Dubai -- Rooney Mara, Mark Ruffalo and Naomie Harris added a splash of star power to the Dubai Film Festival’s annual charity gala dinner, One Night to Change Lives, held in collaboration with Oxfam to raise money for the crisis in Syria. Photos: The Scene at THR's 2013 Women in Entertainment Breakfast Mara, who attended the same event last year, was once again making a flying visit to the city, saying she hadn’t had enough time to see any of the films screening at the festival, now in its 10th edition. "I haven’t even been to the top of that,"

Team Fyc highlights our favorite individual fringe Oscar contenders. Here's Philippe Ostiguy...
Last January, waves of chatter came rushing out of Sundance with glowing words for a little American drama that has steadily enchanted audiences since. Though it can’t be credited with much innovation, David Lowery’s Ain’t Them Bodies Saints is an old-fashioned tale of love and crime told with heart, eager to pay tribute to Americana pioneers. Though its sun-kissed cinematography and trio of lead performances by Rooney Mara, Ben Foster and Casey Affleck have been the main talking points, the film earns most of its magic by way of Daniel Hart’s musical contributions, at once delicate and tense, alert and dreaming.
Classically trained violinist Hart, who has released music under his own name as well as with his bands The Physics of Meaning and Dark Rooms, has little film experience: his only other scoring »

Apologies to the five or so of you who read this with any regularity, there was no column last week. Day job woes and Christmas combined to stomp my ass into a fug of inactivity in terms of watching and writing about it. Therefore you get a bumper edition this week with two weeks’ worth of content.
In other big news House of Cards returns to Netflix with season two in February and the Turbo super-fast snail animated series, based on that DreamWorks film that recently came out, debuts in December. Now TV also has you covered during Christmas week by adding a new big title pretty much every day between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day, although apart from Elf on Now TV and a dedicated Christmas selection, there is a disturbing lack of Christmas themed films on the other services.

Warning: Spoilers ahead
The truth about Jessica Biel? She has nightmares about losing her perfect pearly whites.
“I dream sometimes about my teeth falling out,” she said during the Los Angeles special screening of Tribeca Film and Well Go USA’s “The Truth About Emanuel.” “I chew and I’ll have to spit out hundreds and hundreds of teeth. There’s no way that it’s all mine. It’s like I have teeth in there to spare.”
Biel’s costar Kaya Scodelario and the film’s writer-director Francesca Gregorini were also on hand at the Arclight on Dec. 4. Unlike Biel’s dental nightmares, Scodelario, whose character Emanuel is haunted by recurring dreams and fantasies of water (the film was originally titled “Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes” when it made a splash at Sundance), experiences the inexplicable sensation of almost falling in her sleep.

Watch below. Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Chris Pratt and Olivia Wilde also star. The film, which has been scoring critical raves since its premiere at the New York Film Festival, hits theaters in limited release on December 18. Our Toh! review is here. »

A new trailer for Spike Jonze’s “Her” shows how two actual women in the life of Joaquin Phoenix’s character react to the news that he’s dating a computer. Amy Adams plays a friendly acquaintance of Phoenix — a lonely, divorced writer. She is surprisingly accepting of his relationship with his operating system, Samantha, voiced by Scarlett Johansson. Rooney Mara plays his ex-wife, and she’s not nearly as cool with it.

A new trailer for Spike Jonze's Her captures some of the film's magic without ruining any of the hidden treats. Joaquin Phoenix stars as a lonely soul who is still getting over the dissolution of his marriage to Rooney Mara. He buys a new operating system with advanced artificial intelligence -- think Skynet in the Terminator movies, but without the impulse to stamp out humanity -- and falls in love with it / her, voiced by Scarlett Johansson. When it played at the New York Film Festival, our own Dustin Chang gave it a very positive review (linked below), but the premise sounded nuts to me, even if the story is set in the near future. But then I saw it at an advance screening...

Joaquin Phoenix plays Theodore in his new movie Her, where he’s fallen in love with the perfect girl, Samantha (voiced by Scarlett Johansson), but she is a computer. In fact, my favorite part of this new trailer is when he tells Amy (played by Amy Adams) that he’s dating an operating system. Her reaction is great. Check out the trailer below.

Her is the slightly futuristic tale of Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Phoenix), a man who falls in love with an advanced operating system (voiced by Scarlett Johansson). Johansson won the Best Actress award at the recent Rome Film Festival and has generated a fair amount of Oscar and Screen Actors Guild buzz - a feat even more impressive considering she's never actually seen in the movie (which has led to the Golden Globes ruling her out of their own competition).
The latest trailer, which you can watch below, was released today. Obviously aware of its critical applause thus far, there are lots of 'Official Selection' banners and favourable quotes from reviews. Think of it as the 'For Your Consideration' promo. Enjoy....

The story follows Theodore Twombly (Phoenix), 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 individual to each user.

Sooooo, you're crushing on the operating system of your phone? Well, you're in questionably good company! The newest trailer for Spike Jonze's "Her" gives us a good look at the difficulties of falling for the warm, understanding, sensual voice inside your pocket computer.
Is Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix) avoiding reality by deciding to "date" Samantha (Scarlett Johansson), a so-called "artificially intelligent operating system"? That's the opinion of his ex-wife (Rooney Mara), who snarks that he's always wanted a wife without all the messy bits. Theodore's best friend Amy (Amy Adams) is much more supportive, noting that "falling in love is kind of like a socially acceptable insanity." (We all need best friends to support our delusions and poor decision-making capabilities, don't we?)
Actually, it doesn't seem that hard at all to fall for Samantha, who is witty and empathetic and, somewhat like the Hal 9000, eager to find out what human »

A new trailer has arrived for Her, Spike Jonze’s romantic drama with a difference, as Joaquin Phoenix sets about falling in love with his Siri-esque operating system. In fairness to him, he has gone through something of a traumatic break-up with former wife Rooney Mara, and said operating system is voiced by Scarlett Johansson. It’s an odd premise but a surprisingly moving one, particularly given the tenderness of Phoenix’s performance, with award-season recognition already being touted… Take a look at the new trailer, below: ...

The bulk of reviews for Spike Jonze's new film, Her, remain under embargo, so we're just going to have to find a subtle way of suggesting that this is a film worth keeping an eye on. It features Scarlett Johansson and Joaquin Phoenix, with the latter playing a lonely, heartbroken man who strikes up a relationship with a computer operating system.
The new trailer for the film explains it a little better than we can, so we'll leave you with that. The film arrives in the UK on January 10th 2014, with Amy Adams, Rooney Mara and Olivia Wilde rounding out its cast.
