I remember reading the book as a kid and that was in the 60's. Looks great, I like movies like this. They bring the wonderment of adventure back into my life and remind me of what it was like to dream a little dream.

Does Hollywood need to make every book into a movie? I'm not sure about this movie yet.

I think it looks pretty creative and awesome. I like how it looks as it will appeal to a more mature audience also.

Also, good choice of music in the trailer.  Not my favorite Arcade Fire song by a long shot, but its a good fit thematically speaking.

I remember reading that book when I was a little kid. Am I the only one that thought the book was really strange...? (I liked it, but the monsters faces freaked me out)

Nah, when I was little that book used to really scare me but I used to get scared pretty easily. I think most kids get scared of that book though.

Oh man... That is not the way I want a Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs movie, it should be live action, and be a drama!

Great song choice, looks excellent.

Spike Jonze never disappoints.
