It premiered this morning on the Ellen show; now it’s hit the internet for your consumption. The trailer for Spike Jonze’s Where The Wild Things Are is by turns beautiful, moving, and thrilling. I’ve always believed that Jonze could deliver a magical adaptation and this certainly does a lot to reinforce my faith in him. Your mileage may vary but either way, hit the jump to check out the trailer and, as always, let us know what you think in the comments. [Update: A big thanks to various /Film commenters for pointing out that the songs used in the trailer are different versions of "Wake Up" by Arcade Fire.]
