Her is the slightly futuristic tale of Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix), a man who falls in love with an advanced operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson). Johansson won the Best Actress award at the recent Rome Film Festival and has generated a fair amount of Oscar and Screen Actors Guild buzz – a feat even more impressive considering she’s never actually seen in the movie (which has led to the Golden Globes ruling her out of their own competition).
The latest trailer, which you can watch below, was released today. Obviously aware of its critical applause thus far, there are lots of ‘Official Selection’ banners and favourable quotes from reviews. Think of it as the ‘For Your Consideration’ promo. Enjoy….
If you’re wondering, the music from the trailer is ‘Supersymmetry’ from Arcade Fire’s latest album, Reflektor. Jonze and the band are no strangers, having collaborated extensively on the short film for their last LP, The Suburbs.
Her also stars Amy Adams (The Muppets, The Fighter), Rooney Mara (The Social Network, Side Effects), Olivia Wilde (Rush, Tron: Legacy), Chris Pratt (Moneyball, The Five-Year Engagement), Bill Hader (Superbad, Adventureland) and Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids, Despicable Me 2).
The movie is currently scheduled for a 10th January, 2014 release in the USA, and the 24th January, 2014 in the UK…just in time for awards season.
