Those looking to geek out on images of Scarlett Johansson as an alien may be a little disappointed to find out she looks more like a real housewife from New Jersey than anything from another world, but then again maybe we haven't seen anything yet. The images come from the upcoming film Under the Skin, from director Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth). In the movie (adapted from Michael Faber's novel), Johansson plays an alien on earth who disguises herself as a sex bomb and roams desolate highways searching for her next human victim. Who is she looking for, and what does she want? We won't spoil it here, but some have compared the twists in this book to The Sixth Sense -- with one reader calling it "an interesting, compelling story that gets turned upside-down, forcing us to confess that we were given all the information we needed, but we came to the wrong conclusions anyway."
No release date is set yet, but expect this at some point in 2012.
