Where the Wild Things Are

Over the past year or so, a lot of back and forth has surfaced about the film adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are. It’s being made, it’s not being made, it’s got Spike Jonez and Dave Eggers, it’s too weird for kids, it’s too weird for adults, it’s too weird, it’s not going to be made, etc.

And then this poster was released.

And then the trailer was released. (Click to see it. Seriously. I couldn’t embed it, but you need to stop right now and watch it.)

The idea of this film being as awesome as the trailer, as creative and brilliant as we could have ever wished for, nearly brings a tear to my eye.

And I’m not being hyperbolic.
