While I’m really looking forward to watching Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams‘s performances in Spike Jonze‘s upcoming Her, at the same time I’m really hoping that the whole thing doesn’t devolve into simply waiting for the inevitable-seeming conclusion to play itself out. Unfortunately, this trailer doesn’t help eliminate that feeling at all.
Let’s hope Jonze has at least one or two surprises for us somewhere along the way.
Yeah, the premise here is the kind of goofy crap that could make for a really bad Adam Sandler or Jim Carrey movie. But when instead you’ve got Spike Jonez behind the camera and the man who may very well be his generation’s best actual actor, Joaquin Phoenix in front of it, plus a supporting cast that includes Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, and the voice of Scarlett Johansson as “Samantha” what you wind up with is one of the movies I’m most looking forward to seeing this winter. Simply entitled Her, it’s supposed to hit theaters in November.
