Spike Jonze’s Her has been reaping in acclaim since it was released for a limited theatrical run at the end of last year. Numerous critical collectives have named it the best, or at least one of the best movies of the year, for good reason, it is really damn good. Last Friday, the film was given a wider release, expanding into more and more markets, and to promote the release, Her has a new behind the scenes trailer.
Like the movie itself, this trailer is something a little different than what you normally expect. Her is the story of Theodore Twombly (Joachim Phoenix), a lonely man going through a divorce who falls in love with Samantha, who just so happens to be an artificially intelligent operating system voiced by Scarlett Johansson. The film paints a peculiar, but imminently believable picture of a future where, not only can such a thing happen, but where it doesn’t seem so strange.
