Check This Out: Number 8 Character Poster for Shane Acker's 9
Armed with a giant kitchen cleaver and half a scissor blade, the none-too-bright muscle and enforcer of the group, 8 (voiced by Fred Tatasciore), was created to help the others physically survive the dangerous, post-apocalyptic world. io9 has debuted a new character poster for Shane Acker's animated movie 9 to compliment the official poster. I was expecting to see an entire series of these posters (from 1 to 9), but 24 hours after its debut, not a single other poster has popped up yet. Once they do put out an entire series of posters, I'll make sure to feature them again. For now, feast your eyes on this character poster for 9's 8.
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.

Yeah, kinda weird they just randomly start at 8, not put it out as a series. I could at least see them starting at 1 and have a countdown for each week or day leading up to the premiere. Kinda ID each character without showing their face, and at 9(or 10) they're all there as a main poster.

No, they starts at 9 (the first Poster was with the Character 9), now 8, probably the next one will be 7, then 6, aso.

I guess it would just flow well if they started at 1, ya know, just to build it up towards 9. oh well

I love the "junkyard chic" style this film has going for it - using various scrap items to make something new. I'm especially digging how the rusty nail, wire, and kitchen knife have been modded into a broadsword. However, all the "bad machine" enemies I've seen so far sorta remind me of that scene in Toy Story where they meet all the "mutant" toys that have repaired themselves with random parts.

Perhaps they are counting down to release? Not releasing a poster every 24 hours or some such but a new poster every 2 weeks or such till the 9/9 release date.

Psyched for this movie! I think it has the potential to be incredibly cool and refreshing when it comes to computer animated movies as oppose to the typical 'kid stuff' you get all the time...
