Where the Wild Things Are Trailer

Warner Brothers has debuted another full length trailer for Where the Wild Things Are today on Yahoo. As you already know, this stars Max Records as Max as well as Catherine Keener and Mark Ruffalo, and features the voices of James Gandolfini, Catherine O'Hara, Forest Whitaker, Paul Dano, and Tom Noonan. I really can't say enough good things about this - it looks wonderful, like one of the best movies left this year. We've already featured one trailer for this back in March and a featurette from Comic-Con as well, but this is best trailer yet, without a doubt. Even if you're not really that interested, you still need to see this trailer!

Watch the second full trailer for Where the Wild Things Are:

ray on Aug 6, 2009


Doesn't impress me at all.

robert on Aug 6, 2009


Best part for me is still the song

Cody on Aug 6, 2009


I never cared for the book, and I just can't understand what all the fuss is about this movie. People are literally flipping out and going crazy over how good these trailers are, and I just don't get it.

Rorschach90 on Aug 6, 2009


I'm actually looking forward to this movie more than Avatar now.

Dylan on Aug 6, 2009


I shed a tear. This looks amazing.

PJ H on Aug 6, 2009


Wow. Im 7 years old again.

JimD on Aug 6, 2009


The third time footage of this movie has made me cry. I absolutely can't wait for this movie.

felix on Aug 6, 2009


anybody know the name of the song?

Jeff on Aug 6, 2009


Still in love with this movie. As you guys mentioned on the Most Anticipated Movies of 2009, this film is really touching and fills me with old memories.

Alex on Aug 6, 2009


#10 You have no soul.

Jimmy on Aug 6, 2009


#15 Jeff its Arcade Fire's Wake Up but the Acoustic is hard to find!

Xerxex on Aug 6, 2009


@10 I dont know how old you are, but when I was a kid this book was insanely popular. I loved it so much Id sometimes carry it to bed..reading and flipping through the pages. I think for many kids they didnt neccessarily pickup on the deeper story. It was probably the illustrations in the book that initially caught your attention. The imagery of the secret place, your room turning into a forrest, all the beasts. The illustrations in the book along with the story just stoked any kids imagination. Like a memorable song these trailers invoke all sorts of childhood memories.

JimD on Aug 6, 2009


Amen, JimD.

Jake on Aug 6, 2009


Um... #s 8 and 10 you have no soul or childhood do you???

Nick on Aug 6, 2009


#8 and #10...I think they're parents used to roll up the book and slap them to sleep every night with it. Hence their comments. Beautiful trailer by the way.

MaX on Aug 6, 2009


@#21 i think #8 & #10 still gets the rolled up books hence they're that... nice! definitely will watch it... will torrent it for my son for him to watch when he's old enough (he's just 6months now)... LOL

miracle disease on Aug 6, 2009


My eyes are misty. I read this book to my 4 year old son at night. We will see this together, and we will feel warm inside.

Mark Drennan on Aug 6, 2009


looks REALLY well made

riva on Aug 6, 2009


Awesome ... Nuff said !

Fenris on Aug 6, 2009


This trailer gives me such a warm and fuzzy feeling inside (not to mention the lip quiver and teary eyes) that I wanna run and buy the DVD right now. It's not even in theaters yet, and I am already absolutely sure that this will become one of my favorite movies of all times. Mmm, bittersweet childhood memories.<3

SuicidalOptimist on Aug 6, 2009


#17 I've read that the acoustic version used a lot in the last trailer is one recorded for the film itself so hopefully once the soundtrack makes it's way it that version of Wake Up will be on there.

Jeff on Aug 6, 2009


REALLY looking forward to this!

Jay on Aug 6, 2009


This looks so good. I don't think I've ever watched trailers for a movie as much as I have for this movie...I just watch them over and over again...they make me so happy.

Kevin on Aug 6, 2009



1001 on Aug 6, 2009


At the very least, this will be the year's most visually fascinating movie. But from the looks of this trailer, it will be so much more than that. I can't wait. October is shaping up to be a pretty great month for movies, especially family films, what with the re-release of Toy Story 1 and 2.

Jonathan on Aug 6, 2009


I shed tears every time I watch one of these trailers. This one's not as well-produced as the last (the audio is lousy) but it's great to see more of the movie.

mat on Aug 6, 2009


Chiming in with my "Absolutely can't wait for this" also. Love the fact that Sendak and Jonze are on the same page with it, too. Sendak's a big fan of his interpretation. Btw, I get why some may not like this, maybe it's just not their thing, but I don't get the "Doesn't impress me at all" comment by 8. It's a faithful, respectful, interpretation (as I say, even according to the Author) of a world renowned children's book that also, from the trailer at least, appeals to adults. It's also illiciting a significant number of positive comments on here which doesn't happen often. Even if you don't like it, that is a somewhat impressive feat. What on earth does impress you then?

PxlPusher on Aug 6, 2009


seriously, the trailers give me a warm fuzzy feeling. im so excited to watch this!

giraffic on Aug 6, 2009


The visuals are AWESOME! How can it not impress #8?!

Korm on Aug 6, 2009


Can you say, "Movie of the Year Oscar Potential?"

Chris W on Aug 6, 2009


Cannot wait to experience this movie

Nick Sears on Aug 6, 2009


Looks kinda cheap for me. I must say i did love this trailer more then firstone, but still. I might rent it once, but it doesn't look that much to me now. Maybe because i never read the books or so, that i'm missing something.

box3r on Aug 6, 2009


You can find the song on youtube here for now if you find it for download please let me know

Terry the saint on Aug 6, 2009


guys, everytime I see one of these trailers I get the strangest fuzzy feeling in my butt and tears in my eyes, how about you?

brat on Aug 6, 2009


And the reason why this trailer looks so great is that even in 2 minutes and 30 seconds, it still shows us how far apart from being children we really are. And the song is perfect as well. "The children, get older, the bodies get bigger but, their hearts, get colder." Too true of many of us. 🙁 Sadly.

danielvutran on Aug 7, 2009


The movie looks well made. I remember reading the books when I was little, but not at all what they were about. I have a terrible memory. 🙁

Sabes on Aug 7, 2009


I am not merely excited for this film, I am not merely loving what I see. There is something here that cannot truly be described. In these troubled times, it feels so warming, so calming, so pure to slip back into a childhood we all once knew. Like wrapping up in a warm blanket in winter, this films will prove that it is a cozy place to rest the soul, if only for a few hours. Even if the film does not deliver past what the trailer has shown us, there is still that sacred glimpse of what we all once held so close to us. Everyone remembers those times when you were a child when you were totally lost in your imagination, playing on the carpet, but seeing and feeling a world that belonged only to you. A perfect world that is as far from the real world as you could make it. To all of the naysayers, I am unfathomably and profoundly sorry that you cannot feel the same literal magic that the rest of us feel. Your lives are duller for not being part of this, and as I said, I am sorry for you. To the rest of you, spread the word about this film so it gets the recognition it deserves. This film will save the newest generation of children from the tidal floods of garbage entertainment. Cherish this, everybody, because nobody knows when this sort of treasure will appear again.

Angry Chief on Aug 7, 2009


Two thoughts: 1. The short little snippets we see of the interaction between the mother (Catherine Keener) and Max feel so warm and genuine. Keener may not be the star of the film, but she is acting gold in my opinion. Every role I see her in feels real. Honestly, I feel it will be the exploration of the mother-son relationship in this film that will really affect me (in a good way). 2. Love the PG rating. I knew it would be PG a long time ago but I just really really appreciate it. And more so, I appreciate everyone's comments and enthusiasm here for a film that is going to be rated for kids but obviously will appeal to us adults. It shows that great clean material, I mean really solid heartfelt material, can be made into a fantastic film in the right hands. Jonze shows fantastic restraint by not making this a movie for him or even the fans, but for the ideas it contains...ideas that are rating-less 🙂

Taylor on Aug 7, 2009


#39 If you havent read the book (which is extremely short btw) then you dont really know what you are looking at. Spike's look at the book nd characters are exactly how the artist render's them.

L on Aug 7, 2009


Gave me chills

robert on Aug 7, 2009


looks super lame. a movie for emos..

Sho on Aug 7, 2009


#48 if this were a movie for emos, I'm absolutely POSITIVELY sure that you would be super excited because the only people that I see thinking this movie will be lame is someone who is an insult away from cutting their wrists.

Nick on Aug 7, 2009


I can't wait to see this but I thought Del Toro would be the wild thing that hangs with Max through the whole movie not Gandolfini. I have nothing against him but I prefer to listen to Del Toro. Minor bummer.

Johnny Neat on Aug 7, 2009


#49 Haha!

Matt on Aug 7, 2009


Firstly, all those making outright claims against this movies apparent greatness are trolls. Don't pay them any notice. Secondly, #50, are you talking about Guillermo Del Toro?! Really? He has a ridiculously thick Spanish accent! What are you talking about?! Haha

C'mon on Aug 7, 2009


@#52 I'm pretty sure he was talking about Benicio Del Toro... Don't worry I always mix them up too. Also @#50, I think Gandolfini is a better actor than Del Toro. Although his voice may not sound as cool, he has more skillz.

BVDR on Aug 7, 2009


This trailer gave me chills.

Cianan on Aug 7, 2009


if the film turns out half as amazing as this trailer, i'll be happy

twispious on Aug 7, 2009


looks good...I never read the book

Trey on Aug 7, 2009


For some reason I really dont want to see this movie..

Zack on Aug 7, 2009


Looks beautiful

Vold on Aug 7, 2009


Not going to miss this. Can't wait to take my son. His eyes were glued to the trailer. We'll both be in the theater with wide eyed, and jaws on the floor.

nate on Aug 7, 2009


Beautiful and it's purely amazing Jonze's clear vision of the book. It sickens me the trash they call children's movies now a days. This will hopefully show other filmmaker's what it's really about to make a beloved children's movie that will live on in our hearts as we age. The Arcade Fire song was a great choice by the way. 🙂

Caitie on Aug 7, 2009


well, it looks amazing. unfortunately, the celebrity voices kill it - esp. tony soprano [james gandolfini]. they should've gone with unknowns - or lesser known voice casting.

joe on Aug 7, 2009


#61 I understand that complaint, but the actors playing the Wild Things grew up with the book and probably jumped at the chance to play a wild thing.

Xerxex on Aug 7, 2009


this trailer gave 3 people the chills made 5 people warm made 4 people cry and made #41 gain a fuzzy feeling in his ass now that's what i call movie magic 😉

DoomCanoe on Aug 7, 2009


Cant wait to watch this. Looks really awesome.

moviejoe on Aug 7, 2009


could a movie look any better? any more true? I can't wait. that trailer gave me chills too.

dave13 on Aug 8, 2009


teaser was better. but i'm still looking forward to it 🙂

marcos on Aug 8, 2009


Absolutely gorgeous. So can not wait.

#68 just revealed himself to either/any/all: a) be from 4chan b) a moron c) someone who doesn't enjoy movies d) an even larger moron

Angry Chief on Aug 8, 2009


I agree with 68, although I can express my opinions like I'm more than 10 years old. Movie = brutal. The book was lame, my imagination kicked the book's ass when I was little. No appeal, I had way cooler things to imagine about than some stupid jungle. I have no emotional attachment. Sure, the book apparently grabbed a lot of attention and the author did a damn good job. Many of you today realize that your life is filled with a lack of fulfillment, so I can completely understand your feeling of wanting to be little, filled with hope and dreams. I'm twenty, and still push for mine. I really don't see this whole emotional pull thing. I was shot in the face with The Underdog, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Rocky and Bullwinkle. So right now I'm still holding onto the Smurfs, and I haven't seen GI Joe yet (please be good). I hope you can see why I would be miffed at the movie representations of some of my childhood icons. Hopefully you all can enjoy this movie, and it doesn't stomp on your heart like The Underdog did to me!

Dude on Aug 9, 2009


Dude Underdog reeked of fail when it was first announced, as for Alvin and the Chipmunks that was a let down, Rock and Bullwinkle was a kick in the balls, as for the Smurfs meh, but if you didn't like the novel perhaps the film will let your imagnation relax, and let you enjoy it! Jo why? why come here after nearly everybody has praised the trailer and bash hte ever living outta of it? Don't like it then don't click the trailer, don't read about it, and don't go and see it, that seems easier than typing negative comments with caps-lock on.

Xerxex on Aug 9, 2009


This movie does not look very good at all. I don't know why everyone is freaking out about this movie just because it is visually awesome... And anyways what is so awesome about a bunch of weird looking oversized stuffed animals running around with a kid in a costume?

The awesome dude on Aug 9, 2009


Xerxex, you are my new internet best friend.

Angry Chief on Aug 9, 2009


@73 B.F.F.F?

Xerxex on Aug 10, 2009


@ #44 you should be a writer! I got teary reading your comment! Cant wait! If you go to see this at the theatres, ill be the one crying the loudest.

george on Aug 10, 2009


I can already see a buch of late teenagers, to late 40 year old people in theaters, and maybe one or two little kids!

Xerxex on Aug 10, 2009


I saw a brief preview about a year ago and I got all choked up. Then the first trailer came out and I absolutely cried (even with the second trailer) My 9 yo is so excited to see this movie, she has read the book a hundred times since she's been little. I am super excited to see this movie cause I loved the book as much as she did. This is gonna be one of the greatest kids (family) movies this year. I hope it wins a lot of awards come next years award season. OH and BTW the Arcade Fire song fits so well

Felicity on Sep 5, 2009


I feel sorry for the people who don't feel the child still inside them. They have lost the magic in the world. It was one of my children's favorite books and I'm so looking forward to taking my grandson to see this movie!

Barbara on Oct 11, 2009


so awsome and sad=c

angelina on Oct 16, 2009
