Where The Wild Things Are

We seem to be on an unintentional childhood kick with recent posts, so why stop now:

EVERYONE read this book when they were little and now it’s been imagined for the screen by Spike Jonze. The danger with taking such a classic book and making it a film is that it won’t live up to expectations – but judging by this trailer, we have nothing to worry about.
Using such a creative and daring director like Spike Jonze to bring the Wild Things to life was a good call, his past work as a music video director saw him create brilliant things for Bjork, The Chemical Brothers and Daft Punk and his film Being John Malkovich showcases his sideways take on life. Perfect for bringing a childrens book to the screen.
And if you needed anymore confirmation that this film will be good – Karen O (lead singer of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) provides the music.
