Let The Wild Rumpus Start!

Maurice Sendak's controversial book from the 60's-70's, Where The Wild Things Are, has been adapted into a movie. From the trailer, Max does not seem to be naughty or impish at all. He looks morose.

Also, there's a scene in the trailer where Max saw a couple kissing. If this implies the reason for Max's escape to where the wild things are, then the movie has taken a great liberty to change some aspect of the story. If Inkheart was Disneyfied, I wonder what gets lost in the translation of this beloved children's book into the big screen.

It sure is worth a watch.
