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.

There is nothing beautiful about that poster. It's drab, and it's boring. The movie looks interesting, and could very well be a beautiful piece of animation. This poster though? Boring.

#3 As far as I know, no Tim Burton movie has truely been a kids movie. And if you've seen the trailer (it's in the related articles) you'll see that it features a bit too much destruction and war for it to be a kids movie. Burtons movies are often different, they bring up odd subjects, featuring wierd stuff as well as often bringing up the subject of Good through Evil deeds. Can't wait for this movie, but doubt I'll find anyone to see it with...

ACK!!!! "VISIONARY DIRECTOR" I HATE that term. It nods to Zack Snyder-esque nonsense now. Ugh. Small thing to pick up on, yes, but I am damn excited for this.

@ 7 don't worry about the term. Its all for publicity anyway but either way this movie should be good.

If you scan the barcode on the poster you get some additonal teaser trailers. Not sure if they are openly available or not.... (9.msite.tv)
