Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara and Amy Adams star in the first Her trailer

Joaquin Phoenix in Her

His films are a staple on critics’ top ten lists, but Spike Jonze doesn’t always find commercial success with his unique films.  After watching the first trailer for his latest effort, HER, I don’t think he’ll break either of those trends here.  The film is about a man (played by Joaquin Phoenix) in the near future that buys the world’s first artificial intelligence operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson) and then proceeds to fall in love with it as they grow closer and closer.  So yeah, it’s right up there with Jonze’s other films like BEING JOHN MALKOVICH or ADAPTATION.  HER has flown under the radar so far, but with a unique story, great cast and a proven director, this will have to be one to catch before the end of the year.

HER also has an outstanding cast, including Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, Amy Adams, Chris Pratt, Olivia Wilde and Portia Doubleday, along with the voice of Scarlett Johansson.  The Spike Jonze directed film has a limited release on November 20th, but no wide release date set yet.
