Spike Jonze's Sci-Fi Romance 'Her' Finally Gets A Release Date

It feels like an age since we've had a Spike Jonze movie in theaters. Of course the filmmaker has never had a particular sense of urgency to his output, with only three films in fourteen years, and a seven year gap between "Adaptation" and 2009's "Where The Wild Things Are." Even with terrific shorts like "I'm Here" to tide us over we've been looking longingly out the window for news of the director's next film, "Her."

Turns out we should have been spending less time looking out the window, and more time keeping an eye on Box Office Mojo's release calendar, as it's revealed that Warner Bros will be releasing the film on Wednesday November 20th. The film, which stars Joaquin Phoenix as a man in the near-future who falls in love with his operating system, also features Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Olivia Wilde. The film is opening the same week as "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," "Delivery Man" and "Nebraska," and if you're in L.A, you can get a look even earlier, as Jonze will be presenting footage at the LA Film Festival next month.

    Whoa when did Scar Jo join the cast? Also - no more Rooney and Olivia Wilde ughh. But stoked for Joaquin and Adams. Adams is going to have a STELLAR year between Man of Steel, Her and then of course American HUSTLER.

    Box Office Mojo says Scarlett Johansson and Chris Pratt are in this. Can anyone verify that?

    Thanks, jdfree. Just saw this from Warner Bros' Twitter:

    "Spike Jonze's new film, 'Her', w/ Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Scarlett Johansson, Rooney Mara, Chris Pratt & @OliviaWilde to open Nov. 20th."

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure Pratt is. Right after he got back from shooting Zero Dark Thirty last summer he Tweeted a video where he had a mustache (leftover from the ZDT beard I assume) and mentioned he was in his trailer on the set of a movie with Joaquin Phoenix. He deleted it right away though. I assume it was because he wasn't supposed to talk about it yet.

    I had no idea Scarjo was in this film....

    I could've also sworn this film would be distributed by Sony.

    It seems Sony is handling only the international sales. I thought they would distribute it in US as well.
