A supposedly leaked clip of Spike Jonze‘s Where the Wild Things Are was the talk of the Internet over the weekend. Was it real? Was it fake? Jonze knows, and he’s laying the rumors to rest.

In a statement released by Warner Bros., Jonze revealed the origins of the clip, saying:

“That was a very early test with the sole purpose of just getting some footage to Ben our VFX (visual effects) supervisor to see if our VFX plan for the faces would work. The clip doesn’t look or feel anything like the movie, the Wild Thing suit is a very early cringy prototype, and the boy is a friend of ours, Griffin, who we had used in a Yeah Yeah Yeahs video we shot a few weeks before. We love him, but he is not in the actual film…Oh, and that is not a wolf suit, it’s a lamb suit we bought on the Internet. Talk to you later…”

Over at Slashfilm, Peter Sciretta discusses some early negative feedback for Wild Things, saying audiences at early test screenings have “complained that the film is too adult and even too scary for children.” For more, click on the link below!
