One of my favorite bedtime books as a child, Where the Wild Things Are, is coming to life in a movie to be released October 16th, 2009. This adaptation of the classic story has some big names, including Forest Whitaker, James Gandolfini, and Mark Ruffalo. It will be interesting to see how much material they can get out of the short story, and where they take artistic license. The preview makes it look like a genuinely feel good film that will be enjoyed by children and adults alike. Check out the official trailer here.
