If you had any doubts that Spike Jonze's monsters with a childlike outlook on life would make you melt into a puddle of tears, the latest trailer should seal the deal.

Sure, it's ripe with indie-movie standbys: creamy sunsets, sweeping chorals and a misunderstood boy living in his own fantasy, but damn if it's not beautiful. I'm being cautiously optimistic about this movie, but with all this hugging between mom, boy, and monster... I just know it's going to reduce me to tears at one point.

Where the Wild Things Are will be released on October 16th.
