Trailer Watch: Spike Jonze’s Her

My brother said it best on the Twitters: “if you told me yesterday I’d be excited to see a movie about a guy who falls in love with his phone I would have said you’re crazy”… And, seriously: that’s the premise: Joaquin Phoenix falls in love with Siri (more or less). But Her looks surprisingly engaging, even with that weird premise.

Being John Malkovich and Where the Wild Things Are director Spike Jonze wrote and directs Her, which comes out on November 20, 2013. Just shy of the major Oscarbait dumping grounds, but close enough that the distributor thinks it might be a contender for something.

Scarlett Johansson plays his phone, while Amy Adams and Rooney Mara round out the cast.

Trailer Watch: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo full trailer

The teaser trailer was pretty great, but this… this is amazing. My interest in this film has just shot up through the roof.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo — the first in Columbia Pictures’ planned adaptation of the Stieg Larsson “Millennium Trilogy” — stars Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara, Christopher Plummer, Stellan Skarsgärd, Steven Berkoff, Robin Wright, Yorick van Wageningen and Joely Richardson.

The film hits theaters nationwide on December 21. You can check out this trailer in high def over at Apple, too.

Trailer Watch: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (green band, updated)

Although a bootleg, hand-held camera-in-a-theater, red band version of the teaser trailer for David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo readaptation hit the internet a while ago, I don’t post that crap here. But, whatever. Here’s a slightly different, green band version that should give you a feel for what the movie looks like, if very little else. Not being familiar with the books or the original films — due to my near-total lack of interest in serial killer anything — I have no idea what it’s about. But David Fincher directed it, so I’ll see it.

The film stars Roonery Mara and Daniel Craig, and it hits theaters on December 21.

Fans of the book (or the original films, or neither of those): What do you think?
