Maurice Sendak and Spike Jonze

We've posted about Spike Jonze before, but his most recent project is bringing to film Maurice Sendak's powerful children's books "Where the Wild Things Are".

Everything I've seen about this movie is extremely captivating, and it looks really refreshing to me. I think mainly because Jonze has mostly steered clear of the overuse of CGI special effects. He's using huge costumes blended seamlessly with minimal CGI. I'm sooo glad he's opted to use live action as opposed to creating all the characters with CGI. The trailer came out today, and it looks way creepy/fascinating to me. You can view the trailer here. I'm not sure what to expect.

If you are interested, the music in the trailer is from the Arcade Fire. Its a great song, but this band has always been kinda hit and miss for me.

I'm excited about this, and I never get excited for movies. (I think the last time I got excited for a movie was The Emporer's New Groove.)
