Great Where the Wild Things Are Poster Discovered!

Now this is a great poster! The guys over at the Spike Jonze Fan Blog have discovered the first poster for Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are movie, which Warner Brothers has currently set for release on October 16th. We still haven't seen anything besides a few early photos from this, but word is that the trailer will officially show in front of Monsters vs. Aliens in a few weeks, so stay tuned. I'm quite excited, because although there's been some reported troubles, all of that has only built up my expectations even more. So be sure to check out this new poster below and let us know your thoughts on Where the Wild Things Are.

Where the Wild Things Are

I'm a bit awe-struck by this design because Warner Brothers has finicky about this film for a while. It's supposed to be marketed towards kids, because it's a children's book, but because Speed Racer didn't hit with kids like they wanted, they're being more sensitive than before. But as is obvious from all the hype, adults are interested in this, too, and they've done a great job of capturing everyone's attention with this poster. There's both a deeper meaning and a bit of fun found on it, so bravo to whoever designed this! As a reminder, Where the Wild Things Are is Spike Jonze's adaptation of Maurice Sendak's beloved book.

  • Richard
    why is he screaming, looks weird.
  • David Wilson
    How does this movie get distribution and a date and TRICK R' TREAT can't even get a decent release or promotion???!?!!!
  • kindbuddy
    David Wilson ... you're kidding right?! ... I mean as much as I want to see Trick R Treat too I think this movie will be pretty big considering it was a old book for kids. I mean I'm anticipating both movies.
  • David Wilson
    @Kindbuddy I'm eager to see Where the Wild things are as well, I just needed to vent my anger on Trick R' Treat situation. I was referring to how this movie was pushed back, but was constantly marketed, but TRT was slated to come out 2 years ago in 2007 and we haven't heard anything about when it comes out. I love the childrens' book. I heard a rumor it's new release date is April 24, 2009. At least that's what imdb said.
  • Fisherr
    The poster looks scary a little bit.Nice one.
  • LW
    *cough*pedo-monster *cough*
  • FUCK YEAH! finally theres a poster
  • Matador
    awesome!! its going to be awesome!!
  • Dan W
    If anything this poster would scare kids who are not familiar with the book and why he is screaming. To an outsider it seems as though he's screaming because there is a huge hairy monster next to him
  • Dan W
    But I think it looks great and I am very excited for this movie.
  • No way, he looks like he's screaming for joy! If I was a kid, I'd look at that and be like "cool, I wanna scream, too!" Quirky things like that looked cool as a kid. He doesn't look scared at all, he looks like he's screaming for fun. Nothing wrong with that...
  • Screaming for fun, me too! I love the drawings in the books and Spike Jonze's work so I imagine the combo will be the business.
  • twispious
    this is going to be spectacular
  • littlegirl
    This poster makes me squeal like a little girl.
  • Shane
    Looks like the font from Judd Apatow's "Freaks and Geeks." Oh, and this looks awesome.
  • It's subtle, but it does look like he's screaming with joy...good catch, and an excellent poster for capturing that. I want to buy one so if anyone knows where please do tell (but I seriously doubt it as this is an uber secret fan find)
  • Fuelbot
    Just finished reading the script yesterday. This is gonna be amazing.
  • Trystan
    @Fuulbot You have the script? Where can I find it?! I would love to by that poster though, amazing.
  • Trystan
    @Trystan Damn you and your typos!
  • ebbie
    I think he's supposed to be roaring to suggest he's a Wild Thing, too. But I suppose if you've lived under a rock and don't know the story you might think he's screaming because he's about to be disemboweled by the monster beside him.
  • Lacey
    This is a great image! I'm so intrigued to see this!!!
  • Marc Giguere
    the poster is awkward. little kids will think he is screaming because there is a monster right behind him. i don't think people are going to get it.
  • zach
    i liked the book i'm sure everyone is going to go see this like everyone saw wall-e
  • ERivas
    "they've done a great job of capturing everyone's attention with this poster" I like to see the metrics you used to come this conclusion.....
  • Steven
    Man I love this poster
  • Fuelbot
    #24 - The whole point is that he's one of them. Not just one of them, but the King Of The WTs. What kid wouldn't want to be king of a nine foot monster?
  • 9001
    This poster has the same vibe as that Miyazaki film, minus the screaming.
