"9" Teaser Trailer Released

The teaser trailer for the upcoming computer-animated film 9 (based on the Academy Award-nominated short of the same name) has been released (view it in HD on Apple's website).

Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambatov (Nightwatch, Wanted) are producing the film, which will be directed by Shane Acker (who directed the original 2005 short).

The official plot synopsis included Elijah Wood as the character 9, Jennifer Connelly as the warrior 7, Martin Landau (who was in Burton's Ed Wood and Sleepy Hollow) playing the role of the aged inventor 2, Crispin Glover playing the visionary artist 6 (who will be in Burton's Alice in Wonderland), Christopher Plummer as war veteran 1, and John C. Reilly as 5, the mechanic.

Danny Elfman will also be composing music for the film, according to the official synopsis on Apple's trailer website. Pamela Pettler (co-writer of Corpse Bride) co-wrote the screenplay.

The epic science-fiction action-adventure was originally intended to be released at the end of this year. Instead, Focus Features has pushed it back to September 9th, 2009 (9-9-09, get it?).

You can also watch a (slightly) lower quality version of the HD teaser trailer on YouTube:

Holy crap... A Coheed and Cambria song being used in a trailor that has Tim Burton affiliation? So there is a God... Combining my two greatest loves... I am speechless.

Shit. This is going to be awesome on sooo many levels! And The Night Watch director is a co-producer as well! It's also cool to know that Tim supports rising talents such as Shane Acker.

Ok, I want to apolagise about the posts that I sent. I was reading prievious posts about something like this (with the cast and all) but with a rediculous plot from the movie. Seeing as wikipedia is created and changed by... people, it must be that same guy, so, again, just ignore. Tim would not do something like THAT to Alice in Wonderland!

P.S. 9 looks like a kick ass film

P.P.S. Happy New Year!
