In what is sure to be the one of the most anticipated film events in years, the first trailer for the rabidly anticipated, Spike Jonze-directed movie adaptation of the classic children’s book Where The Wild Things Are stormed onto the internet on Wednesday.
Notoriously quick-on-the-draw social media sites are afire with posts, reblogs, and retweets of the trailer on YouTube, Twitter and Tumblr — but it’s bound to go further than that as mainstream media taps into this all-out fan feeding frenzy.
But this is the first bona fide official video clip of the movie — and it looks and feels true to the book.
The only questionable element, it would seem, was the studio’s decision to set the trailer to The Arcade Fire‘s music. As triumphant and rousing as “Wake Up” is, it feels oddly out of synch with the film’s visuals.
