The Week In Awesome! Mouse Guard & More

Here are five things that got me excited this week!
.

.
1. Where the Wild Things Are in theaters - The adaptation of Maurice Sendak's classic picture book by Spike Jonez is getting stellar reviews, so I'm really excited to watch the movie, which debuts in theaters this Friday. At work, I'm pushing a lot of Where the Wild Things Are merchandise, including stuffed wild things, the Gregory Maguire appreciation of Maurice Sendak book, and Wild Things by Dave Eggers. And of course the picture book itself.
.
2. Paranormal Activity - Not only did the low budget horror film come in at #5 over the weekend box office, with a very limited release, but the movie finally gets a wide release this weekend due to its success.
.
3. Toy Story 3 theatrical trailer - The third Pixar movie based around the lovable toys comes out next year in 3-D, and the official trailer looks fantastic. Watch it here.
.
4. Mouse Guard: Legend of the Guard - A four-issue anthology series taking place in David Petersen's Mouse Guard universe will come out between installments of the creator's prequel mini-series Mouse Guard: The Black Axe. The creators for the anthology were hand-picked by Petersen as being artists that would fit well with the sensibility of the series. I love the series, so more is great news.
.
5. The Crazies theatrical trailer - More fast-moving zombies. Sort of. Anyways, the trailer for this new horror movie looks like a lot of fun, remaking the 1973 film by George Romero. Watch it here.
