Last year, we did Atlanta screenings for 38 movies, and received hundreds of entries from our readers. It’s so great to get up in front of an audience at one of our screenings, plug the site for people who don’t know it, and when I say “Collider.com”, our readers cheer. We’re going to keep doing screenings in 2014, and we’re hitting the ground running with one of the best films of 2013, Her. The movie had a limited release in New York and L.A., and is now expanding to other cities. I’ve been recommending this film non-stop (here’s my full review), and I can’t wait for more people to see it.
I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of Her. Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free. The film stars Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde, and Scarlett Johansson. Her opens wide on January 10th.
To enter for a chance to win a pass for you and a guest, send an e-mail to Collider.Passes@gmail.com with the subject line “HER”. The screening is on Tuesday, January 7th at 7:30pm at Regal Atlantic Station, so don’t enter if you think you’ll be unavailable. Please note that a pass is not a ticket. To guarantee a seat, please arrive at the theater early since seating is first come, first serve.
In case you haven’t seen it, here’s the trailer:
And here’s the official synopsis for Her:
Set in Los Angeles, in the near future, “Her” follows Theodore Twombly (Joaquin 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 an intuitive and unique entity in its own right. Upon initiating it, he is delighted to meet “Samantha,” a bright, female voice (Scarlett Johansson) who is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny. As her needs and desires grow in tandem with his own, their friendship deepens into an eventual love for each other. From the singular perspective of Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Spike Jonze comes “Her,” an original love story that explores the evolving nature—and the risks—of intimacy in the modern world.
