It was announced yesterday that Spike Jonze's mysterious new movie, "Her," about a man (played by Joaquin Phoenix) who falls in love with his Siri-like operating system, would be released by Warner Bros on November 20th. And today it was revealed that two previously unreported, very exciting cast members will make appearances in Jonze's film: Scarlett Johansson and Chris Pratt.
It is unclear, of course, what roles the actors play (although it is conceivable that Johansson could voice the computer, especially if the settings on the computer call for "breathlessly sexy"). They join previously announced cast members Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Samantha Morton, and Olivia Wilde. This is going to be good. Get More »
Anyone who has ever used a new iPhone knows just how bewitching and bedeviling that cybernetic vixen Siri can be. With her dulcet tones, soothing demeanor and ability to make your every (phone-related) wish come true, she's clearly the frontrunner for Sexiest App Alive.
So it's no wonder that, according to First Showing, Joaquin Phoenix is about to fall head over heels for a Siri clone in the upcoming Spike Jonze film "Her."
We're right there with you, Joaquin. Get More »
Rooney Mara is going to where the wild things are.
The "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" herself has added Spike Jonze to the already impressive list of directors she's worked with as she's signed on to join the latest film from the man behind "Being John Malkovich," according to Variety. Get More »
Carey Mulligan may have gotten her first big break with the indie flick "An Education" (which went on to be nominated for three Oscars and become a little less "indie"), but she's officially made the leap to big budget features.
Fresh off her role opposite Ryan Gosling in the crime thriller "Drive," the doe-eyed thesp has landed two huge new projects—one helmed by the tag team known as Coen Brothers and the other the brainchild of director extraordinaire Spike Jonze.
Mulligan with star in the Coens' drama "Inside Llewyn Davis," which follows a singer-songwriter who navigates New York's folk music scene during the swinging '60s. Get More »
Here's a rather, um, life-affirming little short by "Where the Wild Things Are" helmer Spike Jonze, in which the skeleton of Macbeth tears himself off the cover of his own book to jump the bones (literally) of Mina Harker on the cover of "Dracula." Complications ensue, Herman Melville is involved.
We guarantee you've never quite seen a short film like this, which is animated entirely using 2-D handcrafted felt puppets designed by Olympia Le-Tan, who also wrote the script. Olympia has specialized in making book cover reproductions using this style. Get More »
Hey guys, remember Joaquin Phoenix? Back in the day -- as in, just a couple years ago -- he was one of the coolest, hottest actors in Hollywood, earning raves and Oscar nominations for films like "Gladiator" and "Walk the Line." Then he apparently went completely crazy and became something between a punchline and a footnote.
Well, don't look now, but it seems as though Phoenix was actually crazy like a fox, because he's lining up a series of top line projects -- including, according to indieWire, the lead in a brand new project by director Spike Jonze and screenwriter Charlie Kaufman. Get More »
South By Southwest is like the renegade cousin of prim and pristine Sundance. The film portion of the Austin, Texas-based festival has been kicking for seventeen glorious years, with a week of innovative films by a mix of emerging filmmakers, fresh faces, established talent and a few of the best hold-overs from Sundance.
SXSW finds its roots in rock and roll, and that spirit is alive and burning in this year's film selections. Horror flicks, music docs, sci-fi adventures, introspective dramas, off-kilter comedies and hedgehogs who love drinking beer -- no stone goes unturned.
