The more we see of Spike Jonze’s adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are, the more excited and worried I get. Sure, it looks awesome, but I have to wonder how they make a short story for kids into a compelling full length movie. Also, Whenever I hear James Gandolfini’s voice come out of the Wild Thing Carol, I keep expecting he to say he wants some Capicolla and then threaten to whack Max.

From IMDB:
Maurice Sendak’s classic book comes to the big screen in an adventure tale for every generation. Where the Wild Things Are 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.
