“Wild Things” Make Your Heart Sing

The trailer for Where the Wild Things Are has been released, and it looks terrific. With its refreshingly non-CGI effects and its inspired use of “Wake Up” by Arcade Fire, the preview dazzles the eyes and the ears alike.

The movie, directed by the brilliant Spike Jonze from a script he co-wrote with the brilliant David Eggers — which was of course adapted from the immortal children’s story by the brilliant Maurice Sendak — features a score composed by the brilliant Karen O, and comes out on October 16.

  1. I’m far too brilliant to misle anybody.

    If this movie is anything less than brilliant, I’m going to feel completely misled.

  3. Yeah, that looks pretty cool. And I’ll be damned if “Wake Up” doesn’t still give me chills and make me want to spontaneously sing along.
