This tuesday 3rd of December, Warner Bros unveiled a new trailer for Spike Jonze new film Her. This original rom-com in the mood of our times has an all-star cast that includes Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Scarlett Johansson’s voice that you will easily recognize.
The first trailer was more of an introduction, setting the film’s mood on an music by Aphex Twin. Now, for this second trailer that goes deeper into the emotional atmosphere of the film, the music is by Arcade Fire (“Supersymmetry”); which is not really surprising as the band tweeted about their second collaboration with Spike Jonze few weeks ago.
Her, tells the story about Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) living in the near future in L.A who falls in love with a computer operating system (Scarlett Johansson’s voice), a new entity that has a partial liberty and a conscience. Which is why we came across this sentence in the trailer:
“Are you dating your computer?”
The film is due out on January 10th in the US and January 24th in the UK.
