Where The Wild Things Are Premiere

It premiered, red carpet and all, just last night and rumors have already started to create a big buzz around it! Where The Wild Things Are may have started out in 1963 as a beloved classic children’s picture book by (now) 81-year-old author Maurice Sendak, but now it’s made the leap to silver-screen fame. Before you see the movie yourself (this Friday, October 16, 2009), check out our review of the original story and the movie’s premiere, below.


Kids Tale

Where The Wild Things Are was one of the first kids’ books to depict the inner mind of a child. It seems to be a tale about monsters, but the story is actually more of a peek inside the a kid’s mind, showing how he deals with the unknown.


Wearing a wolf suit and acting like a wild child, a little boy named Max laughs with delight as his imagination transforms his surroundings into a land inhabited by wild things – monsters – almost as wild as Max himself.


Red Carpet

New York City played host Tuesday night to celebrities who turned out for the U.S. premiere of the Where the Wild Things Are. On the red carpet Maurice Sendak, author of the children's book on which the movie is based, producer Tom Hanks and stars Max Records, Forest Whitaker and Catherine Keener.


Max Records, the 12-year-old who plays Max, the movie's lead character, said the movie was a bit scary but that kids (and especially his own friends!) will like it.
