^ Holy shit. It might really, really be worth the wait. Eeeep.
Please say I'm not the only one who appreciates the fact that the Wild Things have the body physicality of very large Muppets, i.e. they don't look entirely real, however their facial expressions are very photorealistic? That seems just right IMO.
Totally. It really seems like something that a child would create from their own imagination; constructed from images they know in life, i.e., muppets, but with a reality of their own added into it.
I picked up the book for the first time since I was about 6 last year and I was surprised by how slight it was. Looks like they've really beefed it up for the film version and that could go very much in its favour. I am glad that Jonze seems to finally have wrangled all the various powers that be and actually got the film done and a seemingly concrete release date set. I've been looking forward to this film for a good two years now and I was starting to think it'd never happen.
Now if someone could find their way to releasing The goddamn Road sometime before the worls actually resembles that of The Road then I'll be happy.
