Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson star in new trailer for Her: watch now

“You’re dating a computer?”

A new trailer has arrived for Her, Spike Jonze’s romantic drama with a difference, as Joaquin Phoenix sets about falling in love with his Siri-esque operating system.

In fairness to him, he has gone through something of a traumatic break-up with former wife Rooney Mara, and said operating system is voiced by Scarlett Johansson.

It’s an odd premise but a surprisingly moving one, particularly given the tenderness of Phoenix’s performance, with award-season recognition already being touted…

Take a look at the new trailer, below:

It’s good to have Phoenix back in the saddle after his mid-career hiatus, and combined with last year’s appearance in The Master, it seems he’s on a rich run of form.

Directed by Jonze and co-starring Amy Adams, Olivia Wilde and Chris Pratt, Her will open in the UK on 24 January 2014.
