New Where The Wild Things Are Poster
Another look at Spike Jonze's latest

07 April 2009  |  Written by Chris Hewitt

From the pitch-perfect teaser trailer to the character reveals on skateboards, the marketing for Spike Jonze’s Where The Wild Things Are just hasn’t put a hairy, clawed foot wrong thus far. And today that hot streak continued with the launch of a new poster for the movie.

As you can see, it’s a sort-of glimpse at Carol, the de facto leader of the Wild Things (voiced by James Gandolfini, furry suit by The Jim Henson Company, CG face by Framestore CFC), hiding behind a tree that he’s scratched with his claws. And it’s absolutely spot-on in evoking a scary, yet wistful, tone that should sum up Jonze’s adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s book.

Simply put, we cannot wait for this movie, which opens on October 16. Cannot. Wait.

RE: dark.
Just watched the teaser trailer and it installed the feeling in my stomach I used to get as a kid when reading the book. I even phoned my mum and asked her if she kept any of my books as I wanna re-read it!! I didnt realise how instrumental it was in the development of my imagination as a child (until I saw the trailer and it jogged all those feelings and memories into gear) and i'm very fooking excited to say least.

RE: dark.
"Simply put, we cannot wait for this movie, which opens on October 16. Cannot. Wait" This is yet another case of the Empire writers hyping a mildly interesting movie to death with their over enthusiastic 'OMG Greatest movie EVA!!!' articles We may as well be reading some fourteen year olds personal blog for movie news nowdays, the journalistic integrity on display would be about the same More

I really hope this film isn't too dark. My seven year old loves the books and I want to take him to see it without having the shit scared out of him More

The more I see of this film, the more interested I am. With this and Coraline both coming this year, does this mean the 'dark' kids' film is back? More
