New: The movie Director Spike Jonze spent years bringing this classic children's book to life on the big screen. While the book consists of only 10 pages, Jonze and writer Dave Eggers fleshed out the story, giving the wild creatures names and unique personalities. Raking in over $63 million at the box office in its first month, the film unearths the wild side in every demographic. Let the wild rumpus commence. Ben King/Warner Bros.
