Earlier in the week we featured the first character poster from Shane Acker's animated movie 9. After some searching, and help from a publicist, we were able to find all 8 of the poster in the series. These posters count up from 1 all the way to 9 featuring a new character from the movie on each one. If you've seen the trailer than you know that it's about this group of ragdoll heroes and 9, voiced by Elijah Wood, is the final key to saving the world. This is a cool little poster campaign, a lot like Coraline's A to Z posters, and I wanted to make sure we featured all of them! Thanks to everyone who helped find everyone last one.
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.
