Default Where the Wild Things Are

Anyone as excited (well... hopefully optimistic) about this movie as i am!?

I know i always loved this book as a child, in fact i still love it!
At first i thought it wouldn't translate over well into a movie but after seeing the trailer I'm getting more excited over it!

Comments, ideas, general word's about the topic?

Really looking forward to it! I don't completely remember everything about the story, but the trailer did refresh some memory's, I think I may even go out and get the book again as it's been re-released here in the Uk, but it does look as if they've done a great job making the movie version! Just glad they've waited until now, imagine what a version of it 10 or 15 years ago would have been like, terrible I'd think with really bad costumes etc!

yeah - VERY excited about this - just a really great great book and i think spike jonze is the right choice for director. i thought the trailer looked really cool and i like the way they've done the monsters - sort of unreal and it looks like they are pretty close to the original artwork.

plus they used the arcade fire for one of the trailers. hurrah!

I'm excited about this. I'm a huge fan of Maurice Sendak, I even wrote my dissertation on Wild Things and some of his other books so I'm going to be hard to please! But I love Spike Jonze so I trust him to do good things with this.
