Where the Wild Things Are: The First Look?


Is this clip a high-quality fake, a screen test or the real deal? We’re leaning towards screen test, but who knows?

    larajunky: did you have a childhood? "Where the Wild Things Are" is a classic children`s book. This adaptation is being filmed by Spike Jonze. I think that might be Sean Penn voicing the monster.

    It looks damned good.

    This is a real film, based on the now-classic Maurice Sendak children`s story, and it`s already generating a lot of buzz. Looks real to me, but it also looks unofficial. A leak?

    Actually Axium, I think you`re right both ways.

    From Wikipedia: "The seven creatures will be actors in up to 9 foot tall suits made of foam, although it is expected that their faces will be computer-generated."

    This used to be my favorite book when I started to read, having said that of course you don`t like the book... its target is early grade schoolers and kindergarteners, somehow i don`t think you were worried about that back then. Unfortunately that clip did resemble the book the slightest XD

    The main character was this disobedient punk whose imagination took over his room which basically turned into the jungle(after being sent to his room without supper for chasing the dog with a fork). The idea was not really a cute relationship with the monsters. It was about ferocity and totalitarian ruler ship, he sailed to this island and tamed all the monster being called the most wild thing of all. The book was anything but cute, probably why i liked it XD

    LoofahBoy,
    You don`t need to act tough just because your online. I highly doubt the things you said are true. In fact, I`m sure you were a pampered, spoiled boy in your early childhood. Are you "Too cool" to show emotion? Have you tried to realize that the only thing that keeps you "popular" is the fact that you strive on questionable facts? Here`s a quote from your profile.
    "Favorite Movie: Dr. Strangelove, Transformers, School of Rock
    Favorite TV Show: `KaaaaaaameeeehaaaameeeHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!` "
    I`m pretty sure that justifies my point.

    But in the slim chance you were telling the truth, the book was about a little boy who got sent to his room without supper. His room turned into a jungle where the wild things are. They showed him the true meaning of Christmas.

    Ooh we went over this book in my Reading and Writing Children`s literature class. In addition to what others have said, it`s also quite the fairy tale.
    After having gone over it, I think the ending`s the warmest of all, reminding Max that his mom will be there for him in the end.

    I`m not sure if this particular clip is done with CG or not. Apparently Jim Henson`s Studio (Muppets, etc.) is involved, so it will likely be done with animatronic puppets. Spike Jonze directing too!

    I think that monster was molested by robots, maybe the Decepticons.

    I loved the book when I was little, but I`m always a bit cynical about these Holywood remakes.

    This movie looks awesome. I don`t know if it was just the atmostphere or the fact that its a screen test, but it kind of felt like one eerie, in a Willy Wonka kind of way-a kids story, but deeply eerie at the same time.
