Gladiator actor, Joaquin Phoenix, stars in the first trailer for the upcoming film Her. The film includes a star-studded cast of Scarlett Johansson, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Olivia Wilde.
The film’s concept is that a lonely man by the name of Theodore (played by Phoenix) falls in love with a Siri-like computer… hold on, does this sound familiar? Fellow lovers of CBS comedy, The Big Bang Theory, will remember a similar incident involving Raj Koothrappali. To refresh your memories, here is the clip below:
Moving swiftly on, this Spike Jonze directed film, will go down the drama route as opposed to comedy. Scarlett Johansson voices the character of Samantha, the love interest in the film.
Samantha, hailed as the ‘world’s first artificially intelligent operating system’, begins organising Theodore’s life for him via his computer. Their bond begins to deepen and take on the form of a ‘relationship’ when Samantha starts asking him deep questions late at night.

Currently there is only an American release date, which is set for November 20th 2013. Stay tuned, as we’ll keep you up to date with all the latest news on the film.
