Where The Wild Things Are

Where The Wild Things Are, the best children's book of all time, is now not only a movie, it is a Spike Jonze movie. There is no one better to do something this strangely beautiful.

Peep the trailer, with the accompanying on-point Arcade Fire theme song, realistic costumes (not easy to pull off with 35 ft tall wooly mammoth-like monsters), and predictably unusual Spike cinematography. The script is co-written by Full Clip favorite David Eggers, and the cast will include Forest Whitaker, James Gandolfini (The Sopranos), and Mark Ruffalo.

Due for highly anticipated release October 16.

I can't believe how genius that combination is...Dave Eggers and Spike Jonze. If they were gonna make this book into a movie, this is the way to do it. Looks incredible.
