Trailer for Post-Apocalyptic Animated Feature 9
I know I’m about as sick as I can be of Tim Burton and his works, one of the reasons I’m not looking forward to Alice in Wonderland, but in this case he only served as a producer, alongside Night/Day Watch helmer Timur Bekmambetov, and the result is more than worth paying attention to.
The film is called simply 9, and the first trailer showed its face over at Apple today so we had to grab it for you guys. 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!
