From director Spike Jonze (read: Directors Label and Girl Skateboards video “Yeah Right!”) is the highly anticipated film version of the children’s book Where the Wild Things Are. As I’m sure anyone born during the early 80’s knows how amazing and inspiring this book was to us as young kids, it remains just the same with the release of this beautiful trailer. Perfectly set to Arcade Fire’s “Wake Up,” Spike Jonze builds a sense of curiosity as the boy and his Wild Things are running through surreal forests and lands while juxtaposing back to the kid’s parents house in a city.  The words Hope and Fear are inserted throughout the trailer making viewers question their own lives and evoking creative imagination to get lost beyond everyday lives. The film is set to be released in October and will be accompanied by a musical score from Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
