In this extended look at Focus Features' computer animated '9', a group of sapient rag dolls fights for their survival when they suddenly get attacked by a winged beast.
In anticipation of the forthcoming theatrical release of "9", a five minutes clip from this computer animated movie has been unraveled. Highlighting on the dolls' struggle to save one another when out of the blue a winged beast attacks them, the clip starts off with 9 telling 1 that he is "nothing but a coward."
While the two are involved in a heated argument, a winged beast flies around the building. Fearing for his life, 1 prepares to get away but the beast suddenly smashes into the glass clock above them, begins to launch its attack on the dolls and forces them to flee for their lives. During their effort to escape a brutal death by the beast, they get separated but find a way to finally kill the beast hand-in-hand.
A feature-length adaptation of Shane Acker's short film of the same name, "9" follows a sapient rag doll who finds himself in a post-apocalyptic world. Discovering a small community of others like him taking refuge from fearsome machines that roam the earth intent on their extinction, he convinces the others that they must take the offensive if they are to survive, and they must discover why the machines want to destroy them. Soon they learn the very future of civilization may depend on them.
The animation feature film features the voices of Elijah Wood, Jennifer Connelly, John C. Reilly, Christopher Plummer, Martin Landau and Crispin Glover. Set to debut in U.S. theaters on September 9, it is directed by Shane Acker, who also serves as the film's co-scribbler, and produced by Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov.
