The first trailer is now out for the Spike Jonze/Dave Eggers adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are. (Many thanks to Dan for providing the link!) The music in the clip is a song by Arcade Fire. There’s no chance that I won’t be there opening day. This time next year, Dave Eggers could conceivably be looking at two Academy Awards – best original screenplay and best adapted screenplay. Just throwing that out there.
Speaking of adapted screenplays, word on the book-to-movie scene is that the Coen Brothers will postpone their adaptation of The Yiddish Policmen’s Union in favor of bringing a new version of Charles Portis’s True Grit to the screen.
