Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson star in new trailer for Her: watch now
A new trailer has arrived for Her, Spike Jonze’s romantic drama with a difference, as Joaquin Phoenix sets about falling in love with his Siri-esque operating system. In fairness to him, he has gone through something of a traumatic break-up with former wife Rooney Mara, and said operating system is voiced by Scarlett Johansson. It’s an odd premise but a surprisingly moving one, particularly given the tenderness of Phoenix’s performance, with award-season recognition already being touted… Take a look at the new trailer, below: It’s good to have Phoenix back in the saddle after his mid-career hiatus, and combined with last year’s appearance in The Master, it seems he’s on a rich run of form. Directed by Jonze and co-starring Amy Adams, Olivia Wilde and Chris Pratt, Her will open in the UK on 24 January 2014.
