New Images Show Where The Wild Things Are

5 More stills from the upcoming adaptation


Last week we brought you new character banners for Max and the Wild Things, and now we have five brand new shiny stills to put you into excitement overload.

Depicting the adventures of Max in his fantasy world, the images reinforce the love, care and attention to detail with which director Spike Jonze has handled this adaptation of Maurice Sendak's classic children's book.

If anything, the images are further proof that fears over Jonze's mixing of puppetry and CGI to bring the Wild Things to life were unfounded - they look fantastic.

Check out the new images (courtesy of The New York Times);

Where The Wild Things Are is released in this Kingdom on December 11th.

On a scale of 1-10, how excited are you for this film!?

      Full on 10 excited for this film, but i've never read the book. The look of the world and the creatures just blew my mind the first time I saw them and I was actually quite moved by the first trailer. Roll on 11th December, I can't get enough of this one :)

      Agree with darjeelingmike ... never read the book and had my doubts about the film at first but the recent trailer was utterly charming and, suprisingly, altogether poignant to boot ... if the film can maintain the level of quality throughout we could be looking at a wonderful end to the year ... so refreshing to see a film that incorporates plenty of old-fashioned animatronic work and doesn't rely on layers and layers of unconvincingly naff CGI ... Spike Jonze has proved his credentials before and I'm hoping he can inject his own quirky sensibilities into this film ...

      I have read the book. It's amongst my favourite childhood books and I still own it. And I think the trailer is bloody brilliant. Sure, they've clearly added a lot to the story (the book is very short) but it lloks like the film has really captured the magic of the original work. Can't wait!!!
