A new trailer for Focus Features’ post-apocalyptic animated feature 9 based upon the short film of the same name by Shane Acker hit online today, and it’s pretty friggin’ eye popping!
The story follows a ragdoll named 9 who wakes up in a post-apocalyptic world and soon finds others of his kind in hiding. He convinces them that continuing to hide is only prolonging their extinction and the only way to stop the awful machines that roam the countryside looking to destroy anything they can is to stand up to them.
Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Connelly, Crispin Glover, and Martin Landau lend their voices to the characters of 9; and as you can see from the trailer, with this unique vision of the world after our time has ended, director Shane Acker is making a very strong debut.
9 opens on September 9th, 2009; keep it here for updates!
In the interim check out the new trailer and even the entire short film below!
