First ScarJo Rips Off ‘Species’, Now ‘Limitless’


scarlett johansson under the skin movie

Call me Maybe, but doesn’t anyone else notice the last two non-Marvel movies Scarlett Johansson has starred in are kind of ripoffs of two other popular movies? Take a look:

“Under The Skin”

“A voluptuous woman of unknown origin combs the highway in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring a succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again.”

UPDATE: My boss tells me this “might be one of the craziest flicks I’ve ever seen”. He saw it TWICE in the theater. Also said comparing “Under the Skin” to “Species” is like comparing “Moonraker” to “2001: A Space Odyssey”. Alrighty then.

“Species”

“A sensual but deadly creature who can change from a beautiful woman to an armour-plated killing machine in the blink of an eye tries to find a mate and breed.”

“Lucy”

A woman wakes up after a night of hard partying to learn she has a bag of unknown drugs in her stomach only to find out the drugs unlock all the powers of her brain and body.

UPDATE: My gut says that other than the ‘miracle-drug-turns-human-superhuman’ plot point, these 2 movies won’t share much else in common. Notice how I stuck to the movie’s premise and said ‘my gut’? That’s called wit. Count it. Championship. Confetti. Trophy. Statue. Hall of Fame. Tributes. Grave.

***

“Limitless”

A man takes a pill that unlocks all the powers of his brain and body.

Sure, I’m over-simplifying things and I don’t mean to be a dick and I know Hollywood’s running out of ideas, but hoo-wee Scarlett, how come you keep getting suckered into being the sultry face of these copycats?

I’ll still probably see them. Damn me and my mind-controlling penis. Now, THAT’S a movie she should star in. Cue Porky Pig.
