If you've been to the movies any time in the last two months, you've most likely seen the trailer for the upcoming animated feature "9". Produced by Tim Burton and Directed by Shane Acker, the flick's got a distinct flavor all its own and looks like a nice little dark alternative to all of Pixar's happy bug-eyed onslaughts.
When 9 (The Lord of the Ring’s Elijah Wood) first comes to life, he finds himself in a post-apocalyptic world. All humans are gone, and it is only by chance that he discovers a small community of others like him taking refuge from fearsome machines that roam the earth intent on their extinction. Despite being the neophyte of the group, 9 convinces the others that hiding will do them no good. They must take the offensive if they are to survive, and they must discover why the machines want to destroy them in the first place. As they'll soon come to learn, the very future of civilization may depend on them.
The newest theatrical trailer is down below. Enjoy!
