First Look: ‘Where The Wild Things Are’

Over the past day or so, an image from Spike Jonze’s upcoming (10/3/08) adaptation of the classic children’s novel “Where the Wild Things Things Are” has been floating around the ‘net. The photo in question was taken at Warner Bros.’ booth at the Licensing Show here in NYC. Well, we went the extra mile and dug up the actual high-res image of the young boy flanked by two enormous creatures.

One of my favorite books as a child is finally headed to the big screen thanks to Warner Bros. Pictures. Where the Wild Things Are will combine voice performances, live-action puppetry and computer animation to dramatize the ad-ventures of Max, a rebellious young boy who runs away from home after a fight with his mother and finds himself in a forest where the wild things roam.
