My love — and most of yours — for the theater length trailer for Where the Wild Things Are is widely known in these parts. It’s wistful and magical and heart-tugging and just all around powerful, and at least some of that can be attribute to the Arcade Fire song. Well, this new 30-second TV Spot doesn’t have Arcade Fire — the song is one of many from Karen O and the Kids, who are responsible for the film’s kid-friendly soundtrack, which — by the way — comes out tomorrow. Parents — it’s not too late to preorder. I have, and it’ll be on my doorstep Tuesday (along with Away We Go).
Anyway, check out the TV Spot. It’s solid. And I am so gonna raise my kid hipster. Not LA douchebag hipster. But the cool, Austin hipster. This movie (and the soundtrack) is gonna be a great first step.
