The long awaited Where the Wild Things Are film finally debuts this week.
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.
The soundtrack alone qualifies this as a family event for Suzy it will feature The Chemical Brothers (Elektrobank) , Bjork (It's Oh So Quiet) to Daft Punk. Other cast members include Mark Ruffalo, Lauren Ambrows and James Gandolfini. The monsters' reated for the film range from 6 to 8 feet tall and were designed and created by The Jim Henson Company. The heads for the costumes were said to be so strenuous to wear that the actors inside could only work for 30 minute period with 10 – 15 minute air conditioning breaks in between!
So let the royal rumpus start and go see Where the Wild Things Are this weekend!
