Movies: Shane Acker's '9'

Perhaps you've seen the trailer for Shane Acker's full-length feature, 9, but it's below if you haven't.
Wow, all I can say is it looks awesome.
9 is based on Acker's award-winning 11 minute short, which premiered at the Sundance film festival in 2005. If you haven't seen it, go watch it. Now.
The film won numerous awards including the gold medal at the Student Academy Awards, "Best in Show" at the 2005 SIGGRAPH Electronic Theater and it was nominated for an Academy Award in 2006.
Producers include Acker, Tim Burton, Timur Bekmambetov and Jim Lemley. The movie will flesh out the stories of the film's nine sentient rag dolls, who inhabit a post-apocalyptic world and are hunted by a band of soul-sucking mechanical beasts.
The release date's been set for Sept 9, 2009. This trailer, courtesy of Focus Features, premiered on G4's Attack of the Show Tuesday, May 19.
