This week’s Waiting on Wednesday is not necessarily book related. It is partially, but not in the more traditional sense. Why is that, you ask? Because this Wednesday I am waiting (impatiently) for the big screen adaptation of my favorite children’s book, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, which is coming to theaters on October 16, 2009.
Watch the trailer here.
A few plot summaries from imdb.com:
Young, mischievous Max is sent to bed without his supper, but when his bedroom turns in to a magical jungle landscape filled with strange creatures, he embarks on a wild imaginary adventure.
An adaptation of Maurice Sendak's classic children's story, where Max, a disobedient little boy sent to bed without his supper, creates his own world--a forest inhabited by ferocious wild creatures that crown Max as their ruler.
The movie is directed by Spike Jonze.
Is it October yet?
