Featurette: Production Designer of ‘Where the Wild Things Are’

30 09 2009


We’ve already posted a featurette with Maurice Sendak and his views on Spike Jonze’s Where The Wild Things Are, but now, thanks to I Watch Stuff, we have a nearly twenty-minute long look into the film’s production designer K.K. Barrett. In addition to the upcoming adaptation, Barrett also worked on with Jonze on films such Being John Malkovich and Adaptation.

If the trailers are any indication, the look and feel of  Where The Wild Things Are, particularly in Max’s imaginary world, are going to be what makes or breaks the film. Check out the video after the jump.

Photo Dump: Where The Wild Things Are

15 09 2009


Two trailers, five posters, a featurette and now a photo dump. Can we just have our movie now, sirs?

The New York Times has published an article about the production behind the scenes of the upcoming Where The Wild Things Are, detailing the hardships of production, and design as well as details about the photos. The article is most certainly worth a read, but, if you are like us here at Geek on Film, you are too busy foaming at the mouth to see straight. Check out the five new photos after the jump.

Where The Wild Things Are is set for release on October 16

Where The Wild Things Are Clip

The new character one-sheets for Spike Jonze’s Where The Wild Things Are have appeared online and I wish it was colder out because these posters make me want to curl up in a blanket. Perhaps its a bit of a regression, but I feel like I am going to bawl for 100 minutes in the theater. And now I am afraid I have said to much.

Four extra-cuddly character posters after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

Where The Wild Things Are Clip

MSN has put up a new poster for the highly-anticipated Where The Wild Things Are and I need a shot of insulin. Everything about this film looks so sweet and perfect that I might go into a diabetic coma. Is it wrong that I just want to give Carol a big fuzz-filled hug? Hell, I would even settle for a James Gandolfini hug at this point. Full size poster after the jump. Read the rest of this entry »

Where The Wild Things Are

UPDATE: The trailer is now uploaded to our YouTube account and embedded below the jump!

The theatrical trailer for Where The Wild Things Are has been put up on Yahoo and I am utterly speechless. Everything is simply stunning and beautiful. I can guarantee that this film will be viewed as one of the best of the year and will become an instant classic. If you can get people to cry by showing snipets, you know that you have something special.

Check out the trailer in HD over at Yahoo. I should have an embedded version ready for you either tonight or tomorrow, at which time I will bring the post back to the top of the page. In the meantime, watch it and be happy on a sad day. Read the rest of this entry »

Where The Wild Things Are Featurette

31 07 2009

Like most of you Maurice Sendak’s classic Where The Wild Things Are is near and dear to my heart. When I first heard they were adopting it into a movie I was both excited and afraid. There are so many places to go wrong, and recent cinema history is littered with the destroyed remains of failed adaptations of classic works. All my fears were washed away once I saw the initial trailer (after the jump) and this featurette featuring Sendak and director Spike Jonze. Read the rest of this entry »

Comic-Con Overview

Comic Con

Unfortunately, because I live in New Jersey, making it out to San Diego for Comic Con wasn’t really an option, but it can no doubt be said that some of the coolest movie news comes out of Hall H in the span of a weekend than comes out in some months. That said, with the wrapping up of Comic Con yesterday, here are my favorite bits that came out over the course of the week.
