Technically the whole title is a single noun
The new trailer for "Where the Wild Things Are" (watch one of the HD ones if you can) is one of those rare trailers that crackles on your monitor. It looks like a triumph of visual effects and emotion, and it's directed by Spike Jonze to boot. Glad to see they seem to be retaining the spooky, heartfelt raggedness of the original picture book. Remember that only about a year ago we thought they were considering reshooting the whole thing for mass appeal, so this is no small deal.
