9 is a computer animated film produced by Tim Burton (The Corpse Bride) and Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Nightwatch), directed by former WETA Digital artist Shane Acker, and featuring the music of Danny Elfman. Based on Acker’s Academy Award-nominated 2005 film festival short 9 is a post-apocalyptic nightmare in which all of humanity is threatened

Taken from the official plot synopsis:

“When 9 (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 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.”



But I'm completely fine with a new thread. Anything to bring the topic back up. This movie does look absolutely amazing. And if you haven't seen the short that the film is based off of...

Pity that Tim Burton had to bring Danny Elfman onboard. The music in the original short seems much more interesting than anything Danny might be able to offer.

No one bother looking things up first

Catch all is cool though if the powers that be wish it so. The other thread has a link to a HD version of the short as well.

This is about the third catch-all we've had for this, but I'm still totally psyched for it.

The most disappointing thing I've seen about it is it showed up on a list of Top 50 Geek Movies of 2009 and the linked trailer was on Youtube. It was the same trailer we've all seen, except whoever posted it switched the soundtrack to something just TERRIBLE. It made the trailer suck. It's really sad when some anonymous jerk can ruin something, and then that becomes its new face.
