POSTER: Stunning New 9 Poster...

So there are few films that I get really excited for in a given year. This year you have 500 Days of Summer, Public Enemies, Where The Wild Things Are, and Moon, just to name a few. Well, a film that is looking to make its way into that list, if it's not already there, is the animated film, 9.

With a superb cast (icluding my girl Jennifer Connelly), great pedigree (produced by Tim Burton, blah, and Timur Bekmambatov, awesome), and some really awesome trailers, this film is looking to be one of the better animated films of this year. It comes to us from Shane Acker, whose short film of the same name, which was Oscar nominated, brings us this tale of 9 dolls who attempt to save humanity. Well, to add to that list of awesome promotional material, you can add this amazing new poster. It's the first official poster from Focus Features, the company behind the film, and the design is stunning. It's gorgeous, and the style of the poster (and the film itself), along with the newly announced PG-13 rating really has me excited. Check it out below!

9 takes place in a world parallel to our own, in which our very humanity is threatened. A group of rag dolls living a post-apocalyptic existence find one of their own, 9, who may be the key to their survival.

9 is both written and directed by visionary filmmaker Shane Acker, of two previous animated shorts The Hangnail and The Astounding Talents of Mr. Grenade. The screenplay was co-written by Acker and Pamela Pettler (Corpse Bride, Monster House). 9 was first an animated short that debuted in 2005 and received an Oscar nomination. Focus Features will be debuting 9 in theaters everywhere starting on September 9th.

Go see something good!
