Jonathan Glazer‘s Under The Skin is already one of the most talked about movies of 2014, and it hasn’t even been a week since the year started. The sci-fi flick made our list of most anticipated movies, and now we’ve all got another reason to be excited. A24, which last year gave us titles like Spring Breakers and The Spectacular Now, will also release Under The Skin, along with other interesting films.
In Under The Skin, Johansson plays, get this, a seductive alien. The film follows her sexual ventures through Scotland. This is Glazer’s third movie in 13 years, so there’s a lot of people excited for this one. The dark and heavily stylized film tells a story of lust and loneliness, which some critics thought was genius when it first debuted at the Venice Film Festival in 2013. Here’s the trailer in case you missed it.
A24 might be the new kid on the block, but they know how to pick their titles. In 2013, they also released Ginger & Rosa and Sofia Coppola‘s teen drama The Bling Ring. Aside from Under The Skin, they’ll also distribute Enemy and Locke later this year.
Enemy stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a man who becomes obsessed with himself, or rather his doppelganger. The actor teams up with Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve for this adaptation of Jose Saramago‘s 2002 novel The Double, where a tired college professor finds another version of himself in a movie, and later the two become mutually obsessed with each other.
As for Locke, the pic is written and directed by Steven Knight. Tom Hardy stars as a man whose life unravels during a 90-minutes race against time.
Under The Skin will hit theaters April 4th, while Enemy arrives March 14th, and Locke on April 25th.
