New photos from Spike Jonze's latest

Where The Wild Things Are lives up to its name

Some interesting new shots from Spike Jonze's new movie have turned up online, bumping the movie straight up into our most wanted list.

Based on a book by Maurice Sendak, the movie tells the story of a boy named Max, who has a series of adventures with mythical beasts. Whilst in his room. Where he's been banished to for “making mischief.” So far, so surreal.

It's just ten sentences long too, making plenty of room for Jonze to add his own slant on the material. Judging by the pictures (below and in the gallery to the right), he's done just that.

So are you as excited as us or should Jonze give up on ten-line stories and go back to Charlie Kaufman?

      I personally cannot wait. I have vague memories of the book but the images look like they capture the magic of what I remember, perfectly. The only person who I think could have done a better job would be Gondry.
