If you’re looking forward to Shane Acker’s upcoming film 9 as much as we are, then you’ve probably already seen the cool website, the posters, clips and other ways the filmmakers are getting the word out about the movie around the Internets. And now there’s a new way you can experience and join in all the 9 adventure yourself — and maybe even help make a bit of history along the way. How is this possible? Read on to find out.
The Talisman is a key component in the story of the movie 9 and is a device integral to the film’s “Stitchpunk” characters. Now you can create your own Talisman to share your pictures and thoughts with friends. To make this happen, check out the film’s website and “dive into the World of the Talisman” Once on the site, user pics from around the world can be viewed in an “infinite zooming” gallery.
You can then “create your Personal Talisman by uploading your own photos, which can then be shared via email, blogs or social networks. Once you upload your Talisman, your memories will be preserved forever.” After you’ve created your Talisman, the site will give you a personalized URL that you can share with friends. There’s also a widget version of this you can stick on your profile at MySpace, Facebook or the social networking site of your choice. Cool, right?
9, which features the voice talents of Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Christopher Plummer, Martin Landau and Jennifer Connelly, hits theaters on 9.9.09.
