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....

Source: FameFlyNet Kristen Stewart headed out in La today with her signature shades and hat. She was first spotted at an La grocery store on Thanksgiving evening, grabbing a few last-minute items for Turkey Day. The actress was joined by a friend and looked comfy in her hoodie and jeans. She's been enjoying some low-key time in sunny Southern California after spending time in New York City to film her latest project Anesthesia. We saw Kristen last week out and about walking her dog in La and sporting some pretty cool flip-shade sunglasses. After holiday down time, Kristen will likely be back to work on her full schedule that includes The Big Shoe and the action comedy American Ultra. The later also stars her Adventureland costar Jessie Eisenberg. Source: FameFlyNet See the rest of the pictures below! »

Another product from the Duplass factory, after breaking out with the micro-budgeted SXSW preemed True Adolescents, Johnson remains in similar dramedy curriculum (read the descriptive journey here) with the help of lead off hitters in SNL’s Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader (they were a delicious combo in Adventureland) alongside thesps Ty Burrell, Luke Wilson and Boyd Holbrook.

Designer Ola Maslik (May in the Summer) in the Sundance alumni tech crew deck.

Kristen Stewart is taking a bite out of the Big Apple. Decked out in a cream-colored jacket and a green beanie, the 23-year-old actress was spotted shooting scenes for the upcoming independent flick Anesthesia in Manhattan on Monday, Nov. 4.

Following summer jobs at Adventureland in 2009, co-stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg are reuniting for a new movie called American Ultra. Mixing 30 Minutes or Less and Enemy of the State, the film will follow Eisenberg as a lazy stoner named Mike, living with his girlfriend Phoebe in a small, unexciting town. But suddenly, there's something to get Mike moving as his past catches up with him and he finds himself targeted by a government operation for termination. Sounds pretty outlandish, but with a script from Chronicle writer Max Landis, we're actually pretty interested to see how this one plays out. In addition, THR reports Project X director Nima Nourizadeh will be directing. It's interesting that both the writer and director had breakout films using found footage as a narrative element, but there's no indication that this film will utilize the same technique. However, producer Anthony Bregman (who has Enough Said »

In 2009, Greg Mottola’s 80s-set comedy-drama Adventureland saw the pairing of a young, relatively unknown Jesse Eisenberg, with a young, newly-recognisable Kristen Stewart. While she was learning to navigate the adulation wave of Twilight, which had been released the previous year, Adventureland would prove to be Eisenberg’s break-out role.
Well, what a difference four years makes. While Kristen Stewart has waved goodbye to Twilight’s Bella Swan, attempting to mix big budget (Snow White And The Huntsman) with independents (On The Road, The Runaways), Jesse Eisenberg has been strengthening his dramatic chops on films such as Zombieland, The Social Network, Now You See Me and the current festival favourite, The Double. And now, with experience under their belts and box office success to their names, Eisenberg and Stewart are to reunite for another adventure, in the shape of action-comedy, American Ultra.
