Focus Debuts New Poster For 9

Film School Rejects has put up a new poster for Focus Features' 9, directed by Shane Acker and featuring the voices of Elijah Wood, Jennifer Connelly, Martin Landau, Christopher Plummer, John C. Reilly and Crispin Glover. It opens in theaters on September 9.

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.

Looks cool and so does the movie. I'm still really excited for this film and happy that were finally getting adult themed animation. No offense to Pixar and DreamWorks Animation, but its time we finally see animated films that are more leaned toward older audiences. I'm glad Focus Feature is doing this with 9 and I hope its the first of many adult animated films.
