Oh, Pixar. You thought you were safe and secure in your computer-animated kingdom and no one could challenge your superiority. Okay, well that’s probably true. “Up” is amazing and I can’t wait to see it again. But there ARE other animated movies coming up this year and one that I can’t wait to see doesn’t have a hopping desk lamp in front of it.
Shane Acker’s “9” looks like one of the most original animated films in years with a imaginative aesthetic that’s “Little Big Planet” meets the apocalypse. Throw in a little of Coheed and Cambria’s “Welcome Home” (used to great effect in the film’s previous trailer) and I think this film is going to be one of the year’s most anticipated and successful films with “9” in the title.
Check out the new trailer after the jump. “9” hits theaters on (when else) September 9th.
