9 Teaser Trailer

This looks really interesting. 9 was a 2005 Oscar nominated short by director Shane Acker, who was part of the Lord of the Rings special effects team. Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov (director of Wanted) have teamed up to produce a full length film also named 9, directed by Shane Acker. The animated film has the voice talents of Elijah Wood, Jennifer Connelly, Crispin Glover, Martin Landau, Christopher Plummer, and John C. Reilly.

The film takes place in a world parallel to our own, in which the very legacy of humanity is threatened. A community of fully mobile rag dolls living a post-apocalyptic existence find one of their own, 9 (Wood), displaying leadership qualities that may help them to survive. The conflicted but resilient community includes 1 (Plummer), a domineering war veteran; 2 (Landau), an aged inventor; 5 (Reilly), a stalwart mechanic; 6 (Glover), a visionary and artist; and 7 (Connelly), a brave warrior.

Looks amazing and I am very intrigued after watching the original short film. 9 will be out on 9-9-09!
