Focus Features' Film "9" Trailer Similar to PS3's LittleBigPlanet
The first trailer and footage for Focus Features' mysterious film 9 has hit the Web (video linked above) with some striking similarities to a recently released PS3 game.
9 is a story developed and directed by Shane Acker with stylish film vets Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov producing. Like Terminator Salvation, it's set in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by machines - only this world is devoid of humans.
You see 9 looks like a sack puppet only he's a living being. He quickly discovers others like him and sets off to discover what wiped out the humans and how he and his companions might be the planet's last hope for survival.
The crew over at Media Molecule must be applauding this trailer right about now. You see, their new PS3 exclusive game LittleBigPlanet also features a protagonist stitched together from a sack held in place with a zipper. Seeing 9 and his buddies in action is eerily reminiscent of the style and aesthetics of playing LittleBigPlanet. The similarities are surely coincidental but cool to note nonetheless.
9 stars the voices of Elijah Wood, John C. Reilly, Jennifer Connelly, Martin Landau, Christopher Plummer and Crispin Glover and will be in theaters on 09-09-2009.

And the award for stupidest movie ever thought of goes to.... That Sackboy knockoff 9! For those of you who think this is for kids, I am going to prove you wrong.
What parent, in their right mind, would take their kid to see a movie about what happens after a nuclear war. Sad thing is even the trailer is worse then limbo to me. If you think I'm joking I nearly threw up watching it, I am DEAD serious.
I rather watch 10,000 BC then this stupid movie. I could record poop and it would be more interesting then this trailer. It makes me so angry that they think they can shove this crap down kids throats....
Honestly I hope the person who made this is ruined! And has to start working again. Oh my god! It's like they made the movie TO SUCK!
And for those who think I'm over reacting over a trailer, Your fools! They just said the entire movie's storyline in the trailer! Holy crap! Honestly I have never been this angry over a movie coming out. I rather watch gumby. I would rather watch a ROCK!
And you know whats horrible. I just opened a bunch of Christmas stuff and was in a good mood until I saw this trailer. I got EVERYTHING I wanted; and this still put me in a bad mood.
Action IRL: *Takes a deep breath*
Okay now. What is wrong with the people who made this? Anyone have a answer? They are trying to capitalize on a recent popular game in hopes of making money. I think I may start a petition to stop this director from ever making another movie.
So whats everyone else think of this movie? The trailer put me in a bad mood and I'm calm headed so I don't recommend even watching it.
