Found a surprise package on my doorstep today out of nowhere. Warner Brothers sent over a little care package for their upcoming Where the Wild Things Are movie directed by Spike Jonze. Inside was a copy of Maurice Sendak's book, which I don't own and haven't read in ages (now I know what I'm reading tonight), a copy of the trailer and featurette, and a limited edition poster. If you haven't seen anything from this yet, then I don't know where you've been living, because everyone else that I know is anxiously awaiting the debut of this wonderful movie in October. I shot a little video as well so everyone can see what's in it.
Where the Wild Things Are is directed by visionary filmmaker Spike Jonze, of great 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 year. 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.
sure go ahead and make us jaleous with your special shit

still think this will bomb. Mainly because the action scenes in the trailer make the giant furry CGI fake creatures look like giant furry CGI fake creatures, which is bad! I never read the book, if it has 'action' in it then fair enough, if not then why add scenes to make your characters look laughably bad?

ChrisUK is douchebag! The CG on the trailers look great and there is no doubt about that! I think the mix of the suits with the cg heads is going to bring a very convincing performance that motion capture has been unable to achieve. The package is awesome, hopefully they'll release something similar to general public in the near future. thanks for sharing.
