My friend Robin recently posted a link to this trailer, and I immediately thought...is it true? Is it true?
It *is* true! There is going to be a movie of Maurice Sendak's classic picture book, Where the Wild Things Are. (How did I miss this bit of information?)
Now, I have the same wary feeling about this that I had when I heard they were making a film of The Lord of the Rings. Excited, because it could be a brilliant interpretation of a book I adore, and nervous because it could just as easily be a full-fledged disaster.
What do you think? Can Spike Jonze successfully transfer Max's wild rumpus to film?
Here's a short blurb from the LA Times.
I have to admit, the trailer looks pretty awesome.
