Opening on September 9th is director Shane Acker’s debut feature film “9”. The film is based on his short that won an Academy Award, and with the help of producers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov, he got to make a feature. While I have yet to see “9”, it looks really cool and the people I’ve spoken to that have seen it have told me positive things. So if you’d like to take a look at some footage, after the jump are 6 clips from the film and a 4 minute featurette.

9 final movie poster Shane Acker.jpgHere’s the official synopsis:

When #9 (voiced by Elijah Wood) first comes to life, he finds himself in a post-apocalyptic world. All humans are gone, and it is only by chance that he discovers a community of other small beings like him taking refuge from fearsome machines that roam the landscape intent on doing them harm. 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 ever 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.

A Focus Features presentation in association with Relativity Media of a Jim Lemley/Tim Burton/Timur Bekmambetov production, 9‘s voice cast includes Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Connelly, Christopher Plummer, Crispin Glover, Martin Landau, and Fred Tatasciore. The film is produced by Jim Lemley, Tim Burton, Timur Bekmambetov, and Dana Ginsburg. The story is by Shane Acker, and the screenplay is by Pamela Pettler (Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride, Monster House).  The film is directed by Shane Acker.

And one last thing, I’ve started posting film clips in a new way. Since the site runs pre-roll (it pays for all the bandwidth we use), I’ve started posting all the clips in one video. What that means is, once you push play, you’ll probably have to sit through one commercial and then all the clips will play in order. While some may have liked the old method, it’s a lot easier to post them like this and if you were going to watch the film clips anyway, I figure it doesn’t matter they’re all in one video.
