“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.
