Spike Jonze’s adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s beloved children’s story Where the Wild Things Are gets a big-screen outing at the Bank of America Friday Night Flicks at the ICE at Discovery Green. The story follows Max, a little boy who turns getting sent to bed without his supper into an adventure when he creates an imaginary world filled with monsters who make him their ruler. Jonze, who creates a dark vision of the story, used real actors, computer animation and puppeteering for the film. He co-wrote the screenplay adaptation with Dave Eggers.
