We here at Screen Rant have been anticipating the feature-length adaptation of Shane Acker's '9' all year long, and tomorrow all of our gushing praise and free promotion will come to an end, as 9 debuts in theaters everywhere.
Why have we been championing this film for so long? Well, for a couple reasons really:
- It's the uniquely original creation of a uniquely original visionary (Acker).
- Endorsements by both Tim Burton and Nightwatch director Timur Bekmambetov - two visionaries in their own right - who co-produced the film.
- The fact that 9 is based on Acker's awesome 2005 Oscar-nominated CGI short of the same name.
- The film is rated PG-13, meaning it's a CGI movie that's more for adults than kids (Yay!).
- The film looks like it could be the official good start to the Fall season (sorry Gamer).
Today I've decided to collect the best clips, trailers, images and posters for 9 in one place, to serve as your final prep kit for the movie (in case you're somehow still in the dark about it). I'll also point you to more clips and images, in case you still have 9 fever by the time we're done here.
You can also head to pg. 3 to learn how you can win Screen Rant's official 9 giveaway contest!
Let's kick things off with some multimedia enjoyment. I've laid the following videos out so that you can view them in order, starting with Shane Acker's 9 animated short, which was nominated for an Academy Award. After that we have a trailer for the feature-length version of 9, and some clips featuring the many (unique) tech-beasts from the film.
Get comfy in your chair, grab a snack and prepare to be spirited away into the world of 9:
