Shortly after it was announced that Spike Jonze’s new film Her, starring Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Olivia Wilde and Rooney Mara, had been given a theatrical release date of November 20th, 2013, it has been revealed that Scarlett Johansson and Chris Pratt are also listed as cast members.
This news comes from Warner Brothers Pictures’ Twitter account, which tweeted:
The film was shot in the first quarter of 2012 and through the whole production process there was no mention of Johansson or Pratt, so this announcement is completely out of the blue. As random as it may be though, I’m definitely happy about this reveal.
Johansson and Pratt are both fantastic actors and I think their comedy backgrounds will suit this film perfectly. I also cannot wait »

Late last fall, details of Spike Jonze's most recent film with Joaquin Phoenix finally had some story details and a title locked down. Her is a quirky romance following Theodore (Phoenix), a lonely writer purchases a newly developed operating system (not unlike iPhone's Siri) designed to meet the user’s every needs. To Theodore’s surprise, a romantic relationship develops between him and his operating system. This unconventional love story blends science fiction and romance in a sweet tale that explores the nature of love and the ways that technology isolates and connects us all. And now the film has a release date. More below! Erc Box Office (via SlashFilm) says Her will hit theaters on November 20th this year, which likely means it has a chance at landing some awards for Annapurna Pictures, the same company behind last year's Zero Dark Thirty. In addition to Phoenix, the cast also includes Rooney Mara, »

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 »

Side Effects - Open Road Films - Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD Director: Steven Soderbergh Cast: Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, Jude Law, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Ann Dowd. Full cast + crew For a while now I've wondered if we're reentering the age of fantastic Hollywood thrillers, and Side Effects certainly has all of the ingredients necessary -- a fantastic cast, a fantastic director and a murder mystery -- but it just doesn't gel in the ways one would think. Rooney Mara stars as the depressed wife of a once-successful finance man (Channing Tatum) who goes on an experimental new drug when he's released from prison. It puts her in a pill-induced funk, someone dies, and the question becomes is she a murderer or a victim of bad medicine...

★★☆☆☆ "There's just no telling" says Bob (Casey Affleck) close to the end of David Lowery's Texas-based criminal romance Ain't Them Bodies Saints (2013), screening in the Critics Week sidebar of Cannes. It seems a strange statement, coming after so much talk. Bob and Ruth (Rooney Mara) are childhood sweethearts. She's a poor girl, expecting his child, and he's a petty criminal. When they're surrounded by police, Ruth shoots an officer and Bob decides to take the fall for her. The years go by as Bob serves his sentence and his daughter grows as he writes Ruth a letter a day - providing substantial voiceover material in the off.
Meanwhile, Ruth develops a growing affection for Officer Wheeler (American indie stalwart Ben Foster) - partly because she's guilty for shooting him. Skerritt (Keith Carradine, brother of David), a town elder and local tough guy, keeps an eye on his adopted family »

Set against the backdrop of 1970's Texas Hill Country, Ain't Them Bodies Saints is a romantic American story that follows three characters on various sides of the law - outlaw Bob Muldoon (Casey Affleck), his wife Ruth Guthrie (Rooney Mara), and a local sheriff named Patrick Wheeler (Ben Foster), who gets caught in their crosshairs. »
Tenchi Muyo!: War on Geminar, Part 1 & Part 2
You don’t need to be a fan of the original Tenchi Muyo series to dig its spinoff series, War on Geminar. The 13-episode blu-ray series follows the exploits of Tenchi’s half-brother Kenchi. The series opens up with a great mech action sequence, introducing us to Kenchi as an assassin. Soon enough, he goes from killer to kindhearted to savior. If you’re not familiar with the world, learning some of the rules of how Sacred Mechanoid masters works may take some time, but it’s a fun journey overall, filled with wild antics. The mech fights in episode one and episodes 9-13 are great to watch.

Considering how slowly he produces his feature films, a new movie from Spike Jonze is always a special occasion and it looks like we're going to get one this year as his enigmatic movie Her has now been given a limited release in New York, Los Angeles and Toronto on November 20 through Warner Bros. Pictures. This puts it out two days before fellow auteur Alexander Payne's new movie Nebraska , the Vince Vaughn comedy Delivery Man and the expected blockbuster The Hunger Games: Catching Fire . it will be rolled out to other cities after its initial limited release. We don't know much else about the movie except that it stars Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, Amy Adams, Samantha Morton and Olivia Wilde and we have the vague plot of "A lonely writer develops an unlikely »
Parker and Stand Up Guys are also available on DVD this week. Beautiful Creatures Alice Englert stars as a witch in this romantic, fantastical movie that may fill the void left by the end of the Twilight franchise. Set in the South, the adaptation of the young-adult novel follows Lena (Englert) as she discovers her powers and falls for local boy Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich). Jeremy Irons, Emma Thompson, and Viola Davis add some actor credibility to the cast, but it's Ehrenreich's charisma that makes the biggest impression. The DVD comes with a trailer for author Margaret Stohl's next book, plus deleted scenes. 45% Side Effects Steven Soderbergh directs Rooney Mara and Channing Tatum in a stylish thriller that puts antidepressants under the microscope. When Emily's (Mara) therapist (Jude Law) prescribes her a new drug to treat her anxiety, she comes out of the daze she's been in since her husband (Tatum) returned from prison. »

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
There’s something very familiar about David Lowery’s Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. The writer-director himself might twitch few ears in recognition, after his most recent work, the largely unheralded duo of Lullaby and St. Nick, but in the bones of his latest, which played as part of Critic’s Week here, is the genetics of familiar art. There is almost certainly a major nod here to Badlands, as well as Thieves Like Us, and more generally speaking, Lowery seems intent on re-exploring the essence of that particular period of outlaw movies.
Saints begins with a shoot-out, involving Bob Muldoon (Casey Affleck) and Ruth Guthrie (Rooney Mara,) who are subsequently hauled away. Muldoon is arrested, but the pregnant Guthrie is let go, to live in a comfortable house in a small Texan town called Meridian looked after by the excellent Keith Carradine. We’re not »

A few months after world premiering at Sundance to great acclaim, David Lowery's "Badlands"-style love story "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" had its European unveiling at Cannes over the weekend, following in the footsteps of last year's "Beasts of the Southern Wild," which went on a similar journey before going on to become an Academy Award-nominated indie sensation. Whether the drama has "Beasts"' legs remains to be seen. All we can tell you is that the buzz is warranted. Lowery's drama is the real deal. The morning following its Cannes bow in the Director's Fortnight sidebar, Indiewire sat down with the film's two stars, Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck, to talk about the Cannes reception, revisiting their own work and whether the Lowery-Terrence Malick comparisons many critics have made are valid. Has the film changed since Sundance? Rooney Mara: A little bit, but I'm not sure you'd notice. »

The Swiss watch brand Iwc Schaffhausen gathered stars in France for the Cannes Film Festival in the town of Antibes last night for its For the Love of Cinema party. The location was the luxurious seaside Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, which made for a picturesque night. Rooney Mara, Naomi Watts, and Karolína Kurková were among the famous women who hit the red carpet wearing timepieces from the brand, as did actor Christoph Waltz and race car driver Lewis Hamilton. The group was treated to a performance by Jamiroquai's Jay Kay and dinner inside the hotel's restaurant. Wearing a long-sleeved leather Balmain dress, Karolína discussed her bold choice and said, "It's not short!" She also revealed that her travels to Cannes were partially for work and partially for a family vacation with her husband, Archie Drury, and their son, Tobin. Naomi, meanwhile, wore a chic floral gown from Dolce & Gabbana. She told »
