This is a film clip from Spike Jonze's new film, "Where The Wild Things Are", which he co-wrote with Dave Eggers, one of my favorite authors. Spike Jonze is a genius, and this film is gonna be amazing. Actually, this isn't actual film footage but test footage. Jonze explained about the footage:
“that was a very early test with the sole purpose of just getting some footage to Ben our vfx (visual effects) supervisor to see if our vfx plan for the faces would work. The clip doesn’t look or feel anything like the movie, the Wild Thing suit is a very early cringy prototype, and the boy is a friend of ours Griffin who we had used in a Yeah Yeah Yeahs video we shot a few weeks before. We love him, but he is not in the actually film…Oh and that is not a wolf suit, its a lamb suit we bought on the internet. Talk to you later…“
However, this movie is having some trouble. It just got pushed back to 2009, and studio sources are saying that they want the whole movie to be re-shot! Spike Jonze is a art-film director and Dave Eggers is one of the most unique writers in America, what did they expect? For them to make an easy family film like "The Grinch" or "The Cat in the Hat"?
