Must Watch: Wonderful Where the Wild Things Are Featurette
One of the best presentations I saw yesterday at Comic-Con was for Where the Wild Things Are Featurette. The panel kicked off with this short featurette and included a brief appearance by the movie's young star (seen above), aptly named Max Records, who gave a hilarious speech. Anyway, the other scenes we were shown were wonderful as well, but this featurette, which also has the book's original author Maurice Sendak talking about working with Spike Jonze, really set the tone. If you thought that teaser trailer looked great or are even still hesitant about this, I suggest you watch this featurette, it's wonderful.

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.
