Wild Things monsters

Jan. 19, 2009by: Mike Sampson

I've been waiting for Warner Bros. to unveil the first looks at the monsters from WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE and it turns out they've been peeked on the most unconventional place imaginable: on the back of skateboards. The company co-founded by Spike Jonze, Girl Skate, posted images of their new skateboard line based on the movie at each features one of the monsters from the movie. I'm sure Warner Bros. wasn't happy with the way the monsters were shown as the images have since been pulled from the site. But they're here now - what do you think?...

Extra Tidbit: Girl Skate was founded in 1993 before Jonze hit it big as a director.

cooool

Those decks are sweet.

If you like Jonze's skate vids you should probably check out his latest for Lakai shoes, "Fully Flared". Coolest intro to a skate video I've ever seen:

Holy crap, I want all of those on my wall. I love that quote under the first pic, too - "The character's feet are too big to switch flip." Girl was always a cool company.

Spike does it again

Whilst I never read the book as a child, and it wasn't the phenomenon that it was in America on this side of the pond, I was always aware of the book, and knew its illustrations etc.

It looks like he's completely nailed this. They look absolutely fantastic.

WTF

I guess i'm a loner here when I say I have no interest whatsoever about this movie. Never liked the book. Is it like 40 pages long? Why is everyone so excited about the movie? Grown men talking about they feel like their 5 years old again, what the hell!! Craziness I say!

Never liked the book

Even as a kid, I hated the art and thought the story was the last thing from "whimsical".
So, don't know what to think about a movie on it.

I CAN'T WAIT

I've been waiting for this book to become a movie since I was little and my grandma used to read it to me. I'm hoping for good things and it should be awesome to see the monsters come alive on the screen. I imagine I will feel old and like a kid all at the same time.

yeah this whole thing is very "neverending story," but probably taking itself too seriously

NOT A FAN OF JONZE'S WORK

but I sure hope he'll deliver the movie he intended to. WB made so much money this year they can afford taking chances with a director like him.

I'm so happy Jonze is getting his way with this - it looks like an instant classic.

Am I the only one who never read this book? I mean...Not even my kindergarten teachers or parents read it to me. I don't even think I've been within 50 feet of this book. What is wrong with my life...?

The monsters look cool. Like old school Labyrinth creatures.
