We must save Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are

A spy named" Cinemaniac1979" sent AIC a rather passionate letter begging Knowles & co. to save Where the Wild Things Are.

Here is my favorite quote from that letter:

This movie is Fred Savage’s grandfather saying “As you wish” at the end of The Princess Bride.

This movie is the look Susan gives to 12-year-old Josh as he walks away at the end of Big.

This movie is River Phoenix fading away at the end of Stand by Me.

This movie is important and special. Spike made this movie for us.

We have to save it.


Those lines sent shivers down my spine when I first read them, and they've given me a renewed vigor and zeal to try and save this film. But what can we do? Online petitions are lame, and have been proven time and time again not to work. Film lovers of the world need to attempt something that will phisically affect the bosses at WB's lives.

I'm not urging people to cause bodily harm or anything, but for instance, when fans tried to save the TV series Freaks and Geeks, they mail bombed the corporate NBC offices with bags of peanuts in what they referred to as "Operation Hoverchuck," an attack named after the character Bill who was deathly allergic to peanuts in the show. The campaign didn't save Freaks and Geeks, but it did get the network to devote a three-hour Friday night time slot to airing the never-before-played final three episodes.

If it were up to me, I say we all find copies of Sendak's original children's novel, tear out all of the pages, put each page in it's own envelope with a note saying, "Do not destroy this story. Signed, The Wild Things" and mail them to the WB offices.

What do you guys think we should do?
