I stopped my list at the end of July the other night. Where the Wild Things Are doesn't open until October 16th. But I can't keep this trailer from you.
When I heard last year that Spike Jonze was directing this movie, I was psyched--I felt that of all the filmmakers active today, few if any stood a better chance of bringing this book to life. If the two or so minute sample below is any indication of the final product--if the movie is anywhere near as beautifully constructed as this trailer--Where the Wild Things Are could wind up being the best movie of 2009. Mark my words.
[Please don't even consider watching this trailer without going full-screen. Trust me.]
