She’s always up for a challenge, and Scarlett Johansson is the hottest alien ever in the new trailer for “Under The Skin.” The freshly-released teaser features the “Lost In Translation” stunner as an extra-terrestrial making her way through Scotland while seducing and consuming men.

Meanwhile, Scarlett told Harper’s Bazaar that she’d love to see Hillary Clinton as the next President of the United States of America, and hasn’t ruled out a political pursuit for herself.

“A full-on career might be a stretch, but I would never close the door on those kinds of things,” she stated, adding, “To be an active member of the community, to be a responsible citizen and to engage politically have always been part of my awareness and part of my life.”

It ain’t easy being the Black Widow sometimes.
Or, more specifically, it ain’t easy fitting into the Black Widow’s skin-tight suit pretty much all the time!
“It’s not that easy to wear the Black Widow outfit, let’s be honest. You can wear the Captain outfit,” Captain America: The Winter Soldier star Chris Evans told E! News at Comic-Con on Saturday.

“He’s tried it on, he can tell you firsthand,” Scarlett Johansson chimed in, razzing her frequent Marvel Universe costar.
“But I don’t know, it just didn’t look as good,” Evans admitted, shrugging good-naturedly.
The hunky star also agreed that he can sympathize with ScarJo’s pain when it comes to sacrificing certain things in order to make weight for those unforgiving superhero getups. Asked what the one thing is that they reach for when the training is done and the suits come off, Johanssen paused for a second.
“Hmm, I don’t know…Just the buffalo sauce!” she offered.
“Just carbs, carbs,” Evans added. “Gluten!”
Overall, however, the experience has obviously been worth it, not least because of the legions of new fans the actors have gained by playing such iconic characters—the love for whom is fully on display at places like Comic-Con. “It’s great, it’s so exciting,” Johansson said. “I never expect that kind of reaction in my life in general, so I’m always thrilled. It’s always a nice surprise, right?”
“It’s a reward,” Evans agreed. “These are the fans that make these movies happen. Without these fans, these movies don’t exist. So giving them a treat, giving them something to look forward to, it’s rewarding.”
And judging by what was revealed at Marvel’s big presentation in Hall H, including footage featuring a first look at Robert Redford as a member of S.H.I.E.L.D., the fans are in for quite a treat.
Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige said that the Captain America sequel would be shared by Johansson and Evans “in a big way” and Joe Russo, who codirected the film with brother Anthony Russo, told Huffington Post: “There’s a very strong connection in the narrative between the events of the end of Avengers that drive this film—and there’s a very strong hand off to Avengers 2 at the end of this movie.”

Shortly after it was announced that Spike Jonze’s new film Her, starring Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Olivia Wilde and Rooney Mara, had been given a theatrical release date of November 20th, 2013, it has been revealed that Scarlett Johansson and Chris Pratt are also listed as cast members.

This news comes from Warner Brothers Pictures’ Twitter account, which tweeted:

“Spike Jonze’s new film, ‘Her’, w/ Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson, Rooney Mara, Chris Pratt & Olivia Wilde to open Nov. 20th.”

The film was shot in the first quarter of 2012 and through the whole production process there was no mention of Johansson or Pratt, so this announcement is completely out of the blue. As random as it may be though, I’m definitely happy about this reveal.

Johansson and Pratt are both fantastic actors and I think their comedy backgrounds will suit this film perfectly. I also cannot wait to see them sharing the screen with the likes of Phoenix, Adams, Wilde and Mara.

For those of you unfamiliar with the film, Her “is a quirky romance following Theodore (Phoenix), a lonely writer purchases a newly developed operating system (not unlike iPhone’s Siri) designed to meet the user’s every needs. To Theodore’s surprise, a romantic relationship develops between him and his operating system.”

Are you excited to see Her? Do you think she will fit well into the film? Let us know in the comments below.

Scarlett Johansson was turned out in her full Black Widow costume and drove around in a sports car. If you weren’t able to get down to the Mall to see “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” as it filmed near the Air & Space Museum and the Capitol on Tuesday, all the local TV news teams went down to check it out and capture the mechanisms of Hollywood filmmaking in all its riveting/tedious glory.
