2013 Fall Film Preview, Her, American Hustle, Counselor
With this week feeling, release-wise, a little like the industry at large is taking a deep breath while effecting the gear change from Summer tentpole scheduling to awards season programming, it’s a good moment to pause and take a look at the goodies to come in the waning months of 2013. It’s a pretty stellar lineup, as films we've seen throughout the festival year start to make their way into awards-friendly end-of-year slots, vying with films we haven't yet seen but have been patiently, and in some cases pantingly, looking forward to for months now. In fact the lineup is so stellar that for the purposes of whittling down a manageable list of the films we're most anticipating, we made the decision to exclude anything that features in our Most Anticipated Toronto Internatioal Film Festival list just to narrow the field a little.

When the trailer for Spike Jonze's "Her" dropped a couple weeks back, it was a bombshell. It not only looked pretty damn great, but it also brought with it all sorts of little bits of music news, including the reveal that Arcade Fire would be providing the score and Karen O—the Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman who tuned up "Where The Wild Things Are"—had a new song for the movie too. And well, now you can hear the whole damn thing.

There is no doubt that last week's arrival of the trailer for Spike Jonze's "Her" made major waves. Not only was a surprisingly heartfelt and charming spot for a movie that was a question mark for many, it was also buoyed by news that it will be powered by a score from Montreal's Arcade Fire. And Warner Bros. has certainly heard the early buzz and now they're hoping it can turn into some award seasons hardware.

Of all the movies set to show their wares this fall, perhaps the one that has been kept the most in the dark is Spike Jonze's "Her." The set photos that have circulated certainly don't betray anything of what his approach will be, and there have been no official stills, posters, teasers or websites to give up the game. That being said, Jonze did provide a peek to those who were lucky enough to be at the L.A. Film Festival in June, showing two clips from the oddball romance that stars Joaquin Phoenix, Chris Pratt, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde and (the voice of) Scarlett Johansson. Ostensibly, the movie is about a man who falls in love with a computer operating system, but as always, it's much more than that.
