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 Avengers teaser trailer

This is a few days old, of course, but since I’d spaced on posting it here and Alexander Gajic reminded me, so…

I’m very, very excited about this movie, naturally, but other than the Hulk, I didn’t see much in this to get me more excited about it than I already was. They have to save something for the full trailer, of course. (And hopefully for the movie, too.)

Written and directed by Joss Whedon (you know who he is), The Avengers hits theaters on May 4, 2012 in the US.

Trailer Watch: Matt Damon and Scarlett Johannson in We Bought a Zoo

The use of Sigur Rós in movie trailers is fast becoming a cliché… and yet, it works on my dumb ass every single time. Somebody tell me if this movie actually looks good, or if it’s just the music?

Cameron Crowe’s We Bought a Zoo hits theaters on December 23rd — optimistically banking on the Christmas family movie/Oscarbait season crowd — and stars Matt Damon, Scarlett Johansson, Thomas Haden Church, Patrick Fugit and JB Smoove. Plus an adorable little girl.
