I’m going to lose all perspective when it finally comes time for me to see “Where the Wild Things Are”. It’s my most anticipated movie of the year and I’m afraid I’m setting myself up to the point where I’m about to do a story with a headline, “I’m still excited for WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE”.
But we’re not quite there yet as this is a real story showing off four more character banners for the film. The previous four looked great. These look great too. So does the entire film. We’re gonna have to wait a few more weeks for that last one so you’ll just have to hit the jump and enjoy these posters for now. “Where the Wild Things Are” hits theaters on October 16th.
For those just tuning in, there’s an official synopsis after the pretty posters.
Innovative director Spike Jonze collaborates with celebrated author Maurice Sendak to bring one of the most beloved books of all time to the big screen in “Where the Wild Things Are,” a classic story about childhood and the places we go to figure out the world we live in. The film tells the story of Max, a rambunctious and sensitive boy who feels misunderstood at home and escapes to where the Wild Things are. Max lands on an island where he meets mysterious and strange creatures whose emotions are as wild and unpredictable as their actions. The Wild Things desperately long for a leader to guide them, just as Max longs for a kingdom to rule. When Max is crowned king, he promises to create a place where everyone will be happy. Max soon finds, though, that ruling his kingdom is not so easy and his relationships there prove to be more complicated than he originally thought.
