Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth), UNDER THE SKIN features an absolutely mesmerising performance from Scarlett Johansson (Her, Don Jon) as a seductive alien preying upon hitchhikers in Scotland.

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.

under_2 - Copy

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.

Check out the trailer:

STUDIOCANAL will be releasing RoboCop on Blu-ray next week and we have 3 copies to giveaway.

ROBOCOP_3D_BLU

Directed by José Padilha (Elite Squad), ROBOCOP is a reimagining of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 classic, in which a critically injured cop is transformed into a part-man, part-robot police officer designed to rid Detroit of crime.

The year is 2028 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of robot technology. With robotic drones winning American wars around the globe, they feel ready to translate this technology to the home front. When loving husband, father and skilled cop Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman – Easy Money, TV’s The Killing) is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp – headed by CEO Raymond Sellars (Michael Keaton – Batman, Need For Speed) – utilises its remarkable science of robotics to save his life. Returning to the streets of Detroit equipped with amazing new abilities, Murphy must deal with issues a regular man has never had to face before.

Kinnaman and Keaton are joined by the ever-brilliant Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) as the compromised scientist Dr. Dennett Norton, Samuel L Jackson (Avengers Assemble, Pulp Fiction) as TV presenter Pat Novak and Abbie Cornish (Sucker Punch, Limitless) as Murphy’s wife Clara.

Merging thrilling action with human drama, ROBOCOP is a breathtaking, smart and uncompromising sci-fi thrill ride that’s incredibly easy to comply with!

With the recent release of The Dark Knight Rises on Blu-ray, there is also an app you can download that unlocks exclusive content from the disc – we take a look at it.

CDW The Dark Knight Rises FX HD - 1

This is how the app is described:

Become one of Gotham’s Most Wanted, put yourself in the Camo Tumbler and add the Tumbler to your own personal video! Share with friends via Facebook, Twitter, etc.

CDW The Dark Knight Rises FX HD - 2

Put the Camo Tumbler in your video
– Shoot your own video and have the Camo Tumbler to drive through it. Share your video with friends!

Photo Opps
– Put yourself in the Camo Tumbler in a photo
– Place yourself in The Dark Knight Rises “RISE” poster

Gotham City’s Most Wanted
– Place the mask from Batman, Bane or Catwoman mask onto your photo and share with friends

And more!

You can use the app without syncing it to your Blu-ray disc, but you won’t get the exclusive content, but if you don’t have a Blu-ray player that is connected to your network then you should still try the app.

CDW The Dark Knight Rises FX HD - 10

Syncing is very simple – just select the Second Screen menu option and wait.

CDW The Dark Knight Rises FX HD - 5

Once you are in the app you have a number of different options to choose from, including looking at the characters and locations in the film, a number of featurettes you can watch, and even a scene explorer – the choice is yours.

CDW The Dark Knight Rises FX HD - 11

You can select any of the main characters to learn more about them and see exclusive behind the scenes content – personally I like Selina, I wonder why?

CDW The Dark Knight Rises FX HD - 3 CDW The Dark Knight Rises FX HD - 4

The featurettes are really interesting too.

CDW The Dark Knight Rises FX HD - 7

One of the really cool features is the ability to either sync the app to the movies or sync the movie to the app. What this does is enable you to jump straight to a scene in the film if you are looking at it on the app, or look at it in the app if you are watching it in the film, all at the press of a button. The film automatically pauses and continues so that you don’t miss anything.

CDW The Dark Knight Rises FX HD - 6

You can examine lots of the vehicles and gadgets from the film too.

CDW The Dark Knight Rises FX HD - 8

And learn a lot about the behind-the-scenes activities.

CDW The Dark Knight Rises FX HD - 9

And you can even make a video that includes a Camo Tumbler from the film.

CDW The Dark Knight Rises FX HD - 12

This is quite fun, so you should give it a try – here the tumbler is about to drive over my carpet.

CDW The Dark Knight Rises FX HD - 13

You can also use the camera on your iPad or iPhone to take a picture of yourself wearing one of the masks if you fancy yourself the next Batman or Catwoman.

Overall I was very impressed with the app, especially because it was free. Yes, once you have gone through all the videos, taken some pictures and made a video with the tumbler you have pretty much done everything, but there is a lot to do with around 130 syncable events to got though. I can easily see a lot more movies coming with Second Screen abilities in the future, and I look forward to them.

Just make sure you have actually watched the film first before playing with the app – you don’t wait any spoilers now do you?
