Another Lovably Awesome Where the Wild Things Are Poster
Although we've already seen one poster and the entire trailer, that doesn't mean there aren't plenty more surprises to be seen from Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are. Yahoo has debuted the newest poster for the film and it's as adorable and brilliant as the first poster. I really just love the way these look, and how playful the whole thing is, capturing the very essence of the book in a way only Spike Jonze could. I would love to have both of these posters up on my walls, even if the movie doesn't turn out to be that great (even though I've got a feeling it will be pretty amazing), just because they're so wonderfully designed.
Based on Maurice Sendak's book, where Max, a disobedient little boy sent to bed without his supper, creates his own world--a forest inhabited by ferocious wild creatures that crown Max as their ruler.
Where the Wild Things Are is directed by visionary filmmaker Spike Jonze, of films like Being John Malkovich and Adaptation previously as well as numerous famous music videos as well. The screenplay was co-written by Spike Jonze and author Dave Eggers, a former Salon.com editor who also wrote Sam Mendes' Away We Go. This is based on Maurice Sendak's beloved children's book of the same name. Warner Brothers will finally bringing Where the Wild Things Are to theaters everywhere in October 16th.

I know a great trailer and poster doesn't make a great movie. But when all these things come along and they seem so perfect, it's a good sign.

Lovely, lovely, lovely... @10 - yeah, true up to a point. Overused for twee indie fluff (hey, art!), but at least there's some rhyme and reason for its use here.

#8, GREAT CALL. If everyone at the studio was on top of their game(which it seems at this point), they should/would TOTALLY do that. Amazing idea. Can't wait for this flick...
