It's one of the most anticipated animated features to come down the pike in a long while. Produced by Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov, the film promises to be a great success.
The story unfolds in the near future. Mankind no longer exists, destroyed by machines of our own making. Instead, a group sentient puppet-like creatures try to survive, mostly by avoiding the many machines still operating in the outside world. 1 (Plummer) is the leader, 2 (Landau is a frail inventor), 7 (Connelly) is a gutsy warrior, and so on. A newcomer named 9 (Wood) arrives on the scene and compels the group to explore the outside world, a decision which will change their lives -- and quite possibly the world's -- forever.
Directed by rookie Shane Acker, based on his Oscar-winning short of the same name, 9 opens nationwide on Sept. 9 -- yes, 9-9-09, ScreenStar.com reports.
