New Wild Things pic

12.12.2007

A 2008 film that’s charting sky-high on Ben Barna’s ‘must-see chart’ is Spike Jonze’s adaptation of the classic Maurice Sendak children’s book WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. The screenplay was written by hipper-than-thou writer Dave Eggers, and features voice work from Catherine Keener, James Gandolfini, Forest Whitaker and Lauren Ambrose. We’ve been treated to very little of the film so far except for this picture. It was obtuse enough to keep my curiosity strong, but revealed enough to give an idea of the film's aesthetic. Now we have a second picture that reminds me how transcendental this film can be. It’s sublime, mystical and it gets me wet. Also, those big, huggable Wild Things look f*cking adorable. Spike Jonze (ADAPTATION) has long been one of Hollywood's true visionaries, but we tend to forget it since he makes so few films. WILD THINGS drops on the too-distant date of October 3rd.

To some of the worried guys below me...yes, kids DO still read this book, it's still very much an [link] staple. Besides, you can bet they'll give it a new print run timed with the movie's release. The photo looks fantastic, by the way.

Just those silhouettes are getting me uber-pumped. Can't tell ya how happy it makes me they're actually dudes in suits, rather than shitty CGI (hopefully the faces don't ruin that). Otherwise, totally awes.

While I was initially a little shaky in my support for this thing (after all, we're talking about a classic here) I am now definitely looking forward to it. The tidbit alone makes me excited, because one thing I had been worried about was how real these guys would look.

I'm not sure the book has gone out of style. I think kids of a certain age still read a lot of the same books. I know my niece reeds some of the same books I used to read at that age. I was actually considering this book for

I was actually considering this book for her birthday, but since she's at that age where tearing paper is fun, I figured I'd wait a year or two.

So I'm guessing the film's story has been expanded somewhat from (if I remember correctly) boy is bad, boy goes to bed with no dinner, boy dances with monsters, boy has change of heart and goes back to bed. Granted, the plot is a BIT more complex than something like "Horton Hears a Who," but ... wait a minute, they're making that, too, aren't they? Hmmm ... Ah, whatever. Spike Jonze is directing, so it's pretty much guaranteed to kick ass.

I hope whoever edits the theatrical trailer does a damn good job. I fear this film will not make the numbers it should. Like just stated, this film should have been made years ago. I own (it's somewhere around here) and remember thoroughly enjoying this book in my youth (I am now 32 years old).

I don't think the young kids of today have any clue this book even exists. That means it will only be me and my fellow adults (re-living our youth) that will be seeing this film unless the trailers

I don't think the young kids of today have any clue this book even exists. That means it will only be me and my fellow adults (re-living our youth) that will be seeing this film unless the trailers are done in a fashion that captures young people's interest right off the bat. Here's hoping.

Wild Things

Where the hell was this movie when I was little? Do little kids even read this book anymore? I assume it's been replaced with "The Adventures of G-thug Timmy and the curse of the cop killa"
