THE TRAILER HAS DROPPED: ‘Her’

…also known as the movie: SIRI GAINS SENTIENCE AND FINDS LOVE. 

Hehe. I kid. I kid. 

Anyways, the new trailer for Spike Jonze‘s new movie, Her, has finally dropped. And I’m going to be the first to say that it looks weird…a good kind of weird.

If Jonze’s name seems familiar to you, it’s because Jonze has previously directed a couple of thought-provoking works including Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, and Where The Wild Things Are. Her will mark his first venture into solo screenwriting; so, I think it should prove to be very interesting.

I know, I know.

Okay? What the f*ck is it about, Lex?

Chill. I was getting that.

So, Her happens to be about an insightful, yet complicated guy—Theodore Twombley—who’s main work entails writing beautiful, personal letters for others. After a very long relationship ends, Twombley acquires a super advanced A.I. System to help him get his life together. He gets more than what he bargains for when he meets “Samantha”, (the aforementioned A.I.). Samantha proves to be aware, perceptive, and amazingly lively and witty. The two end up forging an unlikely friendship, which may evolve into love in the process.

A rather unique premise, right? 

Almost sounds like When Harry Met Siri.

According to Jonze, there's A LOT you can help with, SIRI.

Moving on, while the premise is nice, I’d like to point out who’s actually in this movie to begin with. Joaquin Phoenix plays the titular character Theodore Twombley, while Scarlett Johansson stars opposite of him as the voice of “Samantha”. I’m specifically excited that we get to see Phoenix in another movie this year after his excellent turn in The Master last year. I’m glad he’s back in his acting groove and hopefully, he’s put his batsh*t crazy years behind him.

LOOK AT JOAQUIN. I WANT YOU ALL TO LOOK AT JOAQUIN.

As for the beautiful Johansson, I’ve been following her since before 2007 and her turn in The Nanny Diaries and I am glad that she’s finally getting more projects to shine in. She’ll also be starring opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Don Jon later this year and will be returning as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow in Captain America: The Winter Soldier next year. I wish her the best.

Isn't she lovely?

The notable faces don’t stop there, either. People like Olivia Wilde, Rooney Mara, Amy Adams, and Chris Pratt will be dropping in as supporting characters and a cast like that just makes me want to see the movie that much more.

In closing, lets hope that in a movie season that has been marked with predictable sequels, unnecessary reboots/remakes, and lackluster “originals”, Her will end up being delightfully fresh and great too. I plan on seeing it and you guys probably should too.
