A First Look at Where the Wild Things Are


The first image from Spike Jonze's adaptation of Maurice Sendak's classic children's book Where the Wild Things Are has been released. If Jonze can bring the same wit and magic realism to this as he did to Being John Malkovich, I'm there. Seems like a perfect fit to me.

  2. I hated the book when I was young. Kids are very particular about these things.
