Let the Wild Rumpus Start
The Where the Wild Things Are trailer is here, and holyohmygod is it awesome. It makes me all fluttery and fuzzy. It’s seventeen kinds of heart-swelly. I just hope the movie is half as good as the trailer.
Written by Dave Eggers and directed by Spike Jonze, Where the Wild Things Are is an adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s story, where Max, a disobedient little boy sent to bed without his supper, creates his own world—a forest inhabited by ferocious wild creatures that crown Max as their ruler. Voice talent includes Forest Whitaker, Paul Dano, James Gandolfini, Catherine O’Hara, and Lauren Ambrose. Max Records plays Max, and Catherine Keener plays his mother.
