Beautiful Official Poster for Shane Acker's 9 Finally Revealed!
Focus Features has finally debuted the official poster for Shane Acker's 9, the animated movie featuring the voices of Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Connelly, Crispin Glover, Christopher Plummer, and Martin Landau. This arrives just a week or so after we featured a Russian poster for 9 that other websites also praised. This really is a beautiful poster and I'm so glad to see Focus Features end up choosing a wonderful design like this. I'm also happy to see that this got a PG-13 rating, which definitely means that it'll be very dark and edgy. Thanks to our good friends at Film School Rejects for debuting this beauty today.
9 takes place in a world parallel to our own, in which our very humanity is threatened. A group of rag dolls living a post-apocalyptic existence find one of their own, 9, who may be the key to their survival.
9 is both written and directed by visionary filmmaker Shane Acker, of two previous animated shorts The Hangnail and The Astounding Talents of Mr. Grenade. The screenplay was co-written by Acker and Pamela Pettler (Corpse Bride, Monster House). 9 was first an animated short that debuted in 2005 and received an Oscar nomination. Focus Features will be debuting 9 in theaters everywhere starting on September 9th.
