Check This Out: Russian Poster for Shane Acker's 9
We've all seen the trailers, we all know how great this looks, so it's about time we get a poster for Shane Acker's 9! Unfortunately, it's a Russian poster, but I still love the look of it. I love all the vibrant colors of the main characters; I love how the 9 in the middle is made out of ragdoll material; I love how the evil machine with the red eye is creeping out of the middle; I love how the shadow beneath the Russian title turns into 09-09-09 for its release date. It's really just an all-around gorgeous poster, the kind I'd love to have on my wall if this turns out to be as amazing of a movie as we're all hoping (and I'm sure it will be).
Thanks to our friends over at IMPAwards for finding the poster, as I don't speak any Russian at all.
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.
