From legendary producer Tim Burton (Corpse Bride, Batman Forever), comes the visually stunning animated feature, 9. Based on director Shane Acker‘s 2005 Academy Award® nominated short film of the same name, this post-apocalyptic animation with heart is available to buy on Blu-ray and DVD from 22 February courtesy of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment (UK).

This cool, gritty and exciting story features an all-star voice cast including Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Sin City), who provides the voice for 9, a small “Stitchpunk” created by an ageing scientist who puts his soul into his creations. Together with his resilient group of scientifically created friends voiced by Christopher Plummer (Inside Man, Up), John C. Reilly (Step Brothers Talladega Nights: the Ballad of Ricky Bobby), Crispin Glover (Beowulf, The Doors), Jennifer Connelly (Inkheart, Creation), Martin Landau (The X-Files, Sleepy Hollow) the plucky team are on a quest for survival in their desperate world. With the dream pairing of Tim Burton working alongside producer Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted), 9 is one film not to be missed.

When 9 first comes to life, he finds himself in a post-apocalyptic world where all humans are gone. It’s only by chance that he discovers a small group of friends that, like himself, are named after numbers. Together they take refuge from fearsome machines that roam the earth intent on their extinction.

Despite being the newest member of the group, 9 convinces the others that hiding will do them no good, they must take the offensive if they are to survive and discover why the machines want to destroy them in the first place. Soon they will come to learn the very future of civilization may depend on them.

This feast for the eyes feature takes CGI filmmaking to another level and is also accompanied by a superb music score from Danny Elfman (Corpse Bride, Spiderman 3). 9’s amazing special features take you deeper and closer into this amazing world and include: interviews with the creator and director, Shane Acker, on the making of the film, behind-the-scenes footage of the cast, along with the original short film plus much more.

If you are a fan of sci-fi films and amazing animation then this is definitely a must-have for your Blu-ray & DVD collection.

A Special Limited Edition Blu-ray will also be available online only that includes a 120 page hardback book including; The Scientists Journal, sketches and storyboard art.
