Her trailer [HD]
The trailer for the next Spike Jonze film, Her, is out and our interests are officially piqued. Spike Jonze has this way of creating characters and making us feel exactly what they feel. That’s how I felt, anyway, about the coming of age film, Where the Wild Things Are. Her is about Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix), a contemporary young writer who purchases an advanced AI operating system. Think Siri but with feelings and a sexy voice (Scarlett Johansson). Somehow Theodore develops an emotional attachment to the operating system that he calls Samantha and his life changes forever. Many movies and TV shows have played with the idea of AI becoming seemingly indistinguishable from humans but there is usually a taboo associated with “mingling” with them. Whether or not its okay to date a sexy OS in the movie Her is yet to be determined. The movie stars Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams, and Olivia Wilde. It is set to be released on November 20, 2013.
