing this will lead to intellectual equality among humans, the group soon faces dark forces threatening to subvert the technology as an instrument for mass control.
Tom Payne (represented by Curtis Brown) leads the group as Jaxon, described as extremely intelligent and motivated, and the driving force behind the new technology. Tom also recently filmed the leads in The Physician and British indie feature Winter (aka Barking at Trees).
Melia Kreiling (represented in the UK by Piers Nimmo) plays Stella, a mystery to the rest of the group, a highly skilled bio engineer who specialises in everything. Part Greek and part American, Melia trained in »
