Competition: Win ‘Under the Skin’ *closed*

Directed by acclaimed British filmmaker Jonathan Glazer (whose previous stellar outings include Sexy Beast and Birth), Under the Skin (2013) features an absolutely mesmerising performance from American actress Scarlett Johansson as a seductive alien temptress preying upon lonely male hitchhikers in Scotland. To celebrate the home entertainment release of Under the Skin this coming Monday (14 July), we have THREE Blu-ray copies of Glazer’s unforgettable sci-fi offering to offer out to our readers courtesy of the fine folks at UK distributors StudioCanal. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Loosely adapted from Michael Faber’s novel of the same name, Under the Skin has undergone a decade-long transition from page to screen, with performances heightened in the finished film by Glazer’s singular decision to shoot many of Johansson’s scenes as unscripted conversations with non-actors, using hidden cameras. Johansson’s revealing performance excitingly displays a further willingness to not only bare her own skin, but to deviate from convention as her character battles with burgeoning emotions in a world filled with feeling. Unsure as to why she acts the way she does, the conflicted emotion she gradually feels for her victims endangers her own existence.

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE copies of Under the Skin on Blu-ray, just answer the following simple question:

Scarlett Johansson will play a genetically enhanced assassin in which upcoming thriller from Luc Besson?

a) Leona
b) Lucy
c) Samantha
