9 Character Poster

A series of Character posters of 9 have surfaced online, here they are:
(Click on a poster to enlarge it.)

Christopher Plummer as 1, the oldest of the dolls, and their self-proclaimed leader. He is clever and sly, but also domineering, irritable, quick-tempered, and slow, if not unwilling, to trust 9.1 to protect us
Martin Landau as 2, a kind, delicate old inventor. He is fascinated by garbage, and loves to explore the wastelands and look for parts for his inventions. He is not in very good shape, always walking with a cane, and can only see with a lorgnette.2 to inspire us
3 and 4, curious but shy twin dolls. They are unable to speak, using flickering lights to communicate with each other, but when they need to explain things to someone else, their eyes turn into film projectors. They instinctively run and hide at the sight of danger.3 to define us
and 4 to teach us
John C. Reilly as 5, a healer, tutor, and skilled mechanic. He is the journeyman of 2, the great engineer and inventor. He is a diligent worker, a meek spirit, and a devoted friend. He is missing his left eye, which he presumably lost in a previous monster attack.5 to guide us

Crispin Glover as 6, a wild and impulsive artist. He has visions of the past and future, channeling his visions through drawings to interpret them, which are accurate in predicting events and help solve mysteries that puzzle 9.6 to lead us
Jennifer Connelly as 7, a female warrior. A rebel and a loner, she is fearless and brave. She is impatient and can be reckless and stubborn, but makes up for it with mobility and grace, caution of her surroundings, and calmness in dangerous situations.7 to defend us
Fred Tatasciore as 8, a giant, cumbersome brute. He is 1's personal bodyguard and would die for him, though he is crude and mocking towards everyone else. He is strong and fierce, wielding two masterful weapons, but isn't very clever and is easily deceived.8 to guard usElijah Wood as 9, the main character. Good-hearted, thoughtful, and sincere, he is always willing to risk his life to save others. Despite being a newcomer to the group, he displays leadership qualities that can help the others survive. He seeks truth in the history of the world and the dolls, and wishes to know the meaning of life.9 to save us

Number 7 looks quite determined! And he'd better be: just looks at the mechanical beast in the background...

The animated movie 9 may scare some young children, but it looks damn awesome!

9 Movie Official Trailer


9 is an upcoming sci-fi CGI animated movie created and directed by Shane Acker. It is co-produced by Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov and animated by Attitude Studio (in Luxembourg) and by Starz Animation (in Toronto), with a few sequences done by Duncan Studios in LA. The film can boast a nice voice cast with: Elijah Wood, Christopher Plummer, Martin Landau, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Connelly and Crispin Glover. 9 will be released on September 9, 2009, yes; that's 9.9.9!

Enjoy below the first official 9 trailer:

"When 9 (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 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."

9 is is actually a feature-length adaptation of Shane Acker's short film of the same name. Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov have been conquered by those doll-like creatures and their post-apocalyptic world, and so decided to produce a real movie.

Although CGI, the 9 movie has a stylized look resembling stop motion: it is hauntingly beautiful!

If you're wondering about the explosive soundtrack of this 9 trailer it's the song 'Welcome Home' by Coheed and Cambria.
