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: Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master theatrical trailer

God. Damn.

Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master stars Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jesse Plemons, David Warshofsky, and Amy Adams, and it hits theaters on October 12. You can read a bit more about the film and see the two teaser trailers in this earlier Deleted Scenes post.

Trailer Watch: Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master teaser trailer #2 (and #1)

(Sorry about the pre-roll ad. I’ll replace the video with something better when I can find one.)

A second teaser trailer for Boogie Nights and There Will Be Blood director Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master has found its way to the internet, thanks to the Weinstein Co. The film revolves around a “drifter” (Joaquin Phoenix) who falls in with a charismatic intellectual named Lancaster Dodd shortly after World War II as the latter starts a religious organization called “The Cause” and begins to have doubts as it grows in popularity.

The film also stars Jesse Plemons, David Warshofsky, and Amy Adams. It hits theaters on October 12 — a little earlier than I’d expect for an obvious Oscar contender. Perhaps the Weinsteins are skittish about its Oscar chances due to some parallels between The Cause and Scientology?

The first teaser was released last month and is embedded below, after the jump:
