Where the Wild Things Are Max 400 Percent Kubrick Figure

What better way to celebrate a hipster film version of Where the Wild Things Are than with a cool Kubrick figure? This Where the Wild Things Are Max 400 Percent Kubrick Figure won’t be available until December but it looks worth the wait. This figurine is somewhat unusual in that it’s 8 inches tall which is about four times the size of the usual Kubrick creations. Of course being a collectable Max is priced at about $150, but if you’re on a budget for Christmas (or want to start shopping sooner you can get the Where The Wild Things Are Kubricks Figures 6-Pack which should be coming out this month: Read more…

Where the Wild Things Are: TV Spots

Posted by Michael Pinto on Sep 15, 2009 in Cinema

Shown above are the latest TV spots for Where the Wild Things Are, the only different between the two spots are the quotes from the critics. In an age of bad Pixar copies it’s so refreshing to see a lack of technology on the screen for a project like this: Yet even in these shot clips there’s a sense of wonder that so many bad computer animated films never seem to capture.

Where The Wild Things Are: Trailer Two is Terrific!

Posted by Michael Pinto on Aug 7, 2009 in Cinema

If you told me a few months ago that I’d be looking ahead to a live action version of Where The Wild Things Are I’d say that you were crazy — however it looks like Spike Jonze is set to change that! I also love the fact that Maurice Sendak really seems on board: When was the last time that a book author was behind a Hollywood film? I think the last director to pull that off was Stanley Kubrick…

Sendak + Spike = Wild Winner!

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jul 25, 2009 in Cinema

This is nice mini-feature promotional film that was just released to promote Where the Wild Things Are. What I love about this video is that they really showcase Maurice Sendak here, I mean when was the last time you found the author of a book promoting the film? Also I know director Spike Jonze is going to have fun with the film given his previous track record — and I also think that Catherine Keener is one of the most underrated actors I know of: So i can’t wait to see this film!
