Complete Character Poster Series for Shane Acker's 9!
by Alex Billington
June 27, 2009
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.

Doesn't defend and guard mean the same thing? These are so sweet. This movie is going to be amazing. It brings me back to my childhood when I used to play with toys and make movie scenarios with them. It always started out with "In a world...."

#2 I think defending means acting and guarding means being alert. (And they can both save which is number 9.)

I remember this when it was a digital short by Shane when it appeared on the internet a few years ago. I seem to remember it saying he made it in film school. It is an awesome short and if you have not seen it look it up before you see the movie. I'm not very impressed with Tim Burtons named being attached. I can't explain why, but something about Tim Burton and his films(excluding Big Fish) rubs me the wrong way. But since Shane is still writing and directing then I think it should still be awesome.

I'm not sure if these are posters or artwork for some trading cards. But #3 (Rob) is right. His link points to the correct '9' image for this series. This is awesome. I hope I'll see this in the Philippines. Which is unlikely since they haven't even released Coraline in any of the cinemas here.

Yeah check out #3's link for the real ending to the series. This movie looks pretty cool, hope it doesn't disappoint.
