First Clip From Shane Acker's 9

MTV has debuted a two-minute clip from director Shane Acker's 9, opening in theaters on September 9th.

The film features the voices of Elijah Wood, Jennifer Connelly, Crispin Glover, Martin Landau, Christopher Plummer and John C. Reilly. The animated fantasy epic is a feature-length expansion of Acker's short film of the same name. Produced by Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands, Sweeney Todd), Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), and Jim Lemley, the surreal tale takes place in a world parallel to our own, a post-apocalyptic fantasy in which a band of courageous rag dolls battles for the survival of civilization.

Looks freaking awesome and totally unique. I'm getting more and more interested in this film simply because its something we haven't seen before from an animated flick. I'm so happy that Focus Feature picked this up for a film. Its nice to see a dark movie that is aimed at a more mature audience.

Coraline was somewhat trippy, but maybe its because I saw it in 3D. That said, 9 looks freaken awesome and I really wish they did this movie in 3D.
