Johansson's film debut came in 1994, when she was cast in North. In 1998, her performance in The Horse Whisperer, when she was just 14, earned her a great deal of praise from film critics and audiences alike.

In 2001, Johansson appeared in Ghost World. Two years later, her performance alongside Bill Murray in Lost in Translation earned her a Best Actress award.

2004 was a busy year for Johansson. Not only was she invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, but she also appeared in three films: The Perfect Score, In Good Company and A Love Song for Bobby Long.

2005 saw Johansson star alongside Ewan McGregor in The Island. She also starred in Match Point, directed by Woody Allen, later that year.

In 2006, Johansson starred in The Black Dahlia, a film noir movie, directed by Brian De Palma. Johansson received a number of negative reviews for her role in the film, with many arguing that she was a bad choice for the role and had been miscast. The same year, she also appeared in The Prestige, directed by Christopher Nolan.

Johansson's next two major projects were 2007's The Nanny Diaries and 2008's The Other Boleyn Girl, which also starred Eric Bana and Natalie Portman.
