For several weeks, making "Where The Wild Things Are" headlines again, through a filming of Spike Jones, on 17 December it starts with us in the cinema. Jones wanted to make a film about "how it feels to be nine years old.

Sweeter than candy "it you own: When Jones started with" Wild Things "2003 gave him Sendak Carte Blanche. Sweeter than candy it personally. Make it dangerous, "he reportedly said. He preferred "no film" as a "kiddie movie." Jones remained faithful to the naturalistic approach of the author, however, extended the plot, made from Max something like the little brother of John Connor in "Terminator 2". "Already in the first month of production became clear: that is not a traditional, easily marketable children's film," confided the script co-writer Dave Eggers the magazine "Entertainment Weekly" on.

Just like Max, the former art student understands the power of imagination, the possibility Barren transform everyday things into something spectacular. FOr the soundtrack sought the most exciting singer of today's indie rock to an illustrious band of (wild) rockers together, consisting of Tristan Bechet (Services), Tom Biller (Afternoons), Bradford Cox (Deerhunter), Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) , Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age, The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs), Aaron Hemphill (Liars), Greg Kurstin (The Bird and the Bee), Jack Lawrence (The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs, The Greenhornes), Oscar Michel (Gris Gris), Imaad Wasif (New Folk implosion, Alaska), Nick Zinner, (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), next to a children's choir.

And again, there is no music for children, but music as children they would do.
Together they created 14 times gigantisch- overpowering and again minimalist, bittersweet tracks, they combine fantasy with folk, repeatedly pierced by adrenaline Geschwängerten hooks to sing along, as on "All Is Love". Spike Jonze pushed his ex-girlfriend again and again to pump as much passion as possible in "Wild Things", would the music but play a key role in the film. "Capsize" and "Animal" might as Yeah Yeah Yeah Song go through (the latter in an unplugged session). No real children's song is nebulized, melancholic ballad "Hideaway".
