Where the Wild Things Are

Its had its fair share of production problems, with reshoots severely delaying release, but it seems that the wait has been worth it

The new trailer for Spike Jonze’s (Being John Malkovich) adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s beloved children’s book Where the Wild Things Are debuted online today, and it’s pretty damn fantastic. Check it out here.

The fantastical story sees disobedient young Max sent to bed without any supper, where he creates his own world – a dark forest inhabited by wild and wonderful creatures, who crown Max as their king.

Featuring a stonking voice cast, including Forest Whitaker, Catherine Keener, Paul Dano and James Gandolfini, Where the Wild Things Are is set for release in late 2009.
