Where the Wild Things Are Teaser Trailer

Snowball fights? Piggyback rides? Howling? Big furry monsters? Yep, all that and more is in this first teaser trailer for Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are. There isn't much dialogue, just a little bit at the beginning, but the rest of this trailer is still amazing. It looks like an imaginative, fun, and wild kid's movie that adults will fall in love with, too. I've got such high hopes for Where the Wild Things Are, despite all the problems we heard about over the last few years. And from this trailer, it looks like Spike Jonze has created the newest soon-to-be classic kid's movie, right up there with The Goonies and The NeverEnding Story.

OMG OMG OMG, Looks fantastic!! I didn't want to wake you, but I want to show you something...

Homero on Mar 25, 2009


This looks amazing. Can't wait.

Henry Jones Sr. on Mar 25, 2009


loved it... welcome back spike

avant576 on Mar 25, 2009


HOLY SHIT. That was mind blowing. Spikes cinetmatic translation of the book is startling. This trailer NEEDS to be in HD my god lol I think spike has cemented himself as one of my favorite directors now...

buddistwisdom7 on Mar 25, 2009


I am soooo excited about this one, more so than Avatar to be honest. this looks brilliant!

Atomic Popcorn on Mar 25, 2009


spike jonez is so racist

Jont on Mar 25, 2009


The footage looks good, but I admit I don't like the music at all. Feels too hippy-ish or like a commercial for a social networking site.

ebbie on Mar 25, 2009


That Arcade Fire-song sold me, great trailer and the footage looks good.

Drama on Mar 25, 2009


The music is The Arcade Fire and I think it fits this trailer perfectly.

ejedj on Mar 25, 2009


High hopes! Reminded me of good-ole 80's fantasy movies as a kid. And I liked the music, too. A bit quirky and off-beat.

Aaron on Mar 25, 2009


Fantastic teaser. Thanks. Finally, I have a must for this year. The other stuff looks fine, but this seems to be the real deal.

Mario Tenorio on Mar 25, 2009


I'm so there. Looks great!

Nick Sears on Mar 25, 2009


That was definitely worth the wait! Holy crap!

BC on Mar 25, 2009


I just hope the visuals are as great as the trailer suggests it to be. I was so disappointed in the visuals of Bridge to Terabithia, a total marketing hype in the packaging and Tv spots and nothing more. It was like less than 10 mins of the mythical world when I was expecting at least 3/4 of the movie to be in that world. I'm hoping this has more visuals than Spiderwick Chronicles.

Alan on Mar 25, 2009


AWESOME!!! Instant classi! That trailer was absolutely perfect!

Scott McHenry on Mar 25, 2009


AWESOME!!! Instant classic! That trailer was absolutely perfect!

Scott McHenry on Mar 25, 2009


oh em god. this was my favorite book as a child. i even went to a concert for one of my favorite bands, and the tour was called "the young wild things tour." but i digress, i can't wait to see this in theaters.! 😀 <3456789

angela on Mar 25, 2009


very very good. classic writting all over it

DOGG69 on Mar 25, 2009


There are no words, FANTASTIC.

Lexie on Mar 25, 2009


wtf is this piece of shit?

wtf on Mar 25, 2009


can't wait for Spikey J fun. comment 6 what are you on about you arse.

Aaron Holland on Mar 25, 2009


With a re-worked version of "Wake Up" to reboot. Looks great, just wish the trailer was better quality and less spastic.

Timothy on Mar 25, 2009


i've heard of the story,seen pictures but never read the book but from this trailer it looks pretty fucking i'm looking forward to this one.

zetsu on Mar 25, 2009


I want one!

BLM on Mar 25, 2009


the music in this trailer won't be in the film

rocken on Mar 25, 2009


This seriously looks like best of the year material like, absolute instant classic material.

Timothy on Mar 25, 2009


Wow, I can't wait. This was one of my favorite books when I was kid. It'll be awesome. It'll be great going to see that on a weekend afternoon with a bunch of kids. lol I'll fit right in!

Hey Ya on Mar 25, 2009


Beautiful. Truly beautiful.

Ajax on Mar 25, 2009


I'm very surprised by all the awesome, amazing, wow comments. I thought that was a crappy trailer. What was so amazing about that trailer? Didn't do anything for me.

K on Mar 25, 2009


Looks awesome. I saw some early footage over a year ago, but this blows it away. Love me some Spike Jonze.

TylerTheVideoGuy on Mar 25, 2009


love it.

biznatch on Mar 25, 2009


How close to Titanic will it get? Will it rise above Dark Knight? It has the possibility to blend all quandrants and over take any other book series (Harry Potter/Twilight/Lord of the Rings). It will all depend on the marketing, word of mouth, and positive vs negative press.

Warren J on Mar 25, 2009


Finally a book remade from my childhood that I remember well. Very very excited, and I almost want to cry because I'm not a kid anymore and have to deal with debt >..<

Matthew on Mar 25, 2009


OMG this looks fucking amazing I cant wait to see it; this was one of my favorite books as a kid

Del on Mar 25, 2009


I really think this trailer is one of the most perfectly crafted trailers released in recent years. It's the perfect glimpse at the movie – which I'm also pretty sure will be an instant classic. What's really, really impressive is that Dave Eggers and Spike Jonze completely "get" this story – on the level that kids intrinsically "get" it. It's an emotional journey, a whilrlwind of all the savage and wild emotions we experience as a kid. The Wild Things are the physical incarnation of that, brought to being by a kid's imagination. If the movie even reaches a tenth of it's potential, then it will be a momentous, honest, true tribute to childhood and the power of imagination. Could easily be the best "children's movie" since "The Never-ending Story," "E.T.," and "The Goonies.

Daniel on Mar 25, 2009


All of the production rumors had me worried about this, but this trailer gives me a lot of faith. I just hope they don't massacre the first piece of literature that played a part in making me who I am today.

peloquin on Mar 25, 2009


Ruffalo is in this too! How'd that casting announcement slip past me these past couple years? He's one of my favorite actors so I know he'll make this something special.

peloquin on Mar 25, 2009


Wow, I'm quite impressed by that! I think its gonna be a hit.

Richard on Mar 25, 2009


Yuck. Very unimpressed. Very mixed feelings because on one hand there is this endearing feeling that comes from the way this was shot, but on the other hand, this story deserved a truly cinematic vision which it clearly didn't get. We'll see.

Marty Martin - IMAGEN Films on Mar 25, 2009


Looks great. But it looked kinda dark in parts. Not in subject matter, actual lighting. But I presume it's part of the story, that darkness before dawn. It looks like the reality parts with his mom and the teacher who is dating his mom will be a drag.

Greedo the Rodian on Mar 25, 2009


Man this movie is going to be a tough sell. It's going to depend heavily on word of mouth. Working with families and kids on a regular basis I can tell you that it's going to depend on one thing....."Are the Monsters Scary / Did it scare your kid?" The movie can totally suck, but if the monsters aren't scary parents will still take their kids to see it just because it's a kids movie. But even if it's a fantastic movie.....parents will avoid it like the plague if it will scare their children because one movie is not worth months of crying before bed. And based on that preview and what I know about child development....those monsters fit the profile of too scary for most under the age of 10, because with kids that young appearance is going to matter more than their actual nature in character, especially since it's not animated. They're big, their unhuman, yet they have a realistic look to them....that's bad news for little ones. With that said I'm sure this movie will still make a decent amount of money, and I think it looks great, but when the majority of your market is children and families that may be too afraid to actually see the movie it's too bad, because this could be a major hit. And as much as I'm excited to see it in live action, as far as it being a children's book made for children.....this should have been made as a CGI film.

ImaginaryVisionary on Mar 25, 2009


looks great, i cant wait to see it

Derek on Mar 25, 2009


Wonderfully Amazing & beautiful !!!!!! Love this ...

Florian on Mar 25, 2009


Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers is all I need to hear. Alex, it's worth noting that Eggers is most famous for his book A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. Highly recommended. @WarrenJ You are dreaming. The box office will not come close to any of those, in my opinion.

Norm Schrager // Meet In the lobby on Mar 25, 2009


I want to go to there.

El Guapo on Mar 25, 2009


# 42 sounds like a movie executive from Warner Brothers and I'm guessing that's the reason why this film has been in producion hell. It's tough to market something like this to kids and adults so they should have just went one direction or the other. Hopefully trying for both won't leave us with a half assed childrens story and a half assed adult themed story (kinda like a cell phone camera).

peloquin on Mar 25, 2009


42, those monsters look scary and i'm in my 30s! Not pee-in-your-pants scary, but very lifelike. I read in Jonze's interview that he wanted them to have a sense of weight to them and they do, comical stuff like a Wild Thing hitting the side of a cliff is funny, but it'll also signal how dangerous these things can be. But I would take my kid, if I had one.

Greedo the Rodian on Mar 25, 2009


That was wonderful and Karen O is doing the music! =D

PJ H on Mar 25, 2009


By the way, are the monsters just actors in costumes or is there an element of CG to them?

peloquin on Mar 25, 2009


ImaginaryVisionary - You're probably absolutely right – and Spike Jonze has been telling the studio, from the beginning, that “I don’t think this is gonna be a movie for four-year-olds.” And while Max Records was around nine-years-old while filming (the character Max was aged up from 4-5, as it appears in the book), I'm going to guess personally the best age range for kids in the audience should be 7-14. Any younger and you're right, things are going to get scary – that, and the story itself is a bit more dark, more emotionally mature. Some kids can handle it, to be sure, but as a guideline I'd stay away from kids younger than 6 or 7 seeing it. There's a lot of emotional stuff in the story, a lot of darker ideas, and I think Spike Jonze wanted to embody these in the Wild Things. This was, for one reason, why he made the movie so realistic - and also why he preferred live-action to CGI. "I wanted them to actually be there. I think as a kid I wouldn't imagine it as a cartoon. I would imagine they were in my world. There's a danger with Max being there on a real location. Dangerous and exciting." – Spike Jonze

Daniel on Mar 25, 2009


Peloquin (#49) – The Wild Things suits were designed by the Jim Henson Company, but the Things' faces facial expessions will be CGI composited in by the effects company Framestore. Almost every single shot of the movie had to be rotoscoped and have some CGI element composited in, apparently. (Hence, probably why it has been in production hell for so long – that takes a long time!)

Daniel on Mar 25, 2009


These are still not as scary as the Skeksis from The Dark Crystal, and I loved that movie as a kid.

Greedo the Rodian on Mar 25, 2009


"spike jonez is so racist" - That's Spike LEE! Your thinking of.

Shaun on Mar 25, 2009


I'm SO glad he's using (mostly) non-CGI Wild Things!!!!

Aaron on Mar 25, 2009


looks great!

Trey on Mar 25, 2009


wow, looks really good. I love the arcade fire music, a new version of "wake-up" love it!!!!

TJ on Mar 25, 2009


Daniel, that was a very descriptive answer and a cinephile like me can appreciate the obsession of knowing the details of how the creatures were created. Thanks for the thorough response.

peloquin on Mar 25, 2009


@40 "this story deserved a truly cinematic vision which it clearly didn't get." Looking at your site, I doubt you would know true cinematic vision if it rolled up on 22's and asked you to produce their low-budget hip-hop video. Next.

Nick on Mar 25, 2009


That was some of the stupidest shit I've ever seen thrown into a trailer.

Parker on Mar 25, 2009


The First chord of Arcade Fire sold me. That music completely suits this movie. Can't. Wait.

martini on Mar 25, 2009


Wow! I'm impressed!

Kal-El on Mar 25, 2009


gotta love Spike.

Al on Mar 25, 2009


Wow... couldn't help but smile. This totally brightened my day and I can't wait to see the rest...

MissHQ on Mar 25, 2009


Oh my god - WONDERFUL!

Ryderup on Mar 25, 2009


The story could be bad. The CG could look bad. I don't know. The trailer, however, is beautiful, and the acting looks promising.

DogChasingCars on Mar 25, 2009


didn't spike jonze direct Jackass? or is that a different Spike Jonze?

chris vu on Mar 25, 2009


I think he just produced Jackass, being a former skater or something.

Greedo the Rodian on Mar 25, 2009


#7 ARCADE FIRE???? ARE YOU KIDDING....great song! Great VERSION of the song! GREAT TRAILER ! ! ! !

garrett on Mar 25, 2009


could be good at sundance fest or sxsw. got a useless indy feel to it. 3 out of 10 for the trailer anyway.

bassbin on Mar 25, 2009


Well there it is "Where The Wild Things Are", trailer. cool.

xerxex on Mar 25, 2009


That was enough to see to make me go and sit through the whole film. I don't need to see any additional extras and will avoid looking at anymore things to do with the film, I want to get sucked into that world! Reminded me a little of Totoro, I liked how his fur seemed all greasy and grubby like in the books. Elemnets of the movement looked funny, but I think it was a quirkyness rather than something smoothly polished. Really can't wait for this.

Crapola on Mar 25, 2009


Movie *looks* great, but this trailer is terrible. I love the arcade fire , but this isn't about them. It's about this wonderfully atmospheric/imaginative book. I feel something more natural featuring only this beautiful world he's built....with only sound effects (think Terrence Malick) would have been amazing. My fear is that this might be a two hour music video featuring indie music and "Wild Things".

modul8tr on Mar 25, 2009



Daniel on Mar 25, 2009


Those wild things are crazy yo, throwing snowballs and other wild things, hitting cliffs. AH-ROOOOOOO

Orangutang on Mar 25, 2009


it looked ok, but the 'action bits' with the monsters running and falling just looked totally stupid! I mean, i know it's a guy in a monster suit, so maybe it's best NOT to draw attention to it? Looked no better than Fraggle Rock (!) or Power Rangers. The rest looked great and i am excited, maybe in the context of the full film it will work, in the trailer, they just looked like jiggily fake monster suits in places 🙁

chris on Mar 25, 2009


hell yeah!

therevdoc on Mar 25, 2009


Sweet. Just sweet.

DoomCanoe on Mar 25, 2009


Normally, I'm a cranky old coot who is pessimistic and suspicious about every trailer I see. But I honestly just wet myself in excitement. Fucking looks incredible.

Krug on Mar 25, 2009


I loved the book as a kid, and this amazing and tons of fun, I can't wait to see it. I can already see this as being a buy on dvd. So, yeah, I'm excited, I think anyone who sees this and has read the book wil turn back into a kid as they watch it.

The Kid on Mar 25, 2009


This looks sooooo cool! I remember the book from when I was a kid, not well, but the imagery has always stuck with me. Can't wait to see this one

Rick on Mar 25, 2009


cool, now i know why I'm still in tune with my inner child!

xerxex on Mar 25, 2009


#40, with work like yours I wouldnt just say anything... really, just dont say anything. really.. this trailer is amazing! One fo the best trailers out in a long time.

Tom on Mar 25, 2009


#46 FTW with the 30 Rock reference!

Arp on Mar 25, 2009


F-ING AMAZING, and #40 your a dumbass, and 67, and 68, that spike jonze is a different guy, not the one who is doing this film

Bo on Mar 25, 2009


#40 Oh, I forgot...Someone didn't 'get-it'? Joke of the day ha-ha-ha

m4st4 on Mar 25, 2009


#91 No. That is the same Spike, he´s a producer of jackass, he is even in the movie, in jackass 2, he is the old lady that shows her boobs accidentally.

Mario Tenorio on Mar 26, 2009

i loved the book as a kid n now i want to see the movie

hd trailer:

haag on Mar 26, 2009


EPIC FAIL!!!!!!!!! hahah..... there is so much hype to this movie, just like Watchmen. If this movie fails it would truly suck. But I have high hopes myself. PLEASE for the love of the Monsters, hope this movie doesn't end up like The DaVinci Code, Watchmen, Indy Jones 4 etc.

Mike Balrog on Mar 26, 2009


Looks like ass. Big dopy monster suits flopping around...some poor bastard whose parents don't give him enough love and attention...the love of a monster that will have to end by the time the story climaxes and the child reconciles with the parents. Boo hoo fucking hoo! Stay a child! Stay wild! Screw this. Now, if one of the monsters starts to hump the kid’s leg like a dog in heat, I'm in the front row. Especially if that happy-go-lucky shit song by Fire Arcade is playing during the heinous act.

Jimmy Pniss on Mar 26, 2009


Crazy monster antics...running naked through the forest, chucking snowballs and humans, watching the ocean. Holy shit! I'm going wild! I want some guys dressed up in stupid monster suits to go wild with me. Maybe slap my ass or something like that after hurling my naked body into the side of a cliff. Then come over and stomp or sit their big hairy asses on my freaking face.

Carly Oh on Mar 26, 2009


I may be off base here, but this isn't just a current day kids movie. It is also a movie for those people who grew up reading this book. I feel that this will help it gain an audience even if the monster do look scary because there is such support for the book from those of us who read it as a child. Also, in many cases people with children who have read the book already will surely bring their children to see it because of the fondness they have for the book. Just watching this trailer reminds me of being a kid and reading this book. So what if the monsters are a bit scary this looks awesome and I think it will do very well and be a good movie based upon the trailer and the quality that the film looks to be.

Shootah! on Mar 26, 2009


I like the idea of making a movie on this book, but the costumes look really sucky. And I dont need to see a movie about a book I liked if it is going to look like a Saturday afternoon PBS special being shown on a movie screen. I see this movie being lampooned on Mystery Science Theater 3000!

cinema buff on Mar 26, 2009


WOW! great trailer, I'm sold to that movie.

Emmanuel on Mar 26, 2009


I am speechless. It just looks amazing and all the haters can just go fly a kite cause they have no idea what they are looking at. I am so exited about this movie!!!!!!!!

Tomi Lahdesmaki on Mar 26, 2009


Looks like a great movie!! They certainly look at a lot like H.R. Puffnstuff 😉

Kevin on Mar 26, 2009


Ok, I think #6 is getting Spike Lee and Spike Jonze confused or something. Why are there so many "fans" of Jonze? All he's done is music videos. Anyways, this trailer looks alright. Definitely looks better than all the other kids movies that are coming out.

Syphous on Mar 26, 2009


#105 is right but who is to say i am not taking a shot at that idiot knicks fan = )

Jont on Mar 26, 2009


#97: Shut up!!! Having too much expectations makes you a dumb douche!!!

Roy on Mar 26, 2009


Not sure if I'm sold on the trailer, visually. I think my desire to see this has more to do with what the trailer tags stated... Hope. Fear. Adventure. In our economy, and the state of the nation, I think every *adult* can understand that. It made my hair stand on end, and it made my eyes tear up. Maybe I'm just sentimental because my life is the crapper and I had two of these that I read to my daughter when she was little. So, the trailer definitely gets points for evocation or visceral response. Kudos to Jonze and I hope he has a winner...

sugarbaby on Mar 26, 2009


#80 Stabmaster. the fact that you used the term "emoticon" makes you a bigger nerd and more of a loser probably than anyone here.

the funny man on Mar 26, 2009


Spike is really back.

Fisherr on Mar 27, 2009


I can't wait for this to come out in the Fall! It seems as if I've been waiting a long time for it to come out!

MaryBeth_HP7 on Mar 27, 2009


When he's running you can totaly see the sport team mascot nature of the suit. =P Don't think it will detract from the story though.. Sounds interesting.

Dating in Toronto on Mar 27, 2009


it looks amazing!!! and it has Mark Ruffalo in it! Can't wait 🙂

F.C. on Mar 27, 2009



Nick S. on Mar 27, 2009


Enough!,#20, #60, #97, #98. And #98 you have more issues in those words then I can count on my hands and toes, you really need a good anti-phycotic. First off, this is a book that has been around for at minimum a decade, this will be more then just the trailer. Second off, the trailor only hints to a possible story, it doesn't explain it or even use hardly any script or plot with hardly any words. I am all for it, and I hope to its good enough to get in my books. When you want a family movie you need to somewhat picky. But as far as I see right now it passes the first part of my test. Watch it either way.

Kroe on Mar 28, 2009


Where The Wild Things Are. Is sssssso my movie. I love this movie. wach this movie from, rain

rain on Mar 29, 2009


OMG! I love the crazy wild antics of these furry bastards. I wish a big furry wild thing would hurl my body into the side of a mountain and then have a snowball fight with me. That would bring me back to my childhood where my father would do that. He would also sit his hairy ass (just like the Wild Things!) on my head. Can't wait for this one! Takes me right back!

Wonderyearz on Mar 30, 2009


my heart just melted a little bit.

Lacey on Mar 30, 2009


Go read the baby book. Maybe we can see a live action film of "Everybody Poops" and all of you brain deads will go nuts for the CGI shit in the potty!

Wild Poop on Apr 2, 2009


#119, the brian dead one is one you isn't willing to understand others. By what you said eat your own words becuase you are no more intelligent then your words. I don't judge off trailers but by the movie itself and its intent. So if you have a heart at all to prove to kids, I would hold take those back so your kids don't hold them against you (if you even have them or get to).

Kroe on Apr 4, 2009


Dear Kroe, What? At least learn to write before you try to make a point about my heartless words. If I had kids, I wouldn't spoil the wonderful book by subjecting them to this shit movie. Are you now speaking for the kids or one of the a-holes who is shitting over this BS trailer?

Wild Poop on Apr 6, 2009


Pardon me Wild Poop (not a good name) but heres the deal. There have been many adaptions of childen books, graphic novels, novels and sometimes games. First off, the book is almost always (and should be) first except on rare occasions (such as "Narnia" or "Lord of the Rings") and more often this not still is. Second off, whos complaining over the 'BS' trailer? The answer is those who aren't willing to give a childens book adapted film a chance or even trying to respect it. Allot of people forget the phrase 'if you can say anything nice don't say anything at all' becuase it is better kept to yourself. Third, it may be true that trailers do give too much of the movie away as they pick the best moments from it for the trailer. This should not stop people from trying to enjoy the movie in the first place. Take "The Dark Knight", its trailer(s) didn't give away anything about the story except the batman joker face-off. Fourth, to say that I am speaking for kids is not true, I am simply defending the movie becuase I has not even come out yet. Take 2008 Oscars, some of the movies that didn't get very good reviews won oscars mainly due to when they came out (end of the year). And finally the fifth, if you don't want to watch is it, don't. The choice is yours, and if you had kids it would be thiers too. Complaining doesn't make things any better but makes them worse instead. You can in the least explain why you don't like it. If you want argue about it then explain whats to argue about. Since the movie hasn't come out yet all the arguments are based off the trailer and not the move itself, thus less merit becuase no review of it in the first place. If you got a problem with all I say, discuss it somewhere else. People don't need to read about other people bickering. If you don't watch it, don't say anything about what you haven't seen. Just say why you don't want to see it and let it be. Leaving as is Acratos. (Arcatos: particular place, manner and condition of power)

Acratos on Apr 6, 2009


Acratos - One should not write in a public forum if they cannot compose a sentence, but a mere brain fart. These aren’t mean words, but words of wisdom. As far as the trailer, the whole point of a trailer is to interest a potential “victim” to spend money to see the film. Listening to a bunch of supposed adults wetting their pants over a trailer with floppy muppet suits is enough to make me vomit. Don’t even compare Lord of the Rings to a children’s book. It just shows your complete lack of depth. The children’s book was a beautiful statement on boys’ anger. This movie will be another feeble attempt to make money by turning something wonderful into a pile of shit that morons like you will feast over. Your incoherent rambling indicates you probably couldn’t make it through the actual book. Perhaps they’ll adapt Green Eggs & Ham and that might be more fitting for you…little floppy suits and maybe some zany antics from the likes of Jim Carrey or Robin Williams to help with your short attention span.

SamIAm on Apr 7, 2009


Yes but what about Jonze's other lesser know work...Everybody Poops ..

Mike on Apr 7, 2009


Looks ok. Wouldn't see it in the theater, but maybe it's a renter. Not a fan of the book at all. And #5, you're honestly more excited to see this than Avatar? That seems a little sad to me

Rorschach90 on Apr 7, 2009


SamIAm, its wasn't a comparison but pointing out that its based off a book. I have read the "Lord of the Rings" AND "Where the Wild Things Are". "Feast" isn't accurate either by the fact the argument is about defending something becuase it hasn't been seen by those giving a negative comment. If you weren't paying attention it takes a long attention to even read "The Lord of the Rings", and there are good adaptions of childrens books. But that is not to say they are without flaws, several have gone down hill. Still to be fair all that is requested to give it a chance, to the point of renting it, no farther needed. And yes, John Carrrey in "The Cat in the Hat" wasn't a good adaption, as "Horton hears a Who" was better. Now for the sake of everyone else reading this post, lets stop bickering over the trailer and in the very least say for children books 'the book is always better then the movie'. Book always wins, so lets put it to rest.

Wow, I love how the earlier comments are so positive and excited and then the later turned into negative comments with commenters hurling poop at one another. 8-/ Yeesh people, take it easy. It's a movie trailer, take it or leave it. I, for one, am looking forward to it. I recently rediscovered the book with my daughter. And everytime I read it, I appreciate the story and subtlety even more. The great thing about this movie, I think, is that it'll never take the place of the book. The book is less than 10 sentences long. This movie is not like Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter where people will watch the movie instead of reading the book's 100+ pages. The both can co-exist and enhance the enjoyment of both mediums. Just my two cents...

This trailer did a good job of bringing you into the world of the movie without even having seen it!! That song they picked was amazing too...I can't wait for this!

Well Arcade Fire made it better for me, perfect song for the trailer. Movie looks good, I don't know what the others are expecting that they aren't impressed, ha.

-Born into wealth --never less than comfortable -'daring bad boy outsider' Spike Jonze and his latest piece of routine comfort-zone slop. Meanwhile, he and the entire film industry are on financial (---and moral) all fours before the direct heirs of the most awesome genocidal monsters in history ---across the Pacific. They have been for decades. ABSOLUTE FACT 70 million murdered ---in 'peacetime' that you'll never EVER be hearing a quality peep about from Jonze ---or anyone else in Hollywood. ABSOLUTELY TRUE -Ahhh! -but then Hollywood's been dealing franchise-slum enabling fantasies to an America that's in pathological denial of ANY revelation concerning its own 45 million exterminations of the unborn ----largely in the name of 'convenience' and 'liberation'. ---Small world afterall... AMEN
