Must Watch: First Full Trailer for Shane Acker's 9!
We definitely have a treat for everyone today. Focus Features has debuted the first trailer for an animated film called 9 that is being produced by Tim Burton and Wanted's Timur Bekmambetov. You need to see this. It's being described many different ways, but I like this one the best - if LittleBigPlanet's Sackboy found himself in the world of Half-Life 2. That might only mean something to gaming geeks, but either way, you still must watch this trailer. Not only is it visually astounding, but the story and experience overall look incredible! I'm sold - this is the first time I've ever been this excited for a non-Pixar animated movie!
