It's not just your favorite children's book anymore. The Maurice Sendak classic Where the Wild Things Are has been adapted into a motion picture by eccentric director Spike Jonze. The otherworldly film, featuring Muppet-like monsters voiced by everyone from Forest Whitaker to James Gandolfini, tells the story of a naughty boy named Max, who is sent to bed without supper and creates a world of wild forest creatures who crown him as king.
