How hungry are you to see new footage from Spike Jonze‘s Where the Wild Things Are? At this point, anything from this movie is welcome, even if it’s only a few seconds. The UK version of that Maurice Sendak featurette we saw back at Comic-Con has about ten seconds of stuff that previously had only been seen by the public in Hall H. Check it out after the jump.

There have been a couple great filmmaker profiles released over the last 24 hours that I’ve wanted to recommend, one of which even mentions and quotes /Film. First up is a 7-page New York Times profile on Spike Jonze, which is framed using the struggle with Warner Bros over the big screen adaptation of Where The Wild Things Are, and how the internet and blogs (like /Film) helped the filmmaker retain his vision.

Where The Wild Things Are

The first track from the soundtrack to Spike Jonze‘s Where the Wild Things Are is available for streaming at MySpace. The song is credited to Karen O and the Kids, and in this case the name is quite literal. Karen O, from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, worked on the music with a host of different artists, but this track features a raw childrens choir as one of the primary ‘voices’. More details after the break.

The new movie trailer for Where the Wild Things Are Peter aluded to a few days back is now online, embedded after the break. After one of the more anxiety-racking development and production periods of recent geek cinema, Where the Wild Things Are will finally be with us in October. Can it possibly live up to our collective expectations? I’ve found out today (simply by asking) that this is the film more /Film readers are looking forward to than any other. I’ll be quoting some of your reasons why after the trailer below.

Where The Wild Things Are

Yesterday, we saw about 10 minutes of footage from Spike Jonze’s Where The Wild Things Are. Russ wrote up a description and some reactions here, but what we saw was so powerful that me Peter and I felt we had to record a video blog to get all our thoughts out on it. Hit the jump for some of our reactions, but in short, Where The Wild Things are has been the most beautiful thing we’ve seen at Comic-Con so far. My anticipation for the film has gone through the roof, although my only fear is that the film won’t live up to the footage. Somehow, though, I have faith that Jonze will pull this off and deliver us a take on Sendak’s classic book that is entrancing, moving, and extremely inventive.

Where The Wild Things Are

As the young Max Records steps out onto the stage of Hall H he looks out at a couple thousand people but is more self-possessed than a lot of the adult actors we’ve seen stroll out into the Comic Con spotlight. There’s a brief ‘wow’ but he never looks shaken. Records, who we saw briefly in The Brothers Bloom and stars as Max in Where the Wild Things Are, has a quote from Maurice Sendak written on his hand. “You know I really love this movie and I hope people like it, because if not they can all go straight to hell.” Beyond that Max didn’t talk much; instead he introduced three long clips from Wild Things that suggest the movie is tender, adventurous and, yeah, dark and maybe even a bit dangerous.
