Based on Shane Acker’s Academy Award-nominated short film of the same name, “9” follows nine ragdolls on a quest to save humanity in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Yup, you read that right, and while the description may cause you to scratch your head, one look at the film is all it takes to know there’s something here worth watching.
Featuring the voice talents of Elijah Wood, Jennifer Connelly, John C. Reilly, Crispin Glover, Martin Landau and Christopher Plummer, “9” hits theaters in limited release on September 9 (in other words, 9/9/09). Below, take a look at the very first clip from “9,” exclusively right here on MTV.com (click here to watch it in glorious high-definition). And when you’re through with that, check out the equally spellbinding trailer here.
