Arcade Fire To Score Spike Jonze’s Her
Arcade Fire season is approaching quickly: As rumors abound about the band’s upcoming fourth record (due out in October, they told one lucky fan on Twitter) and its supposed name, news has broken that Arcade Fire has also scored the newest Spike Jonze film, Her, which hits theaters this November.
Her is a sci-fi romantic comedy that stars Joaquin Phoenix (long time no see!), Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde, and Scarlett Johansson as the voice of a super-intelligent computer operating system. The film, Jonze’s follow-up to his take on Maurice Sendak’s Where The Wild Things Are, is not the director’s first collaboration with the band: Where The Wild Things Are used Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up” in its trailer, and Jonze directed the short film/long-form music video for their 2010 release The Suburbs. This trailer features a new tune by Karen O called “The Moon Song,” which you can preview at the 1:37 mark.
Given their experience as collaborators, the film should be a comfortable fit. Check out the intriguing trailer below, and watch out for the credit: “Music by Arcade Fire.”
Her is out on 11/20 in limited release through Warner Brothers.
