Watch: Joaquin Phoenix Smitten by HAL 9000 in Trailer Remix of 'Her'
While there's plenty of romance hitting the big screen this weekend with About Last Night, Endless Love and Winter's Tale, the best movie for Valentine's Day you could see (if you can deal with a bit of sadness with your romance) is Spike Jonze's Best Picture nominated Her. But if that's not your cup of tea on this holiday of passion, then maybe you'll find some fun in this trailer remix that sees Joaquin Phoenix still falling in love with his operating system, but this time it's not Scarlett Johansson in his ear. This time it's HAL 9000 from Stanley Kubrick's sci-fi classic 2001: A Space Odyssey, and it makes for quite a pairing.
Here's the trailer remix of Her featuring HAL 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey (via HuffPo):
Set in LA, slightly in the future, Her follows Theodore Twombly, a complex, soulful man who makes his living writing touching, personal letters for other people. Heartbroken after the end of a long relationship, he becomes intrigued with a new, advanced operating system, which promises to be an intuitive entity in its own right, individual to each user. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet Samantha, a bright, female voice, who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny. As her needs and desires grow, in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other. Written & directed by Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Where the Wild Things Are). Warner Bros released Her in wide release on January 10th.
