Wild things to come
Apple has the trailer for new film, Where the Wild Things Are, online. It's based on Maurice Sendak's children's picture book.
I learned about it via Barista, who says the trailer is "a corker". Which it is. They also made it at the giant move studio at Docklands. The one that isn't getting used much anymore.
I wonder which one of these children's books, especially the picture books, will be as enduring as Sendak's book, and get turned into a movie.
Personally, I'm a big fan of Shaun Tan's illustrations and stories, but one of the things I love about them is the intimacy of seeing them on the page and holding the book in my hands. Don't know if I'd want to see them larger than life on the silver screen. Though I'm happy to change my mind. After all, my kids and I have been enjoying the kids' animated TV series based on Graeme Base's Animalia.
And I will be going to see Where the Wild Things Are.
