It's been four years since Spike Jonze directed his last feature film, Where the Wild Things Are, and we have the first trailer for his fantastic-looking next film Her, which stars Joaquin Phoenix, Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Chris Pratt, and Olivia Wilde.
I love Jonze's storytelling style, and this is basically his idea of a romantic film. It's so intriguingly different from anything that's been done before. The story is about a man who falls in love with a piece of software that is comparable to Apple's Siri. Here's the synopsis:
In the not so distant future, Theodore (Phoenix), a lonely writer purchases a newly developed operating system designed to meet the user’s every needs. To Theodore’s surprise, a romantic relationship develops between him and his operating system. This unconventional love story blends science fiction and romance in a sweet tale that explores the nature of love and the ways that technology isolates and connects us all.
The movie is set to be released on November 20th!
