First Poster for Where the Wild Things Are

March 17, 2009

Director Spike Jonze has been off the radar for a long time, but he's coming back with an adaptation of Maurice Sendak's famous children's book Where the Wild Things Are. Most of us either read that book or had it read to us when we were kids, and now it's coming to the big screen. Hit the jump to see the first full poster of the movie.

This movie will obviously be targeted at kids, but Warner Bros. is reportedly getting cold feet after the poor showing of Speed Racer. It's hard to imagine this film won't do better than Speed Racer, and this new poster is evidence of the coolness of the monsters we're going to be seeing in it.
