Prediction: Under the Skin
Shiri’s Prediction: Okay, I cheated a little it because I read an article in the New York Times about the film before I watched the trailer; that is, in fact, how I heard about it in the first place. If I hadn’t, I’d have absolutely no idea what it was about and I’d probably be all, “Nah, don’t need to see Scarlett Johansson in her underwear. Again.” Apparently, however, she is an alien who trolls the Scottish countryside for men and then kills them for a mysterious purpose. In the end, I think it may be a little on the arty end for me to see in the theatre but I’ll probably hit it up at home at some point. Book’s on reserve at the library, guess I”ll see how that goes first.
Luke’s Prediction: Uh, what did I just watch? That preview had all the style and grace of the previews that used to be before movies that I would rent on dvd or vhs. Not the good movies or the blockbusters, but the weird indie movies. The strange French or Japanese movie, who’s name you would forget, and the trailer for would be better than the movie you just watched.
But, then you have Scarlett Johansson in it, and what looked to be a little bit of a budget. This has the feel of a movie I am going to catch on disc or some late night on demand. Looks good though.
