G4 just premiered a new trailer for Shane Acker’s 9, a CGI-designed-to-look-like-stop-motion film produced by Tim Burton and Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov coming in September. The plot sounds basically like if Terminator Salvation date-raped Wall E at a frat party.
When 9 first comes to life, he finds himself in a post-apocalyptic world. All humans are gone, and it is only by chance that he discovers a small community of others like him taking refuge from fearsome machines that roam the earth intent on their extinction. Despite being the neophyte 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 they must discover why the machines want to destroy them in the first place. As they’ll soon come to learn, the very future of civilization may depend on them.
…But the party really kicks into high gear when 9 runs into Six from Blossom. Boy, the 90s were stupid.
