A new poster for Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are is below. The movie itself was written by Dave Eggers, and it's had a hell of a time making its way through production. There was apparently some test-screening problems, which means that the movie was probably too good for mainstream audiences. Late last year, in fact, I predicted that it would be one of the biggest box-office disappointments of the year, though I suspect it will be a critical favorite.

I still don't know how they'll manage to turn a very short book like this into a movie, but I love the Maurice Sendak source material. I don't even know why. There's hardly anything there, but the kid goes apeshit every time I read it (I think we're approaching the 47,677th time) and that seems to be enough reason to love it. And I certainly wouldn't doubt Eggers' and Jonze's ability to capture its spirit onscreen.

It hits theaters in October. Here's the poster:
