Scarlett Johansson is This Century’s Sexiest O/S

FishbowlNY was lucky enough to recently get a look at the first screened footage from Spike Jonze‘s upcoming feature drama Her. A pair of non-color corrected scenes were shown during the closing weekend of the Los Angeles Film Festival, as part of a Q&A hosted by Jonze’s very good friend David O. Russell.

Scarlett Johansson voices the near-future, artificially intelligent O/S installed by loner writer Theodore (Joaquin Phoenix). The first scene shown depicts their “meeting,” after he reads the manual and answers a few set-up questions; the second sequence showcases a chimeric beach conversation, via shirt-pocketed Smartphone.

Vanity Fair just chose “part-time Parisian” Johansson for the cover of their inaugural French edition. Get ready for a whole bunch more magazine cover ooh-la-la as the November Her release date gets closer.

It’s rather remarkable how sexy Johansson can remain even when all sight of her is removed from the screen. E.g., Siri has nothing on Scarlett. And just in case you were wondering, Jonze confirmed to an audience Q&A member that Johansson live-voiced her lines with Phoenix during the shoot, rather than the actor playing off a recording.
