9 is the first full length feature film from Director Shane Acker and the visionary filmmakers Tim Burton (Batman / Edward Scissorhands) and Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted / Nightwatch). It is based upon a short film of the same name that was made by Acker back in 2005 (click here to visit a page where you can watch the short, the original trailer and an extended clip from the upcoming movie).
The story of 9 takes place in a post-apocalyptic and alternate reality future where all of humanity is gone. The remaining inhabitants are rag dolls but their very existence is threatened by fearsome killing machines determined to hunt the rag dolls down to extinction. 9 (voiced by Elijah Wood) is created to help protect the remaining raggies, but rather than guide them to safety, 9 convinces them that their only chance of survival is to fight back.
An awesome and almost five minute long action scene from the film has just been released. It’s low quality but well worth a watch. Check it out:
9 will be released in the USA 9 September 2009
