I guesss the general concensus is that it is in fact test footage because it looks so awkward.

I hope the real thing is a hell of a lot better than this.

My hopes are low...

The guy on AICN who claims to have seen a rough cut of THINGS says the kid in the clip is not the kid in the movie, the kid's suit is different, and the voice of the depicted monster is to be performed by James Gandolfini, not some random mumbling surfer dude.

This might be test footage, but it still sucks. The property does not deserve this silly version of a great story.

PLease. Not another short picture book to lose its voice and charm through adaptation.

The Gene Deitch version is the perfect length at seven minutes, although Peter Schickele's (PDQ Bach himself!) narration and soundtrack score are a little "precious". It's on YeTube.

I have a vague memory of seeing Max and the Wild Things, animated in a similar style to the Deitch version, on Sesame Street reruns a few years ago.

Suppose John Lasseter had directed the movie 25 years ago, with a hand-drawn/early 3D hybrid technique?
It would have looked like this (I know a lot of people here have already seen this, or worked on it):

The CG animation isn't great, but the suit is fun. It's Spike Jonze, so it'll probably be worth a look.
