MdmRptr says: May 14, 2009 at 5:32 pm I just made my 18+ year old step-dtr sit down and watch this with me. I cried. She teared up. IT WILL BE EPIC. It’s the first thing she and I have agreed on in months. And that is how powerful the freakin’ preview is. ravan says: May 12, 2009 at 12:17 pm i haven’t been so excited in YEARS!!!!!!!!!!! O. M. G.!!!!!!!!!!! Breagan says: April 23, 2009 at 6:34 pm I think I’m going to cry. Cant wait! Dorian Wallace says: April 7, 2009 at 7:51 pm I can’t wait! My hubby bought Max & Goatboy figurines years before we met knowing he was going to name his son Max (after a Grandfather)….our Max is going to be 3 in Sept. and he looks just like the Max in the movie…(at least he will at that age). jennifer says: April 2, 2009 at 8:18 pm oh my freakin gosh! one of the best books ever! never thought when i was little that i would ever see a live action version of this movie and now i’m about to pee my pants waiting. Jen says: March 30, 2009 at 4:30 am This is giving me multiple heart-attacks due to unmitigated awesomeness. cruz says: March 29, 2009 at 8:26 am wow. another potentially bad movie adaptation/ “re-imagining” from a beloved book. buzzkill. Linda says: March 27, 2009 at 8:22 am I’m listening to an old interview with Maurice Sendak on NPR. Even more endearing now: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4680590 Doomsdaychicken says: March 26, 2009 at 1:58 pm spike jonze made my life in the 90’s via music videos, it’s good to see him work on a project that he can totally thrive with, and btw i love that he still uses that warm sunny “naturey” look! shaun says: March 26, 2009 at 1:41 pm FREAKING AWESOME! I love the book and this looks fantastic. Deltus says: March 26, 2009 at 11:36 am How dare you say that about Jim Henson’s muppetry… Okay, you have a point. DAMMIT! Klink says: March 26, 2009 at 7:46 am Reminds me of the cheesy (c’mon you know it’s true) Jim Henson Muppet style costumes in Fraggle Rock and that flying thing in The Neverending Story. You’d think costume technology would have evolved after 25 years. Deltus says: March 26, 2009 at 7:23 am Holy fucknuggets, that took you all of 18 minutes. Impressive. Plus, what you doing up at 4:30am checking emails, cracka? Never read that book, but the story, based on the 2 minute trailer, looks inspiring. Chris Hardwick says: March 26, 2009 at 4:39 am Fixed! Deltus says: March 26, 2009 at 4:21 am Video removed due to terms of service violations. Just another case of the Man keepin’ us down!!! Zeus says: March 26, 2009 at 2:45 am Help! This is awsomely auspicious and I aggradiate appreciatively!!!!!! Athena says: March 25, 2009 at 9:11 pm Good god – I am going to cry. I cannot wait for my boy child to see this. If only we had someone to go with us that wanted to really take hold and be a real second dad (or second mum) to this amazing kid i am raising. That’s how much seeing the book become this movie means to me. I’ve waited forever. Alex says: March 25, 2009 at 7:07 pm OH.MY.GOD!!! Sam Swanson says: March 25, 2009 at 4:22 pm Finally! It looks amazing. manny says: March 25, 2009 at 4:07 pm Hello, Here’s a list with other 15 awesome videos of Spike Jonze – http://tinyurl.com/d2p3ay Thank you Dumblond says: March 25, 2009 at 3:33 pm I can’t wait to see that! It looks so cool! Thank you for sharing that! HippyGourmet says: March 25, 2009 at 12:16 pm Grew up reading & re-reading the Sendak book “Where the Wild Things Are” and in so many ways felt like it was the story of my childhood and life. When I heard that Spike Jonze was directing I felt the tears of joy tugging at my heart, because I just knew that he would connect the motion images to what I saw and felt inside my mind for all these years. The trailer is magnificent! Just the right hint of raw and wild appeal that draws you in, sans the Disney-esque glossiness. Bravo Mr. Jonze! torben says: March 25, 2009 at 12:02 pm Oh, the excitement… TonyWasRight says: March 25, 2009 at 11:32 am Yes i will see this movie, Yes i will clap my hands and laugh, and Yes i will surely get beat up upon exiting the theater BUT IT WILL BE WORTH IT!! Charity says: March 25, 2009 at 11:25 am Holy Cow! How is it that I hadn’t heard about this? Thank you so much for posting this! Warren says: March 25, 2009 at 11:24 am That’s one of the better uses I’ve seen of Wake Up, I have to say. Good song. There’s something about the trailer that makes me think of Terry Gilliam, possibly because of Time Bandits and Jabberwocky. The imagery reminds me of those films. But … October 16th? Sheesh! Zach says: March 25, 2009 at 11:16 am Working now, thanks so much for posting this!!! It was my favourite book as a child and looks to be a fantastic movie! I’m keeping a realistic amount of hope, though, as I’ve been burned by many fantastic trailers. Alissa says: March 25, 2009 at 11:15 am woohoo. a friend was going to sneak into monsters vs. aliens just to see this trailer. Jonze cut his own trailer too. isn’t that cute? yes it is. Chris Hardwick says: March 25, 2009 at 11:00 am The server might be taking a beating. Try back though! It’s worth it!!! Zach says: March 25, 2009 at 10:58 am Dammit!!! It’s not working for me!!! bluemayonnaise says: March 25, 2009 at 10:56 am “And it was still hot.” Tina says: March 25, 2009 at 10:44 am OMG! I can’t waaaaiiiiiiitttttttt Ethan Murdock says: March 25, 2009 at 10:43 am Holy Shit I’ve been excited for this movie ever since my girlfriend told me about it. i loved the book and i even have it on my bookshelf next to me. hands down the best childrens book ever and soon to be the best movie ever Holli says: March 25, 2009 at 10:42 am I saw this earlier and I cried.. omg I cannot wait for this to come out.. one of my favorite books growing up. eye-shuh says: March 25, 2009 at 10:40 am Same director as “Being John Malkovich” which makes me think this is going to be epic. The styles will mesh well together. Sean Sailors says: March 25, 2009 at 10:39 am Agreed.
