Strangely brilliant trailer for Her

joaquin-phoenix-her.jpg

Call us deliberately contrary but we've got a soft spot for incredibly unconventional movie romances. So while you won't see us rewatching Pretty Woman any time soon, we'd happily take another dose of Ryan Gosling falling for a blow-up doll in Lars and the Real Girl.

On a similarly bizarre and potentially brilliant note, a new trailer has emerged for Her, the new film from Being John Malkovich director Spike Jonze. Like that film, it takes an equally gonzo premise and fills it with a set of damn fine actors.

This time, we follow the story of Ted, played by Joaquin Phoenix, who falls for, wait for it, a computer. Well, a computer voiced by Scarlett Johansson. Able support is provided by Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Olivia Wilde.

The trailer makes it look like an instant winner, albeit for those of a certain disposition.

Her hits cinemas later this year
