Special “UNDER THE SKIN” screening in NYC with director in attendanceMovies/TV,News Michael Gingold
It’s no joke: On April Fool’s Day, New York-area genre fans will have a chance to get a sneak peek at one of the year’s most intriguing and anticipated movies, the Scarlett Johansson-starring UNDER THE SKIN.
BAMcinématek is presenting this special showing of UNDER THE SKIN on Tuesday, April 1 at 7:30 p.m. at Brooklyn, NY’s BAM Rose Cinemas (30 Lafayette Avenue), as part of a minifestival of the three features helmed by Jonathan Glazer. The director will be on hand for a Q&A after UNDER THE SKIN, which stars Johansson as an alien being in human form who prowls the streets of Glasgow, stalking and preying on human males (see review here). Also part of the retrospective are screenings of Glazer’s crime drama SEXY BEAST (Wednesday, April 2 at 4:30, 7 and 9:30 p.m.) and the dark mystery BIRTH starring Nicole Kidman (Thursday, April 3 at 4:30, 7 and 9:30 p.m.); both of these features will be accompanied by samples of Glazer’s award-winning commercials and music videos. Tickets will be on sale soon at BAM’s official website; watch for our cover story/Glazer interview in Fango #332, on sale soon.
