Nine Character Posters for Shane Ackers’ 9
Check out nine character posters from Shane Acker’s CG animated movie “9″ that have arrived in our mailbox. The movie is based on a short story Acker did in 2005, and is from a script by Acker and Pamela Pettler.
When 9 (voice of Elijah Wood) first comes to life, he finds himself in a post-apocalyptic world where all humans are gone, and it is only by chance that he discovers a small community of others like him taking refuge from fearsome machines that roam the earth intent on their extinction. Despite being the neophyte of the group, 9 convinces the others that hiding will do them no good. They must take the offensive if they are to survive, and they must discover why the machines want to destroy them in the first place. As they’ll soon come to learn, the very future of civilization may depend on them.
Featuring the voices of Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Connelly, Crispin Glover, Martin Landau, Christopher Plummer, and Fred Tatasciore. Directed by Shane Acker.
“9″ opens, appropriately enough, September 9, 2009.
