Well, here’s the long-awaited trailer for Spike Jonze’s Where the Wild Things Are. (It premiered today on Ellen. We wrote about the first poster last week.) From the looks of it, the movie spends a fair amount of time on Max’s pre-adventure life, in which he appears to be something of a starry-eyed outcast, estranged from his peers and even, perhaps, his mother—and obsessed with sailing away to a fantasy world. The scenes from the land of the Wild Things, meanwhile, mostly involve a dazed Max being spirited away from some unseen danger by one of the wild hairy beasts.
