Not shocking that there is so much Spike Jonze stuff on this one, since I’m guessing he and Eggers are probably attached at the hip these days.  Naturally this is all very good stuff, as all of the Wholphin series seem to be.

All the info (courtesy of McSweeney’s e mail robot), is after the trailer.
