Joaquin Phoenix falls in love with his computer in the new movie Her

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

The first trailer for Spike Jonze's new movie Her has arrived, about a mustachioed Joaquin Phoenix who falls in love with the AI in his computer, voiced by Scarlett Johansson.

I think we can all see where this is going — a thought-provoking examination about the true nature of life, love and relationships, as well as probably loneliness — but I trust Jonze to make it entertainingly weird in the vein of Being John Malkovich and Adaptation.

Her will open in a limited release beginning on November 20th.

DISCUSSION

I once read a piece where the author speculated that programmers, engineers and so on — nerds — often have such poor interpersonal skills because the first and most important relationship they have in their formative years is with a computer. Learning to communicate with a computer is logical, rational and understandable. Once you learn how to do it, you can replicate the results. Even though there are other sorts of computers, other computer languages, they all work on the same basic principles, so once you learn to do it once, it's relatively easy to do it again.

People — not so much.
