Spike Jonze is back after a four year hiatus with what looks to be another mind bending journey due later this year entitled “Her.” Jonze wrote and directed the not so unrealistic tale which follows a lonely writer named Theodore Twombly played by Joaquin Phoenix. After a long term with his girlfriend comes to an end Twombly becomes infatuated with a new artificial intelligence based computer operating system. The system, voiced by Scarlett Johansson, becomes a personal assistant, friend, and eventually goes deeper as you’ll see from the trailer. Takes the concept of Siri to a whole other level.
The forward thinking film looks to be beautifully shot with a stellar cast. Definitely intrigued. The film originally set to hit theaters in November has been pushed back to January 10th, 2014.
