Call us childish, but here at CR we’re really excited about the forthcoming release of the film adaptation (directed by Spike Jonze) of Maurice Sendak’s classic 1963 children’s book, Where The Wild Things Are. Jonze and Dave Eggers wrote the film adaptation and Jonze’s ex, Karen O (of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs) has produced the film score. By the looks of this trailer, the team done good: we can hardly wait for the film’s release!
