Where the Wild Things Are Trailer
[If the embed doesn’t work, go here.]
Where the Wild Things Are just released its trailer a few hours ago. I’m completely awestruck. When’s the last time we’ve seen a trailer this good?
Yes, it’s a dream team: Spike Jonze, Dave Eggers, Big Daddy Mo Sendak, and (for the trailer) The Arcade Fire. But it has to be- they’re adapting a book that’s less than 500 words! (Though back when I was a teacher I learned that it took Maurice Sendak FIVE YEARS to write this thing.)
Well, they completely annihilated my expectations. This is pure magic. And officially the movie I’m most excited to see.
God, I hope this opens the floodgates for classic children’s book adaptations. Can you imagine Harold’s Purple Crayon?!
