A brand new trailer for “Where the Wild Things Are“, adapted by Academy Award-nominated director Spike Jonze from the best selling book by author Maurice Sendak, has now been released.
The film follows the adventure of Max (Max Records), a mischievous young boy who is sent to his room after rebelling against his mother (Catherine Keener). Max’s imagination is free to roam, and it soon transports him to a thriving forest bordering a vast sea. Delighted, he sets sail for the land of the Wild Things, where mischief reigns and Max rules. In bringing this imaginative fantasy to life, Jonze leads a team of filmmakers incorporating the most dynamic elements of voice performance, live-action puppetry and computer animation.
Some of the cast includes Benicio Del Toro, Forest Whitaker, Mark Ruffalo, Lauren Ambrose, James Gandolfini and Catherine O’Hara.
“Where the Wild Things Are” hits theaters on October 16th, 2009.
