Warner Bros. have now released 4 new character posters on MySpace for Spike Jonze’s upcoming “Where the Wild Things Are” and like everything else that we have seen from the film so far, they are beautiful and awesome. Sometimes I wonder if I am putting my hopes up too high for the film, but I have a strong gut feeling that this will be one of the rare times when a film lives up to it’s high expectations. You can see the posters for yourself when you hit the jump.
Here is the film’s official plot synopsis in case if you’ve forgotten why you should be anticipating “Where the Wild Things Are”:
“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.”
“Where the Wild Things Are” opens on October 16th.
