9 is an animated movie both written and directed by Shane Acker, who was nominated for an Academy Award in 2005 for the film short that this feature length movie is based on.
In a post-apocalyptic future where humanity has become extinct, 9 (Elijah Wood) awakens to find himself alone in a world devoid of all life. It’s only by chance that he later discovers a small community of others like him, who have created a safe haven to protect themselves from the terrifying machines, that roam the Earth with the intent of exterminating them. As their plight becomes increasingly more desperate, 9 persuades the others that the only way to ensure their survival is to mount an offensive against the machines and to eradicate them from the planet. However in a twist of fate they also discover that the survival of the planet and the future of civilization will depend on them.
After a very early release of the trailer (see below) which was released around Christmas time, it’s been quite awhile since there’s been any other news about the film. It seems like it’s been a bit of a slow burner, but I’m sure all that will change in the run up to its release.
It’s definitely a movie I’ve been looking forward to watching. The first time I saw the trailer I felt quite excited about the look and feel of the movie and I’m not a huge fan of animated movies. But this one has certainly got my interest; between this Terminator Salvation, The Road and 2012 we apocalyptic movie fans certainly will have been spoilt by the end of this year.
Anyway here’s the trailer see what you think.
