By: Carmine Pascuzzi

Madman Entertainment is thrilled to announce 9, the breathtakingly inventive and visually stunning new animated feature from visionary filmmaker Tim Burton will release in Australia on Wednesday, December 9, 2009.

A remarkable work of animated fantasy that fuses the unique worlds of imagination and innovation into the next science fiction masterpiece, 9 is a triumphant collaborative triumvirate: co-produced by Tim Burton (Alice In Wonderland, The Corpse Bride, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) and Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Night Watch, Day Watch) and directed by Shane Acker, 9 is the feature length adaptation of Acker’s 2004 Academy Award nominated short film.

9 is a post-apocalyptic fable that follows the action packed adventures of a small ‘stichpunk’ creation #9, who finds himself in a world ruled by fearsome machines. After stumbling upon a group of 8 other ‘stitchpunk’ creatures – each given the spark of life by a scientist in the final days of humanity - hiding in fear, #9 rallies the miniature warriors together for an epic battle to salvage the legacy of civilisation.

Featuring a stellar voice cast including Elijah Wood as #9 (The Lord of the Rings Trilogies), John C. Reilly (Magnolia, Step Brothers), Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind, Blood Diamond) Crispin Glover (Charlie’s Angels) and Christopher Plummer (The Sound of Music.)

Already an international box office success, 9 opened at #1 in the US taking USD 15.3 million at the box office on 1,661 screens and is set to take over USD $35 million.
