With the possible exception of Watchmen, no movie this year comes with more 'what the hell are they thinking?' baggage than Spike Jonze's live-action adaptation of Where The Wild Things Are. This allegedly wildly over budget ($115 million thus far), but refreshingly old-school fantasy (note the actual costumes rather than CGI) opens from Warner Bros on October 16th, 2009. I don't have the deep emotional connection to the original storybook as others do, but this is just the kind of artistic gamble that has made Warner Bros. my favorite major studio. I'll let the trailer speak for itself. While I'm always suspicious when there is almost no dialogue, this teaser is certainly an attention grabber.
