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.
Make sure you are sitting comfortably. You’ll most likely want to watch this a few times over.
Watch the trailer in high definition on Yahoo. The rumored Flaming Lips song does not appear, but I can certainly tell you Arcade Fire’s Wake Up gets another airing. That song will probably now be forever associated with Wild Things in the way Mr. Blue Sky is eternally Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
Your given reasons for anticipating this picture so… er… wildly included the following:
…because everything that I have seen and heard of this movie looks and sounds absolutely top notch. The visuals I saw in the trailer look great and the Wild Things’ costumes are spot on to the book as well as realistic feeling in a fantastic sort of way.
…because that was one of my favorite books as a kid.
The book brings back great memories from my childhood. The trailer looks absolutely incredible and the nostalgia almost brings me to tears. The film comes out on my birthday weekend and I plan to see it with a some friends in order to reminisce on the book that occupied my childhood. Hopefully, this film will bring back the greatness that Jonze once captured with Being John Malkovich and Adaptation.
…I’ve got such good memories of the book – I’m hoping the movie brings it full circle to my adult life.
Spike Jonze is one of the most talented and inventive directors working today, and it is evident that he has created a fantastic movie.
As soon as I saw the trailer and heard Arcade Fire’s Wake Up I knew this was one of those movies that would have me gawking at the screen with my mouth open (looking like an idiot) but completely engrossed. I cant even count the amount of times I’ve watched that trailer and gotten psyched each time I saw it. It looks like it can deliver a complete movie experience that will leave me more than willing to spend another $10 to see it again.
I mean, it’s Spike Jonze and have you seen the trailer? Tony Soprano literally becomes a monster plus there is Arcade Fire in the background. I hate reading so I haven’t technically read the source material, but I love the audiobook. Hopefully they can do it justice.
And that’s just a small sampling. I think we’re in agreement here. Let the wild rumpus start!Cool Posts From Around the Web:
