Visionary director Spike Jonze brings Maurice Sendak's beloved children's book to the big screen with the help of hipster icon Dave Eggers, who teamed with Jonze to pen the adapted screenplay.
A mixture of real actors, computer animation, and live puppeteering, "Where the Wild Things Are" follows the adventures of a young boy named Max as he enters the world of the Wild Things, a race of strange and enormous creatures who gradually turn the young boy into their king.
"Let the wild rumpus start!" King Max rules a wondrous realm of gigantic fuzzy monsters – but being king may not be as carefree as it looks! Explore the joyous, complicated and wildly imaginative wild rumpus of the time and place we call childhood.
