This is such a great book, I can’t wait for it to be adapted into a film. It’s one of the few books that is well suited for the screen. It has strong characters, the potential for stunning visuals, appeals to the youngsters, and yet has plenty for adults to enjoy. Over at FirstShowing.net they’ve found a copy of the latest poster from the Spike Jonze Fan Blog and it’s really nicely done. The rumor is, that the trailer for the film will be run in front of Monsters vs. Aliens which is set to be released on March 27th, but nothing had been confirmed.

Until then, enjoy the new poster for Where the Wild Things Are below…


I like this poster. It appeals to kids and yet also strikes a chord in everyone who read the book when they were a child.

What do you think? Are you excited for this film? Or do you think it’s just for kids?

Spike Jonze’s Where the Wild Things Are is set for release on October 16th
