As we’ve said before here at The Flickcast, we’re very interested in the upcoming animated film 9, directed by Tim Burton protege’ Shane Acker and Exec. Produced by Burton and director Timur Bekmabetov. From what we’ve seen so far it, combines all of our favorite genres: sci-fi, drama, suspense and action to form what could be one of the most interesting and original films released this year.
In the past, we’ve been able to bring you some details about the film, including the very first poster. Now, we’re pleased to let you know that the film has a new website where you can get even more information and hopefully becomes as interested in the film as we are. This new site differs from the current one devoted to the film over at Focus Features in that it provides glimpses into the minds of the characters and the scientist who created them. Its a very cool way to learn more about the film, the story and its characters.
9 features the voices of Ellijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Connelly and Christopher Plummer as the rag-tag band of living, fighting toys who take up arms after the world of humans is destroyed. 9 hits theaters on September 9th.
Before that, be sure to check out the new website. Also, because we can, you can also take a look at the trailer for the film after the break.
