I haven’t even heard of this new CG movie called “9″ until the trailer for it popped up online. It looks pretty damn good, too. One of those kinda creepy, but also kinda very cool looking movies. “9″ was written and directed by Shane Acker, who has done a couple of short animated movies you’ve never heard of, so “9″ is pretty much his introduction to the world, which means getting Tim Burton in there was the best thing that could have happen to Acker. The plot: in a post-apocalypse world, some rag dolls (yes, rag dolls) must save humanity from what looks like killer machines. No, seriously. Kinda like a cross between a kiddie movie and “The Matrix”, really.
Featuring the voice work of Jennifer Connelly, John C. Reilly, Elijah Wood, Crispin Glover, Christopher Plummer, and Martin Landau.
Coming 9-9-09. Get it? 9? Yeah.
