Boasting a bankable Hollywood star in a decidedly unconventional narrative, Jonathan Glazer’s stunning Under The Skin starring Scarlett Johansson (who also stars in this weekend’s fellow opener Captain America 2) proved a winning mix in the Specialty Box Office for distributor A24 in its opening weekend. The film, Glazer’s first in 10 years, grossed a robust $140K in four L.A. and NYC theaters. That comes in at a $35K screen average, easily the biggest since the The Grand Budapest Hotel‘s bombshell $202K PTA when it opened March 9. Scarlett Johansson Under the SkinUnder The Skin‘s initial numbers also bode well for A24, which opened in 2012 and had a streak of box office successes over last year, including Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers, which had an $87,667 PTA when it opened last March ($14.1M cume), The Spectacular Now ($49,354 PTA in 4 theaters last August and a $6.85M cume), The Bling Ring ($42,879 PTA in 5 theaters last June and a $5.8M cume) and Ginger & Rosa ($14,279 PTA in 3 theaters in March 2012, $1M cume).

Said A24 this weekend: “[Under The Skin] opened to rave reviews and sold out shows in New York and Los Angeles this weekend. This unique cinematic event is second only to The Grand Budapest Hotel as the highest limited specialized film opening of the year. Scarlett Johannson, who stars in both Under The Skin and the Captain America sequel, was a box office star this weekend dominating the box office with Captain America and Under The Skin having the highest per screen average in the country.”

A24 noted that the title, which it acquired out of Toronto last year, is “an art movie that people are embracing.” A spokesperson told me Sunday that they “couldn’t sell more tickets” at its showing in New York’s Union Square. The film is also attracting a “younger audience.” Glazer traveled to the U.S. for two weeks in the lead up to its release here promoting the film. He participated in Q&A in Union Square this weekend. Under The Skin will expand to about 20 locations next week and will head to the top 50 markets by April 25.

You know what the best thing is about this Friday (April 4)? We’re getting a double helping of Scarlett Johansson in movie theaters — as Black Widow in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and as an alien seductress who likes to eat her men whole in “Under the Skin.”

While “Under the Skin” is definitely worth checking out, it may be a little hard to find. So most of us will watch Scarlett take her third turn as super-agent Natasha Romanoff in “Captain America,” where — alongside Cap (Chris Evans), the Falcon (Anthony Mackie), and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) — she hunts down a lethal assassin and uncovers a conspiracy to bring down the intelligence agency S.H.I.E.L.D.

The movie reunites Scarlett with Robert Redford, who plays the head of S.H.I.E.L.D. and who directed and starred with the then-12-year-old actress in “The Horse Whisperer.” We sat down with the lovely Ms. Johansson (who is currently expecting her first child) to talk about that, what happens to the Widow in the next “Avengers” movie, and what Natasha does on her days off.

Moviefone: It’s great to see watch Black Widow evolve over the course of three movies. Did you know what was planned from the start?
Scarlett Johansson: I mean, that was the intention, of course, when I signed up for “Iron Man 2.” The hope was that the audience would respond to my version of the Widow Natasha and want to see more. Because, I mean, I had a wonderful time doing it but you just sort of got to be introduced to the character. And I think the idea of revealing her true identity at the end was in the hopes that people would want to kind of take that and run with it. Of course, I had a really fun, playful sequence in the end there.

Scarlett Johansson has defended her decision to show full frontal nudity in her new movie Under The Skin.
The actress is seen fully naked but heavily blurred in stills from the movie, which have been setting message boards alight across the web.
The stills have been quietly released amid an undergound viral marketing campaign driving traffic to a site promoting the low-budget sci-fi movie, adapted from a Michel Faber novel.

And Scarlett has defended her choice to go nude in the movie, saying it had a ‘lot of intention behind it’.
‘The nudity is written in to the script and I hope the audience agrees that it’s, you know, it’s not really indulging,’ she told MTV.
‘It’s almost like biological in a weird way, I think, and there is a lot of intention behind it.’

And she admitted she did feel self-conscious before the filming.
‘You know I’m not a nudist by nature so of course you feel self-conscious about it beforehand.
‘But it actually allowed me to realize and explore what kind of judgments I had about myself because I had to abandon those and really see myself as blank sort of slate and it was an interesting exercise for sure.’
Along with the chatter generated by the ‘leaked’ nude pictures of Scarlett, a viral marketing campaign is also picking up interest in the film.
Rather than splashing out on big billboards, the marketing team have placed enticing adverts in the ‘personal section’ of Craigslist sites.
