Between majestic hot springs and the belief that elves roam the countryside, it’s a destination you’ll likely want to return to again and again in your dreams if you’re lucky enough to visit.

Raise your hand if you can’t wait to see Joaquin Phoenix fall in love with a mysterious “operating system,” voiced by the silky notes of Scarlett Johansson!

Her, Spike Jonze‘s story of an unlikely relationship between a man and his machine, hits theaters today, promising gorgeous, sun-soaked shots and lots of Joaquin smiles.
While you were sleeping, Beyoncé unleashed a cascade of sexiness in the form of a 14 song, 17 video “visual album.” Her self-titled fifth LP–released in full with zero promotion–follows husband Jay Z‘s 2013 mantra #newrules and has had us–and Parks and Recreation‘s Retta!–bugging ever since it landed on iTunes early Friday.
