Where the Wild Things Are The Movie ?

One of the most important children’s books has been adapted for the big screen for a release date of October 2009, yet for some strange reason it has flown under the radar since plans were erected to film the adaption of Maurice Sendak’s classic book, Where the Wild Things Are. Spike Jonze is the director of this mystery film that has only two pictures to show for any existence of any type of filming of this endeavor.

Warner Brothers is either keeping this movie under wraps, or maybe not much interest was garnished with lacklustre performances by the Dr. Seuss films in the past few years. It remains to be seen how you can turn a quick reading child’s book into a two hour movie. One can only guess. I think this movie might surprise a few people.

Maurice Sendak’s classic book comes to the big screen in an adventure tale for every generation. Where the Wild Things Are follows the adventure of Max (Max Records), a mischievous young boy who is sent to his room after rebelling against his mother (Catherine Keener). Max’s imagination is free to roam, and it soon transports him to a thriving forest bordering a vast sea. Delighted, he sets sail for the land of the Wild Things, where mischief reigns and Max rules. In bringing this imaginative fantasy to life, Jonze leads a team of filmmakers incorporating the most dynamic elements of voice performance, live-action puppetry and computer animation.
