One of the reasons I love being home, outside of seeing the family, is that I get access to my favorite TV channel, G4.

Yesturday, during G4's amazing show, Attack of The Show, they aired the newest trailer for Shane Ackers utterly beautiful dystopian future animated film, 9.

The new trailer not only feautres a few new shots, but it also features a look at each of the 9 dolls that will be at the head of this film, with my favorites being 3 and 4, a pair of twins. It will be interesting to not only see the interactions between these characters, but since they were all given life by a singular scientist, it will be interesting to see what differences each character will have in their actions, emotions, and personality.

Oh, and the film looks beyond gorgeous too. Check the trailer out below!

“When 9 (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.”

Based on Acker's Oscar nominated short film of the same name, the film not only features a dark and unique art style, that sort of mixes the sensibilities of older Tim Burton, just amped to 11, and the characters from LittleBigPlanet. This is one I've been looking forward to for a while, and can't wait to check it out when it hits theatres on 9.9.09.

Go see something good!
