There are many reasons why I’m looking forward to Spike Jonze’s adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are. However, for the simplest explanation, I only ask that you watch the above, recently released, trailer. I’ll wait while you do…

The best way to describe it was already done by Devin Faraci at chud.com.

“I actually got choked up watching the trailer for Spike Jonze’s Where the Wild Things Are. And not because it’s sad or I have a deep personal connection to the book (closest I come is that my freshman dorm at SUNY Albany had Wild Things paintings on the walls). I choked up because that’s simply my reaction to things of incredible beauty and emotion.”

I do actually have a personal connection to the book, as it was my favorite as a child, and either read it or had it read to me more times than I could ever count, so my joy at seeing what looks like an adaptation done perfectly is, if anything, even greater.

If you’re still not convinced, check out some stills from the film and just tell me it doesn’t look like one of the most beautifully shot movies ever made.
