The ‘net was buzzing, yesterday. The hotly anticipated Where the Wild Things Are movie isn’t slated to be released until 2009, and the studio has been very tight-lipped with any information that might give us an idea of what we’re in for once the big day arrives. But somehow… a video of a scene from the movie was leaked to the internet a few days ago.
Speculation has run from “complete fake” to “absolutely real” and everywhere inbetween. No one seems to know where or how it made its debut, but the clip was posted, then removed, then surfaced in other locations, and still—no one seemed to know whether it was the real deal or not. Check it out:
Let me just remind you (before we go any further) how I feel about the impending movie. Trepidation doesn’t really even begin to cover it. After watching that clip? I think I upgraded to actual dread.
So I clicked around to read some more about it. Ain’t It Cool News suggests that the clip is indeed real, but should be considered unlikely to appear in the final product:
Now, I’ve seen this film. Or rather, I saw a version of it. And I can tell you that there’s a reason this film isn’t coming out in 2008 anymore. There’s a lot of work left to do on it, and I wouldn’t be surprised to hear about some fairly massive reshoots in the months ahead.
So… ummmm… that and a buck will get you a cup of coffee. And a nightmare or two (more) about the movie….
