Poster watch: Where the Wild Things Are

It’s not every day the movie blogging world lights up in response to a new poster but hey - the one-sheet for Where the Wild Things Are, director Spike Jonze's long anticipated adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s children’s book, is very cool.

Check out this picture from the book:

Now check out the film poster:

Going by what we can see of the huge furry creature, it looks like Ludo from Labyrinth. Evidently he/she/it is a little too large for a Happy Meal tie-in: as rumour has it, McDonalds scotched a huge marketing deal after the filmmakers demanded the creature should be at least the size of a regular thickshake.

Remember you read it here first people. And for a very good reason: I made it up.


  1. F N YEAH! Can't Wait to see it! It's such a sweet book.

  2. Ludo is a Wild Thing. Everything in the Labyrinth comes from something in Sarah's room. In the first scene in her room the camera pans over a stuffed Sir Didymus next to the Wild Things book.
