Poster for Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are

Poster for Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are

I'm really looking forward to Director Spike Jonze's live action film adaptation of Maurice Sendak's beloved children's book Where the Wild Things Are. (the screenplay is written by Dave Eggers)

The official movie trailer is going to air as a preview for DreamWorks' Monsters vs. Aliens (in theaters March 27th, 2009). 

A preliminary trailer leaked last month on the web, and later came with a disclaimer from the director that it was premature. 

(film poster found via slash film via Nick magazine)

I can NOT wait :-) Great poster. Looks like the "wild things" are well done.

I'm both excited and scared. What if they don't do it justice? Could they?

No Kidding. The scariest thing about this movie COULD be the quality of the kid-actor. He already looks a bit forced. Nice poster!

I'm really excited about this film. Seriously, Sendak is my hero, and from this interview - - it sounds like Spike is doing an awesome job of keeping the feel of the book and not over hollywoodizing it.

Also at this link in HD -- UF professor John Cech is a Sendak expert. Here is a short audio podcast about Sendak. You can listen to other podcasts here.
